I love you, Yahweh, my strength, my Saviour, you have saved me from violence.

Yahweh is my rock and my fortress, my deliverer is my God.

I take refuge in him, my rock, my shield, my saving strength, my stronghold, my place of refuge.

I call to Yahweh who is worthy of praise, and I am saved from my foes.

With Death's breakers closing in on me, Belial's torrents ready to swallow me, Sheol's snares every side of me, Death's traps lying ahead of me,

I called to Yahweh in my anguish, I cried for help to my God; from his Temple he heard my voice, my cry came to his ears.

( R )

Then the earth quaked and rocked, the mountains' foundations shuddered, they quaked at his blazing anger.

Smoke rose from his nostrils, from his mouth devouring fire (coals were kindled at it).

He parted the heavens and came down, a storm-cloud underneath his feet; riding one of the winged creatures, he flew, soaring on the wings of the wind.

His covering he made the darkness, his pavilion dark waters and dense cloud.

A brightness lit up before him, hail and blazing fire.  Yahweh thundered from the heavens, the Most High made his voice heard.

He shot his arrows and scattered them, he hurled his lightning and routed them.

The very springs of ocean were exposed, the world's foundations were laid bare, at your roaring, Yahweh, at the blast of breath from your nostrils!

He reached down from on high, snatched me up, pulled me from the watery depths, rescued me from my mighty foe, from my enemies who were stronger than I.

( R )

They assailed me on my day of disaster but Yahweh was there to support me;

He freed me, set me at large, he rescued me because he loves me.

Yahweh rewards me for my uprightness, as my hands are pure, so he repays me,

Since I have kept the ways of Yahweh, and not fallen away from my God.

His judgements are all before me, his statutes I have not put away from me.

I am blameless before him, I keep myself clear of evil.  So Yahweh repaid me for acting uprightly because he could see I was pure.

( R )

The Nazarene Acts
of the Apostles

Also known as
The Recognitions of Clement

Ever wonder why PAUL and not PETER received the mission to the lost tribes?  Wasn't Peter the stone upon which the "church" was to be built?  In this new translation of the Nazarene Acts, we follow Kefa (Peter) as he itinerates from Jerusalem and up the Mediterranean coast up to Tripoli, as recorded in the journals of his successor, Clement of Rome (Phi 4:3).  Every message Kefa preached, the company he kept, and the great works of faith the the Almighty accomplished through him are herein recorded.  This 300 page volume has been 'hidden' in the back of an obscure volume of the "Church Fathers" all this time.  Could it be that, in establishing the Gentile 'church' by pushing away from Judaism, this history was purposely hidden?
