Seek the Face of The LORD
A psalm to David; before his anointing.1 The lord is my illumination and my deliverer, in whom shall I fear? The lord is the defender of my life, from whom shall I be timid? 2 In the approaching against me by the ones inflicting evil to devour my flesh, the ones afflicting me, and my enemies, they weakened and fell. 3 If [2should deploy 3against 4me 1a camp], [2shall not 3fear 1my heart]. If [2should rise up 3against 4me 1war], in this I will be hopeful. 4 One thing I asked of the lord, this I shall seek -- for me to dwell in the house of the lord all the days of my life; for me to view the delightfulness of the lord, and to visit [2temple 1his holy]. 5 For he hides me in his tent; in a day of my evils he sheltered me in concealment of his tent; in a rock he raised me up high. 6 And now behold, he raised up high my head over my enemies. I encircled and sacrificed in his tent a sacrifice of praise and of a shout; I shall sing and strum to the lord. 7 Hear, O lord, my voice which I cried out! Show mercy on me, and hear me! 8 To you [2said 1my heart], I seek the lord, I sought after you with my face. Your face, O lord, I shall seek. 9 You should not turn your face from me, and you should not turn aside in anger from your servant. [2my helper 1Become]! Do not curse me to be far away, and do not abandon me, and do not overlook me, O God my deliverer! 10 For my father and my mother abandoned me, but the lord took me to himself. 11 Establish the law for me, O lord, in your way! And guide me in [2road 1the straight], because of my enemies! 12 Do not deliver me into the souls of ones afflicting me! For [3rose up against 4me 2witnesses 1unjust]; for [2lied 1unjustness] to herself. 13 I trust to behold the good things of the lord in the land of the living. 14 Wait on the lord! Be manly and fortify your heart, and wait on the lord!
