Tehillim - Psalms

WATCH: Tehillim: Psalm 27 – Apr 05 2020 – A Psalm for the “Season of Reflection”

Shalom, everyone! Psalm 27 is traditionally recited daily during both morning and evening prayer services during the period on the Hebrew calendar from Rosh Chodesh Elul (Sixth Month) through Shemini Atzeret, which falls on the 22nd of Tishrei (Ethanim). This period is known as the “Season of Reflection” before and during the High Holy Days. While Psalm 27 is usually recited daily during the “Season of Reflection,” some Hebrews prefer to recite Psalm 27 on a daily basis regardless of the season.

Psalm 27 was written by David, King of Yisrael. This psalm reminds us that The Almighty is our Savior and Protector. We need not fear anyone and any situation because The Almighty has promised that as long as we seek and serve Him, He will save us and protect us from our enemies. We must trust Him; He will honor us for our trust in Him. We must support Him, standing firm in His principles, His Torah, even in the face of rejection from loved ones. He rewards those who diligently seek Him, and He will protect His faithful ones from harm during the season of His final judgment of the earth.
