The Darby Translation (DBY) New International Version (NIV)
1 {[A Psalm] of David.} Jehovah is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? Jehovah 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, mine adversaries and mine enemies, came upon me to eat up my flesh, 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 a host encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; if war rise against me, in this will I 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 Jehovah, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of Jehovah all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of Jehovah, and to inquire [of him] 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 evil he will hide me in his pavilion; in the secret of his tent will he keep me concealed: he will set me high upon 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 And now shall my head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me; and I will offer in his tent sacrifices of shouts of joy: I will sing, yea, I will sing psalms unto Jehovah. 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, Jehovah; with my voice do I call; be gracious unto me, and answer me. 7 Hear my voice when I call, O LORD; be merciful to me and answer me.
8 My heart said for thee, Seek ye my face. Thy face, O Jehovah, will I seek. 8 My heart says of you, "Seek his face!" Your face, LORD, I will seek.
9 Hide not thy face from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; cast me not off, neither forsake me, O 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 For had my father and my mother forsaken me, then had Jehovah taken me up. 10 Though my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will receive me.
11 Teach me thy way, Jehovah, and lead me in an even path, because of mine enemies. 11 Teach me your way, O LORD; lead me in a straight path because of my oppressors.
12 Deliver me not over to the will of mine adversaries; for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out violence. 12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes, for false witnesses rise up against me, breathing out violence.
13 Unless I had believed to see the goodness of Jehovah 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 Jehovah; be strong and let thy heart take courage: yea, wait for Jehovah. 14 Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.
