Psalm 27

Of David.

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?

2 When the wicked advance against me    to devour[a] me, it is my enemies and my foes    who will stumble and fall. 3Though an army besiege me,    my heart will not fear; though war break out against me,    even then I will be confident.

4 One thing I ask from the LORD,    this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD    all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the LORD    and to seek him in his temple. 5For in the day of trouble    he will keep me safe in his dwelling; he will hide me in the shelter of his sacred tent    and set me high upon a rock.

6Then my head will be exalted    above the enemies who surround me; at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy;    I will sing and make music to the LORD.

7 Hear my voice when I call, LORD;    be merciful to me and answer me. 8 My heart says of you, “Seek his face!”    Your face, LORD, I will seek. 9

11 Teach me your way, LORD;    lead me in a straight path    because of my oppressors…

13 I remain confident of this:    I will see the goodness of the LORD    in the land of the living. 14 Wait for the LORD;    be strong and take heart    and wait for the LORD.
