World English Bible (WEB) New International Version (NIV)
1 <> Yahweh is my light and my salvation. Whom shall I fear? Yahweh is the strength of my life. Of whom shall I be afraid? 1 The LORD is my light and my salvation-- whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life-- of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When evil-doers came at me to eat up my flesh, Even my adversaries and my foes, they stumbled and fell. 2 When evil men advance against me to devour my flesh, when my enemies and my foes attack me, they will stumble and fall.
3 Though a host should encamp against me, My heart shall not fear. Though war should rise against me, Even then I will be confident. 3 Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then will I be confident.
4 One thing have I asked of Yahweh, that will I seek after, That I may dwell in the house of Yahweh all the days of my life, To see the beauty of Yahweh, And to inquire in his temple. 4 One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple.
5 For in the day of trouble he will keep me secretly in his pavilion. In the covert of his tent will he hide me. He will lift me up on a rock. 5 For in the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle and set me high upon a rock.
6 Now shall my head be lifted up above my enemies around me. I will offer sacrifices of joy in his tent. I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to Yahweh. 6 Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the LORD.
7 Hear, Yahweh, when I cry with my voice. Have mercy also on me, and answer me. 7 Hear my voice when I call, O LORD; be merciful to me and answer me.
8 When you said, "Seek my face," My heart said to you, "I will seek your face, Yahweh." 8 My heart says of you, "Seek his face!" Your face, LORD, I will seek.
9 Don't hide your face from me. Don't put your servant away in anger. You have been my help. Don't abandon me, neither forsake me, God of my salvation. 9 Do not hide your face from me, do not turn your servant away in anger; you have been my helper. Do not reject me or forsake me, O God my Savior.
10 When my father and my mother forsake me, Then Yahweh will take me up. 10 Though my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will receive me.
11 Teach me your way, Yahweh. Lead me in a straight path, because of my enemies. 11 Teach me your way, O LORD; lead me in a straight path because of my oppressors.
12 Don't deliver me over to the desire of my adversaries, For false witnesses have risen up against me, Such as breathe out cruelty. 12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes, for false witnesses rise up against me, breathing out violence.
13 I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of Yahweh in the land of the living. 13 I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
14 Wait for Yahweh. Be strong, and let your heart take courage. Yes, wait for Yahweh. 14 Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.
