Psalm 27

Song of Confidence

 

1 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?

Psalm 27 Song of Confidence

2 When evildoers assail me,

   uttering slanders against me,

my adversaries and foes,

   they shall stumble and fall.

3 Though a host encamp against me,

   my heart shall not fear;

though war arise against me,

   yet I will be confident.

4 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.

5 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.

6 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.

7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud,

   be gracious to me and answer me!

8 Thou hast said, “Seek ye My face.”

   My heart says to Thee,

“Thy face, Lord, do I seek.”

9 Hide 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!

10 For my father and my mother have forsaken me,

   but the Lord will take me up.

11 Teach me Thy way, O Lord;

   and lead me on a level path

   because of my enemies.

12 Give me not up to the will of my adversaries;

   for false witnesses have risen against me,

   and they breathe out violence.

13 I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord

   in the land of the living!

14 Wait for the Lord;

   be strong, and let your heart take courage;

   yea, wait for the Lord!

– Psalm 27
