The Psalm Project: Psalm 3

by | Sep 10, 2021

Psalm 3

Adapted from a Mizmor of David

When he bolted from before the face of Absalom, his son


YAHUAH mah-rabab tsar


O, Self-Existent One—


How my adversary has increased!

Like raindrops,



Growing into a flood,

Multiplying into thousands, nay!

Ten thousands!

They pitch tents against me.

They rear up offenses.

They press me into a narrow place.




I am shot through with arrows!


They crowd together,

Rank upon rank,

Plenteous in number—

Elders, captains, mighty ones—

They boast,

They publish reports,

They declare to my nephesh,

To my vitality,

To the living, breathing essence

Of my self:

There is no Yasha(Yeshua) in ALOHIM!


[Selah: A Dramatic Pause in the Music]



Shield of scaly crocodile hide,

The Defense and Splendor of Israel,

You exalted my head.


I proclaimed

The Self-Existent One,

The Eternal


With my voice.

He heeded.

He answered.

He sang in response

From the Sacred Place,

His Set-Apart Mountain.


[Selah: A Dramatic Pause in the Music]


Like one ravished by a lover,

I cast myself down, exhausted;

I slept.

Startled, I woke

To keep watch.

YAHUAH supported me

When I wavered.


I will not dread,

Even if the thousands

Become ten thousands

And these multiply into millions,

Even if troops, nations, peoples,

Array themselves

To encircle my dwelling

Or encompass me about

Like an angry horde.


Arise, YAHUAH!

Confirm by decree,






Smite these murderers!

Wound my foes

Upon the jawbone,

Crush and destroy

The front teeth

Of the morally wrong,

The guilty and condemned.



Self-Existent One,


Upon the tribes of Israel

Your prosperity!


[Selah: A Dramatic Cessation of the Music]

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.
