Douay-Rheims (RHE) New International Version (NIV)
1 (26-1) <The psalm of David before he was anointed.> The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? The Lord is the protector 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 (26-2) Whilst the wicked draw near against me, to eat my flesh. My enemies that trouble me, have themselves been weakened, and have fallen. 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 (26-3) If armies in camp should stand to gether against me, my heart shall not fear. If a battle should rise up 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 (26-4) One thing I have asked of the Lord, this will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life. That I may see the delight of the Lord, and may visit 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 (26-5) For he hath hidden me in his tabernacle; in the day of evils, he hath protected me in the secret place of his tabernacle. 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 (26-6) He hath exalted me upon a rock: and now he hath lifted up my head above my enemies. I have gone round, and have offered up in his tabernacle a sacrifice of jubilation: I will sing, and recite a psalm to the Lord. 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 (26-7) Hear, O Lord, my voice, with which I have cried to thee: have mercy on me and hear me. 7 Hear my voice when I call, O LORD; be merciful to me and answer me.
8 (26-8) My heart hath said to thee: My face hath sought thee: thy face, O Lord, will I still seek. 8 My heart says of you, "Seek his face!" Your face, LORD, I will seek.
9 (26-9) Turn not away thy face from me; decline not in thy wrath from thy servant. Be thou my helper, forsake me not; do not thou despise me, O God my Saviour. 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 (26-10) For my father and my mother have left me: but the Lord hath taken me up. 10 Though my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will receive me.
11 (26-11) Set me, O Lord, a law in thy way, and guide me in the right path, because of my enemies. 11 Teach me your way, O LORD; lead me in a straight path because of my oppressors.
12 (26-12) Deliver me not over to the will of them that trouble me; for unjust witnesses have risen up against me; and iniquity hath lied to itself. 12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes, for false witnesses rise up against me, breathing out violence.
13 (26-13) I believe to see the good things of the Lord 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 (26-14) Expect the Lord, do manfully, and let thy heart take courage, and wait thou for the Lord. 14 Wait for the LORD; be strong and take heart and wait for the LORD.
