Psalm 27

1 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 a 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 inquire 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.
