Psalm 27


1: The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

2: When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.

3: Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.

4: One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell 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.

5: For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock.

6: And now shall mine head be lifted up above mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle

sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.

7: Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me.

Psalm 27:8 - When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek.

9: Hide not thy face far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.

10: When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will take me up.

11: Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.

12: Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.

13: I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.

14: Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.


not fearing because the LORD is my light

not fearing because the LORD is my salvation

not fearing because the LORD is the strength of my life

with foes and enemies that stumble and fall

dwelling in the house of the LORD

beholding the beauty of the LORD

inquiring in his temple

confident that God will hide me in his pavilion in times of trouble

hidden by God in the secret of his tabernacle

set up upon a rock by God

with my head lifted above my foes round about me

offering sacrifices of joy in God’s tabernacle

singing praising unto the LORD

seeking the LORD’s face

taken up by the LORD when all others forsake me

taught by God and led in a plain path

not being delivered over to the will of my enemies

waiting on the LORD

of good courage with a strengthen heart
