Chapter 27

1

 

 [A Psalm] of David. The LORD [is] my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD [is] the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? 

 

 


2

 

 When the wicked, [even] mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. 

 

 


3

 

 Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this [will] I [be] confident. 

 

 


4

 

 One [thing] have I desired 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 enquire in his temple. 

 

 


5

 

 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock. 

 

 


6

 

 And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD. 

 

 


7

 

 Hear, O LORD, [when] I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me. 

 

 


8

 

 [When thou saidst], Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek. 

 

 


9

 

 Hide not thy face [far] from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation. 

 

 


10

 

 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up. 

 

 


11

 

 Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies. 

 

 


12

 

 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty. 

 

 


13

 

 [I had fainted], unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living. 

 

 


14

 

 Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.
