Psalms 27
GNV
27
1A Psalme of David. The Lord is my light and my saluation, whom shall I feare? the Lord is the strength of my life, of whome shall I be afraide? 2When the wicked, euen mine enemies and my foes came vpon mee to eate vp my flesh; they stumbled and fell. 3Though an hoste pitched against me, mine heart should not be afraide: though warre be raised against me, I will trust in this. 4One thing haue I desired of the Lord, that I will require, euen that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the dayes of my life, to beholde the beautie of the Lord, and to visite his Temple. 5For in the time of trouble hee shall hide mee in his Tabernacle: in the secrete place of his pauillion shall he hide me, and set me vp vpon a rocke. 6And nowe shall hee lift vp mine head aboue mine enemies rounde about mee: therefore wil I offer in his Tabernacle sacrifices of ioy: I wil sing and praise the Lord. 7Hearken vnto my voyce, O Lord, when I crie: haue mercie also vpon mee and heare mee. 8When thou saidest, Seeke ye my face, mine heart answered vnto thee, O Lord, I will seeke thy face. 9Hide not therefore thy face from mee, nor cast thy seruat away in displeasure: thou hast bene my succour: leaue me not, neither forsake mee, O God of my saluation. 10Though my father and my mother shoulde forsake me, yet the Lord will gather me vp. 11Teache mee thy way, O Lord, and leade me in a right path, because of mine enemies. 12Giue me not vnto the lust of mine aduersaries: for there are false witnesses risen vp against me, and such as speake cruelly. 13I should haue fainted, except I had beleeued to see the goodnes of the Lord in the land of the liuing. 14Hope in the Lord: be strong, and he shall comfort thine heart, and trust in the Lord.
