World English Bible
Psalms, Chapter 27

   1: (By David.) Yahweh is my light and my salvation. Whom shall I fear? Yahweh is the strength of my life. Of whom shall I be afraid?
   2: When evil-doers came at me to eat up my flesh, Even my adversaries and my foes, they stumbled and fell.
   3: Though a host should encamp against me, My heart shall not fear. Though war should rise against me, Even then I will be confident.
   4: One thing I have asked of Yahweh, that I will seek after, That I may dwell in the house of Yahweh all the days of my life, To see Yahweh's beauty, And to inquire in his temple.
   5: For in the day of trouble he will keep me secretly in his pavilion. In the covert of his tent he will hide me. He will lift me up on a rock.
   6: Now my head wille be lifted up above my enemies around me. I will offer sacrifices of joy in his tent. I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to Yahweh.
   7: Hear, Yahweh, when I cry with my voice. Have mercy also on me, and answer me.
   8: When you said, "Seek my face," My heart said to you, "I will seek your face, Yahweh."
   9: Don't hide your face from me. Don't put your servant away in anger. You have been my help. Don't abandon me, Neither forsake me, God of my salvation.
   10: When my father and my mother forsake me, Then Yahweh will take me up.
   11: Teach me your way, Yahweh. Lead me in a straight path, because of my enemies.
   12: Don't deliver me over to the desire of my adversaries, For false witnesses have risen up against me, Such as breathe out cruelty.
   13: I am still confident of this: I will see the goodness of Yahweh in the land of the living.
   14: Wait for Yahweh. Be strong, and let your heart take courage. Yes, wait for Yahweh.
