The Lord Is My Light And My Salvation

    Psalms 27
    King James Version

    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 enquire 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.​
    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.​

    A Psalm Of Fearless Trust In God

    About Author

    Trusting and Obeying the God of Truth: Loving others within the limits that truth allows. "...not as though I wrote to thee a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it." —2 John 1:5-6
