Psalm 27

Of David.

1 The LORD is my light and my salvation—

whom shall I fear?

The LORD is the stronghold of my life—

of whom shall I be afraid?

2 When evil men advance against me

to devour my flesh, [a]

when my enemies and my foes attack me,

they will stumble and fall.



3 Though an army besiege me,

my heart will not fear;

though war break out against me,

even then will I be confident.



4 One thing I ask of the LORD,

this is what I seek:

that I may dwell in the house of the LORD

all the days of my life,

to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD

and to seek him in his temple.



5 For in the day of trouble

he will keep me safe in his dwelling;

he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle

and set me high upon a rock.



6 Then my head will be exalted

above the enemies who surround me;

at his tabernacle will I sacrifice with shouts of joy;

I will sing and make music to the LORD.



7 Hear my voice when I call, O LORD;

be merciful to me and answer me.



8 My heart says of you, "Seek his [b] face!"

Your face, LORD, I will seek.



9 Do not hide your face from me,

do not turn your servant away in anger;

you have been my helper.

Do not reject me or forsake me,

O God my Savior.



10 Though my father and mother forsake me,

the LORD will receive me.



11 Teach me your way, O LORD;

lead me in a straight path

because of my oppressors.



12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,

for false witnesses rise up against me,

breathing out violence.



13 I am still confident of this:

I will see the goodness of the LORD

in the land of the living.



14 Wait for the LORD;

be strong and take heart

and wait for the LORD.


He NEVER FAILS US!!!!!!!!
