Psalms 27 (asv)
A Psalm of David.
Whom shall I fear?
Of whom shall I be afraid?
Even mine adversaries and my foes, they stumbled and fell.
27:3Though a host should encamp against me,
Though war should rise against me,
Even then will I be confident.
27:4One thing have I asked of Jehovah, that will I seek after;
And to inquire in his temple.
In the covert of his tabernacle will he hide me;
He will lift me up upon a rock.
I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto Jehovah.
Have mercy also upon me, and answer me.
27:8When thou saidst, Seek ye my face;
My heart said unto thee,
Thy face, Jehovah, will I seek.
27:9Hide not thy face from me;
Put not thy servant away in anger:
Thou hast been my help;
27:10When my father and my mother forsake me,
Then Jehovah will take me up.
And lead me in a plain path,
Because of mine enemies.
27:12Deliver me not over unto the will of mine adversaries:
For false witnesses are risen up against me,
And such as breathe out cruelty.
In the land of the living.
