Psalm 27
My Stronghold
Of David.
1The Lord is my light and my salvation —
whom should I fear?#Is 60:20; Mc 7:8
The Lord is the stronghold of my life —
whom should I dread?#Ps 28:8; 118:6
2When evildoers came against me to devour my flesh,#Ps 14:4
my foes and my enemies stumbled and fell.#Ps 9:3
3Though an army deploys against me,
my heart will not be afraid;
though a war breaks out against me,
I will still be confident.#Ps 3:6
4I have asked one thing from the Lord;
it is what I desire:
to dwell in the house of the Lord
all the days of my life,#Ps 23:6; 26:8
gazing on the beauty of the Lord#Ps 93:5
and seeking him in his temple.#Mal 3:1
5For he will conceal me in his shelter
in the day of adversity;
he will hide me under the cover of his tent;
he will set me high on a rock.#Ps 31:20; 91:1; Is 25:4
6Then my head will be high
above my enemies around me;#Ps 3:3
I will offer sacrifices in his tent with shouts of joy.#Ps 54:6; 116:17
I will sing and make music to the Lord.#Eph 5:19
7 Lord, hear my voice when I call;
be gracious to me and answer me.#Ps 4:3; 30:10
8My heart says this about you:
“Seek#27:8 The command is pl in Hb his face.”
Lord, I will seek your face.#Ps 24:6; 105:4
9Do not hide your face from me;#Ps 69:17; 102:2; 143:7
do not turn your servant away in anger.#Ps 6:1
You have been my helper;#Ps 40:17
do not leave me or abandon me,
God of my salvation.
10Even if my father and mother abandon me,
the Lord cares for me.#Ps 37:28; 94:14
11Because of my adversaries,
show me your way, Lord,
and lead me on a level path.#Ps 25:4; 26:12
12Do not give me over to the will of my foes,
for false witnesses rise up against me,
breathing violence.#Ps 35:11; 41:2; Mt 26:59–60
13I am certain that I will see the Lord’s goodness
in the land of the living.#Ex 33:19; Ps 116:9; 142:5
14Wait for the Lord;
be strong, and let your heart be courageous.#Jos 1:6
Wait for the Lord.#Ps 37:34; 130:5
