1The Lord is my light and my salvation —
whom should I fear? #Is 60:20Mc 7:8
The Lord is the stronghold of my life —
of whom should I be afraid? #Ps 28:8|NoBook| 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 is not afraid;
though a war breaks out against me,
still I am 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|NoBook| 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|NoBook| 91:1Is 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|NoBook| 116:17
I will sing and make music to the Lord. #Eph 5:19
7Lord, hear my voice when I call;
be gracious to me and answer me. #Ps 4:3|NoBook| 30:10
8My heart says this about You,
“You # You is plural in Hb are to seek My face.”
Lord, I will seek Your face. #Ps 24:6|NoBook| 105:4
9Do not hide Your face from me; #Ps 69:17|NoBook| 102:2|NoBook| 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|NoBook| 94:14
11Because of my adversaries,
show me Your way, Lord,
and lead me on a level path. #Ps 25:4|NoBook| 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|NoBook| 41:2Mt 26:59-60
13I am certain that I will see the Lord’s goodness
in the land of the living. #Ex 33:19Ps 116:9|NoBook| 142:5
14Wait for the Lord;
be strong # Lit Lord; let your heart be strong and courageous. #Jos 1:6
