The Psalms

The LORD Is My Light and My Salvation
A Psalm of David.

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.
