[A Psalm] of David.
The LORD [is] my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear?4 the LORD [is] the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?4
When the wicked,56 [even] mine enemies and my foes,6 came2 upon me to eat up2 my flesh, they stumbled1 and fell.1
Though an host should encamp4 against me, my heart shall not fear:4 though war should rise4 against me, in this [will] I [be] confident.6
One [thing] have I desired1 of the LORD, that will I seek17 after; that I may dwell2 in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold2 the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire15 in his temple.
For in the time of trouble he shall hide4 me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide55 me; he shall set me up34 upon a rock.
And now shall mine head be lifted up4 above mine enemies6 round about me: therefore will I offer4 in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy; I will sing,4 yea, I will sing praises17 unto the LORD.
Hear,3 O LORD, [when] I cry4 with my voice: have mercy3 also upon me, and answer3 me.
[When thou saidst], Seek16 ye my face; my heart said1 unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek.17
Hide55 not thy face [far] from me; put not thy servant away55 in anger: thou hast been my help; leave4 me not, neither forsake4 me, O God of my salvation.
When my father and my mother forsake1 me, then the LORD will take me up.4
Teach54 me thy way, O LORD, and lead3 me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.6
Deliver4 me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up1 against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.
[I had fainted], unless I had believed52 to see2 the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.
Wait16 on the LORD: be of good courage,3 and he shall strengthen55 thine heart: wait,16 I say, on the LORD.
