The LORD is my light and my salvation. Should I fear anyone? The LORD is a fortress protecting my life. Should I be frightened of anything?
When evildoers come at me trying to eat me up— it's they, my foes and my enemies, who stumble and fall!
If an army camps against me, my heart won't be afraid. If war comes up against me, I will continue to trust in this:
I have asked one thing from the LORD— it's all I seek— to live in the LORD's house all the days of my life, seeing the LORD's beauty and constantly adoring his temple.
Because he will shelter me in his own dwelling during troubling times; he will hide me in a secret place in his own tent; he will set me up high, safe on a rock.
Now my head is higher than the enemies surrounding me, and I will offer sacrifices in God's tent— sacrifices with shouts of joy! I will sing and praise the LORD.
