Psalm 27

The LORD Is My Salvation

Of David.

1The LORD is my light and my salvation—

whom shall I fear?

The LORD is the stronghold of my life—

whom shall I dread?

2 When the wicked came upon me to devour my flesh,

my enemies and foes stumbled and fell.

3 Though an army encamps around me,

my heart will not fear;

though a war breaks out against me,

I will keep my trust.

4 One thing I have asked of the LORD;

this is what I desire:

to dwell in the house of the LORD

all the days of my life,

to gaze on the beauty of the LORD

and seek Him in His temple.

5 For in the day of trouble

He will hide me in His shelter;

He will conceal me under the cover of His tent;

He will set me high upon a rock.

6 Then my head will be held high

above my enemies around me.

At His tabernacle I will offer sacrifices with shouts of joy;

I will sing and make music to the LORD.

7 Hear, O LORD, my voice when I call;

be merciful and answer me.

8 My heart said, “Seek His face.”

Your face, O LORD, I will seek.

9 Hide not Your face from me,

nor turn away Your servant in anger.

You have been my helper;

do not leave me or forsake me,

O God of my salvation.

10 Though my father and mother forsake me,

the LORD will receive me.

11 Teach me Your way, O LORD,

and lead me on a level path,

because of my oppressors.

12 Do not hand me over to the will of my foes,

for false witnesses rise up against me,

breathing out violence.

13 Still I am certain to see

the goodness of the LORD

in the land of the living.

14 Wait patiently for the LORD;

be strong and courageous.

Wait patiently for the LORD!
