Psalm 27
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?
When evildoers advance against me
to eat up my flesh,
my adversaries and my foes, *
it is they who stumble and fall.
Though an army encamp against me, *
my heart shall not fear;
Though war should arise against me, *
even then I will be confident.
One thing I have asked of the LORD, *
that will I seek after:
That I may dwell in the house of the LORD
all the days of my life, *
to behold the beauty of the LORD
and to seek him in his temple.
For in the day of trouble he will hide me in his shelter; *
he will conceal me in the cover of his tent;
he will set me high upon a rock.
And now my head shall be lifted up *
above my enemies all around me,
And I will offer in his tent sacrifices of shouts of joy; *
I will sing and make music to the LORD.
Hear my voice, O LORD, when I cry aloud; *
have mercy on me and answer me!
You have said, “Seek my face.” *
My heart says to you,
“Your face, LORD, I will seek.”
Hide not your face from me,
nor turn your servant away in anger. *
You have been my help;
do not abandon me nor forsake me
O God of my salvation!
Though my father and my mother forsake me, *
the LORD will take me in.
Teach me your way, O LORD, *
and lead me on a level path
because of my enemies.
Deliver me not into the will of my adversaries; *
for false witnesses have risen against me;
they breathe out violence.
I believe that I shall see the goodness of the LORD *
in the land of the living!
Wait for the LORD; *
be strong and let your heart take courage;
wait for the LORD!
