The LORD is my a light and my salvation;
Whom shall I fear?
The b LORD is the strength of my life;
Of whom shall I be afraid?
When the wicked came against me
To c eat up my flesh,
My enemies and foes,
They stumbled and fell.
d Though an army may encamp against me,
My heart shall not fear;
Though war may rise against me,
In this I will be confident.
e One thing I have desired of the LORD,
That will I seek:
That I may f 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.
For g in the time of trouble
He shall hide me in His pavilion;
In the secret place of His tabernacle
He shall hide me;
He shall h set me high upon a rock.
And now i my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me;
Therefore I will offer sacrifices of joy in His tabernacle;
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD.
Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice!
Have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
When You said, "Seek My face,"
My heart said to You, "Your face, LORD, I will seek."
j Do not hide Your face from me;
Do not turn Your servant away in anger;
You have been my help;
Do not leave me nor forsake me,
O God of my salvation.
k When my father and my mother forsake me,
Then the LORD will take care of me.
l Teach me Your way, O LORD,
And lead me in a smooth path, because of my enemies.
Do not deliver me to the will of my adversaries;
For m false witnesses have risen against me,
And such as breathe out violence.
I would have lost heart, unless I had believed
That I would see the goodness of the LORD
n In the land of the living.
o Wait on the LORD;
Be of good courage,
And He shall strengthen your heart;
Wait, I say, on the LORD!

For You will light my lamp; The LORD my God will enlighten my darkness.
For the LORD God is a sun and shield; The LORD will give grace and glory; No good thing will He withhold From those who walk uprightly.
The sun shall no longer be your light by day, Nor for brightness shall the moon give light to you; But the LORD will be to you an everlasting light, And your God your glory.
Your sun shall no longer go down, Nor shall your moon withdraw itself; For the LORD will be your everlasting light, And the days of your mourning shall be ended.
Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; When I fall, I will arise; When I sit in darkness, The LORD will be a light to me.
The LORD is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation; He is my God, and I will praise Him; My father's God, and I will exalt Him.
In God is my salvation and my glory; The rock of my strength, And my refuge, is in God.
The LORD is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation.
Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid; 'For YAH, the LORD, is my strength and song; He also has become my salvation.'
O LORD, be gracious to us; We have waited for You. Be their arm every morning, Our salvation also in the time of trouble.
Have all the workers of iniquity no knowledge, Who eat up my people as they eat bread, And do not call on the LORD?
I will not be afraid of ten thousands of people Who have set themselves against me all around.
LORD, I have loved the habitation of Your house, And the place where Your glory dwells.
Blessed is the man You choose, And cause to approach You, That he may dwell in Your courts. We shall be satisfied with the goodness of Your house, Of Your holy temple.
And this woman was a widow of about eighty-four years, who did not depart from the temple, but served God with fastings and prayers night and day.
You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence From the plots of man; You shall keep them secretly in a pavilion From the strife of tongues.
He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High Shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, Out of the miry clay, And set my feet upon a rock, And established my steps.
But You, O LORD, are a shield for me, My glory and the One who lifts up my head.
And do not hide Your face from Your servant, For I am in trouble; Hear me speedily.
Answer me speedily, O LORD; My spirit fails! Do not hide Your face from me, Lest I be like those who go down into the pit.
Can a woman forget her nursing child, And not have compassion on the son of her womb? Surely they may forget, Yet I will not forget you.
Show me Your ways, O LORD; Teach me Your paths.
Teach me Your way, O LORD; I will walk in Your truth; Unite my heart to fear Your name.
Teach me, O LORD, the way of Your statutes, And I shall keep it to the end.
