A Psalm of Fearless Trust in God.
A Psalm of David.1 The Lord is my a light and my b salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the ▼
▼ Or refuge, d defense of my life;
e Whom shall I dread?
2 When evildoers came upon me to f devour my flesh,
My adversaries and my enemies, they g stumbled and fell.
3 Though a h host encamp against me,
My heart will not fear;
Though war arise against me,
In spite of this I ▼
▼ Lit am confidentshall be j confident.
4 k One thing I have asked from the Lord, that I shall seek:
That I may l dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
To behold m the ▼
▼ Lit delightfulnessbeauty of the Lord
And to ▼
▼ Lit inquire, p meditate in His temple.
5 For in the q day of trouble He will r conceal me in His ▼
▼ Or sheltertabernacle;
In the secret place of His tent He will t hide me;
He will u lift me up on a rock.
6 And now v my head will be lifted up above my enemies around me,
And I will offer in His tent w sacrifices ▼
▼ Lit of shoutswith shouts of joy;
I will y sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.
7 z Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice,
And be gracious to me and aa answer me.
8 When You said ab “Seek My face,” my heart said to You,
“Your face, O Lord ac I shall seek.”
9 ad Do not hide Your face from me,
Do not turn Your servant away in ae anger;
You have been af my help;
ag Do not abandon me nor ah forsake me,
O God of my salvation!
▼ Or If my father...forsake me, Then the LordFor my father and aj my mother have forsaken me,
But ak the Lord will take me up.
11 al Teach me Your way, O Lord,
And lead me in a am level path
Because of ▼
▼ Or those who lie in wait for memy foes.
12 Do not deliver me over to the ▼
▼ Lit soul, ap desire of my adversaries,
For aq false witnesses have risen against me,
And such as ar breathe out violence.
▼ Or Surely I believedI would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the at goodness of the Lord
In the au land of the living.
14 av Wait for the Lord;
Be aw strong and let your heart take courage;
Yes, wait for the Lord.
