The Psalm Project: Psalm 23

by | Oct 8, 2021

Adapted from a Mizmor of David (Psalm 23)


To be played upon the stringed instrument


YAHUAH ro’i lo ah-sar


The Self-Existent, Eternal One–

YAHUAH shepherds me;

I lack no good thing.

I possess all that I need.

YAHUAH keeps company with me.

He is both friend and guide.

He navigates my journey.

He conducts me to wellsprings of consolation.


In a relaxed, recumbent position,

Among tender, green herbs,

I lie down and find rest.

I reside in comely, pleasant places.

As a sparkling watercourse flows past,

I sigh with contentment:

I am sustained,

I am protected,

I am safe.

He recovers and refreshes

My nephesh, my vitality.


The Self-Existent One guides me

In the way of tsedek

For the purpose of His honor

And for His character’s sake.

Yes, even though, as I walk,

I am chased,



Carried away

Under a narrow gorge

By the death-shadow,

I will fear neither adversity nor affliction.


His tribe,

His staff,

His scepter

Will support and console me.


In front of the bound ones,

Right in the faces

Of those who treated me with enmity,

YAHUAH arranges the king’s table.

Seraphim and cherubim watch

From a distance

As, conspicuously,

He furnishes a feast.

He anoints my head,

Washing away ashes,

Pouring oil.

My cup,

My portion,

My inheritance

Is both wealthy and satisfying.

Good, indeed only the best,

Shall chase me down and overtake me.

Kindness shall pursue me,

From the sunrise to the sunset

Of my life,

And I will be established

In the house,

In the family

Of the Self-Existent One, AHAYAH,

For this time

And further than I can see or perceive,

To the edge of the horizon

And beyond.

Pamela Glasgow

The Psalm Project represents my desire for a deeper understanding of the Word of YAHUAH. It is not a mechanical translation, a one-word-for-word exchange from Hebrew to English. We have those. This is is a lyrical adaptation of the many possibilities hidden in the Hebrew, arranged with consideration for the poetic and musical intent of the original writer. I pray you are as enriched in the reading as I was in the transcribing.

Miss Rivqah is born!

AND no, she wasn’t born standing up. That would be totally amazing if true. Rivqah is nearly 4 months old now, her birthdate being on July 7, and as you can see, she loves standing with assistance. Sarah and I are in our 40’s, have been married for over 20 years, and never thought we could have any more children. Rivqah decided to surprise us when we least expected it, and here she is, tada! all smiles. Yahuah is truly amazing. Expect plenty more of her in upcoming announcements. I may throw her in when you least suspect it. You can read her birth story here.

Miss Rivqah.

Rebecca L. Gould: A growing family at TUC!

IN my last newsletter I made mention of Rebecca L. Gould without ever giving a photo reveal. Well, here she is. The lovely Rebecca. Rebecca came to TUC during the summer of 2021 after following the breadcrumb trail from Rob Skiba and Nephelim research and soon thereafter began following the Torah. She has been an enormous help to the TUC ministry ever since that time, editing books for publication as well as running the podcast and administrating the TUC community, among other  tasks. ‘The Earth Not a Globe Review: Volume I’ and ‘The Legends of the Jews: Volumes I-IV’ would not have happened without her. 

New Article Archives

A GREAT deal many of my readers have been asking for a single page where my articles can be accessed and I don’t blame them. The sheer volume has become dizzying. Just know that the list provided here is far from complete, though I do say it’s a good start. It’s not that I’m holding anything back. I have been attempting to convert my catalogue of work into pdf files over the last so many months and that is no small easy task. The greater bulk is published all throughout my website. You’ll have to fish for them until I get around to it.
