Psalm 27:1-6 New International Version

The LORD Is My Light and My Salvation

27 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 the wicked advance against me to devour[1] me, it is my enemies and my foes who will stumble and fall. 3  Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then I will be confident. 4  One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on 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 sacred tent and set me high upon a rock. 6  Then my head will be exalted above the enemies who surround me; at his sacred tent I will sacrifice with shouts of joy; I will sing and make music to the Lord.
