Psalm 27:1-6

A Psalm of Fearless Trust in God.

1 The LORD is my 1light and my 2salvation; Whom shall I fear? The LORD is the 3defense of my life; 4Whom shall I dread?
2 When evildoers came upon me to 5devour my flesh, My adversaries and my enemies, they 6stumbled and fell.
3 Though a 7host encamp against me, My heart will not fear; Though war arise against me, In spite of this I shall be 8confident.
4 9One thing I have asked from the LORD, that I shall seek: That I may 10dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, To behold 11the beauty of the LORD And to 12meditate in His temple.
5 For in the 13day of trouble He will 14conceal me in His tabernacle; In the secret place of His tent He will 15hide me; He will 16lift me up on a rock.
6 And now 17my head will be lifted up above my enemies around me, And I will offer in His tent 18sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will 19sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD.
