|[A Psalm of David.]|
|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?
|Voice of the Lord in the Storm. Psalm 27(v26)|
|When evildoers assail me, uttering slanders against me, |
my adversaries and foes, they shall stumble and fall.
|Though a host encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; |
though war arise against me, yet I will be confident.
|One thing have I 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 inquire in his temple.
|For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; |
he will conceal me under the cover of his tent, he will set me high upon a rock.
|And now my head shall be lifted up |
above my enemies round about me;
and I will offer in his tent sacrifices with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make melody to the LORD.
|Hear, O LORD, when I cry aloud, |
be gracious to me and answer me!
|Thou hast said, "Seek ye my face." |
My heart says to thee, "Thy face, LORD, do I seek."
|Hide not thy face from me. |
Turn not thy servant away in anger,
|For my father and my mother have forsaken me, |
but the LORD will take me up.
|Teach me thy way, O LORD; |
and lead me on a level path because of my enemies.
|Give me not up to the will of my adversaries; |
for false witnesses have risen against me, and 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;
yea, wait for the Lord!
