The righteous will survive (Ps 17:15-17:15)

“As for me,

I shall behold your face in righteousness.

When I awake,

I shall be satisfied.

I will behold your likeness.”

This psalm ends with the happy thought that the righteous will survive. I will survive. The morning waking is a great divine moment. The night belonged to the evil doers. The morning was the time of God, of Yahweh. In the morning the righteous ones would wake up because they could behold the likeness of Yahweh.
