Complete Jewish Bible (CJB) New International Version (NIV)
1 By David: ADONAI is my light and salvation; whom do I need to fear? ADONAI is the stronghold of my life; of whom should 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 evildoers assailed me to devour my flesh, my adversaries and 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 If an army encamps against me, my heart will not fear; if war breaks out against me, even then I will keep trusting. 3 Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then will I be confident.
4 Just one thing have I asked of ADONAI; only this will I seek: to live in the house of ADONAI all the days of my life, to see the beauty of ADONAI and visit 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 he will conceal me in his shelter on the day of trouble, he will hide me in the folds of his tent, he will set me high 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 Then my head will be lifted up above my surrounding foes, and I will offer in his tent sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing, sing praises to ADONAI. 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 Listen, ADONAI, to my voice when I cry; show favor to me; and answer me. 7 Hear my voice when I call, O LORD; be merciful to me and answer me.
8 "My heart said of you, 'Seek my face.'"Your face, ADONAI, I will seek. 8 My heart says of you, "Seek his face!" Your face, LORD, I will seek.
9 Do not hide your face from me, don't turn your servant away in anger. You are my help; don't abandon me; don't leave me, God my savior. 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 Even though my father and mother have left me, ADONAI will care for me. 10 Though my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will receive me.
11 Teach me your way, ADONAI; lead me on a level 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 give me up to the whims of my foes; for false witnesses have risen against me, also those who are breathing violence. 12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes, for false witnesses rise up against me, breathing out violence.
13 If I hadn't believed that I would see ADONAI's goodness 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 Put your hope in ADONAI, be strong, and let your heart take courage! Yes, put your hope in ADONAI! 14 Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.
