1 The Lord is my alight and my bsalvation; whom shall I cfear? the Lord is the dstrength 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 adwell in the bhouse of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the cbeauty of the Lord, and to dinquire in his temple.
5 For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his apavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a brock.
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.
8 When thou saidst, aSeek ye my bface; 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 aTeach me thy way, O Lord, and blead me in a plain path, because of mine enemies.
12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for afalse witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out bcruelty.
13 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the aland of the living.
14 aWait on the Lord: be of good bcourage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: cwait, I say, on the Lord.
