Bible Text

Psalm 27 (ESV)

Of David.

1 The 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 evildoers assail me

    to eat up my flesh,

  my adversaries and foes,

    it is they who stumble and fall.

3 Though an army encamp against me,

    my heart shall not fear;

  though war arise against me,

    yet I will be confident.

4 One thing have I asked 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 gaze upon the beauty of the Lord

    and to inquire in his temple.

5 For he will hide me in his shelter

    in the day of trouble;

  he will conceal me under the cover of his tent;

    he will lift me high upon a rock.

6 And now my head shall be lifted up

    above my enemies all around me,

  and I will offer in his tent

    sacrifices with shouts of joy;

  I will sing and make melody to the Lord.

7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud;

    be gracious to me and answer me!

8 You have said, “Seek my face.”

  My heart says to you,

    “Your face, Lord, do I seek.”

9     Hide not your face from me.

    Turn not your servant away in anger,

    O you who have been my help.

    Cast me not off; forsake me not,

    O God of my salvation!

10 For my father and my mother have forsaken me,

    but the Lord will take me in.

11 Teach me your way, O Lord,

    and lead me on a level path

    because of my enemies.

12 Give me not up to the will of my adversaries;

    for false witnesses have risen against me,

    and they breathe out violence.

13 I believe that I shall look upon the goodness of the Lord

    in the land of the living!

14 Wait for the Lord;

    be strong, and let your heart take courage;

    wait for the Lord!
