    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!
