The LORD is my 1light and my 2salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the a3defense of my life; 4Whom shall I dread?
When evildoerscame upon me to 5devour my flesh, My adversaries and my enemies, they 6stumbled and fell.
3Though a 7hostencampagainst me, My heart will not fear; Thoughwarariseagainst me, In spite of this I bshall be 8confident.
49Onething I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek: That I may 10dwell in the house of the LORDall the days of my life, To behold11the cbeauty of the LORD And to d12meditate in His temple.
For in the 13day of trouble He will 14conceal me in His etabernacle; In the secretplace of His tent He will 15hide me; He will 16lift me up on a rock.
And now17my head will be lifted up above my enemiesaround me, And I will offer in His tent18sacrificesfwith shouts of joy; I will 19sing, yes, I will singpraises to the LORD.
720Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice, And be gracious to me and 21answer me.
When You said, "22Seek My face," my heartsaid to You, "Your face, O LORD, 23I shall seek."
924Do not hide Your face from me, Do not turn Your servantaway in 25anger; You have been26my help; 27Do not abandon me nor28forsake me, O God of my salvation!
10gFor my father and 29my mother have forsaken me, But 30the LORD will take me up.
1131Teach me Your way, O LORD, And lead me in a 32levelpathBecause of hmy foes.
Do not deliver me over to the i33desire of my adversaries, For 34falsewitnesses have risen against me, And such as 35breathe out violence.
13jI would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the 36goodness of the LORD In the 37land of the living.
1438Wait for the LORD; Be 39strong and let your hearttakecourage; Yes, wait for the LORD.
