Psalm 27

Psalms: 27

A Psalm of David.

Psalm of Praise.  Psalm 27(v26)

1The 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?

2When evildoers assail me, uttering slanders against me,
my adversaries and foes, they shall stumble and fall.

3Though a host encamp against me, my heart shall not fear;
though war arise against me, yet I will be confident.

4One 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.

5For 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.

6And 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.

7Hear, O LORD, when I cry aloud,
be gracious to me and answer me!
8Thou hast said, "Seek ye my face."
My heart says to thee, "Thy face, LORD, do I seek."
9Hide not thy face from me.

Turn not thy servant away in anger,
thou who hast been my help.
Cast me not off, forsake me not, O God of my salvation!
10For my father and my mother have forsaken me,
but the LORD will take me up.

11Teach me thy way, O LORD;
and lead me on a level path because of my enemies.
12Give me not up to the will of my adversaries;
for false witnesses have risen against me, and they breathe out violence.

13I believe that I shall see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living!
14Wait for the Lord;
Be strong, and let your heart take courage;
yea, wait for the Lord!
