Psalms 27

An Exuberant Declaration of Faith
A Psalm of David.
1The Lord is my #Ps. 18:28; 84:11; (Is. 60:19, 20; Mic. 7:8)light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The #Ex. 15:2; Ps. 62:7; 118:14; Is. 12:2; 33:2Lord is the strength of my life;
Of whom shall I be afraid?
2When the wicked came against me
To #Ps. 14:4eat up my flesh,
My enemies and foes,
They stumbled and fell.
3#Ps. 3:6Though an army may encamp against me,
My heart shall not fear;
Though war may rise against me,
In this I will be confident.
4#Ps. 26:8; 65:4One thing I have desired of the Lord,
That will I seek:
That I may #Luke 2:37dwell 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.
5For #Ps. 31:20; 91:1in the time of trouble
He shall hide me in His pavilion;
In the secret place of His tabernacle
He shall hide me;
He shall #Ps. 40:2set me high upon a rock.
6And now #Ps. 3:3my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me;
Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle;
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.
7Hear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice!
Have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
8When You said, “Seek My face,”
My heart said to You, “Your face, Lord, I will seek.”
9#Ps. 69:17; 143:7Do not hide Your face from me;
Do not turn Your servant away in anger;
You have been my help;
Do not leave me nor forsake me,
O God of my salvation.
10#Is. 49:15When my father and my mother forsake me,
Then the Lord will take care of me.
11#Ps. 25:4; 86:11; 119:33Teach me Your way, O Lord,
And lead me in a smooth path, because of my enemies.
12Do not deliver me to the will of my adversaries;
For #Deut. 19:18; Ps. 35:11; Matt. 26:60; Mark 14:56; John 19:33false witnesses have risen against me,
And such as breathe out violence.
13I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
That I would see the goodness of the Lord
#Job 28:13; Ps. 52:5; 116:9; 142:5; Is. 38:11; Jer. 11:19; Ezek. 26:20In the land of the living.
14#Ps. 25:3; 37:34; 40:1; 62:5; 130:5; Prov. 20:22; Is. 25:9; (Hab. 2:3)Wait on the Lord;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the Lord!
