Psalm 27

The Lord Is My Light and My Salvation

Of David.

1 The LORD is my 1light and my 2salvation; 3whom shall I fear? The LORD is the strongholda of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When evildoers assail me to 4eat up my flesh, my adversaries and foes, it is they who stumble and fall.
3 5Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yetb I will be confident.
4 6One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may 7dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon 8the beauty of the LORD and to inquirec in his temple.
5 For he will 9hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent; he will 10lift me high upon a rock.
6 And now my 11head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me, and I will offer in his tent sacrifices with shouts of 12joy; 13I will sing and make melody to the LORD.
7 14Hear, O LORD, when I cry aloud; be gracious to me and answer me!
8 You have said, 15"Seekd my face." My heart says to you, "Your face, LORD, do I seek."e
9 16Hide not your face from me. Turn not your servant away in anger, O you who have been my help. Cast me not off; forsake me not, 17O God of my salvation!
10 For 18my father and my mother have forsaken me, but the LORD will 19take me in.
11 20Teach me your way, O LORD, and lead me on 21a level path because of my enemies.
12 22Give me not up to the will of my adversaries; for 23false witnesses have risen against me, and they 24breathe out violence.
13 I believef that I shall look upon 25the goodness of the LORD in 26the land of the living!
14 27Wait for the LORD; 28be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the LORD!
