Salmos 27

1 Jehovah is my light and my salvation. Whom shall I fear? Jehovah is the stronghold of my life. Who is there to be afraid of?

2 Evildoers accosted me to tear me to pieces. My opponents and enemies stumbled and fell.

3 Even though an army sets up camp against me, my heart will not be afraid. Even though a war breaks out against me, I will trust in Jehovah.

4 I have asked one thing from Jehovah. This I will seek: to live in the house of Jehovah all the days of my life, to look at Jehovah’s beauty and search for an answer in his temple.

5 He hides me in his shelter when there is trouble. He keeps me hidden in his tent. He puts me high on a rock.

6 Now my head will be lifted up above my enemies who surround me. I will offer sacrifices with shouts of joy in his tent. I will sing, yes I will sing praises to Jehovah.

7 Hear O Jehovah when I cry with my voice. Be gracious to me and answer me.

8 You said: »Seek my face look for memy presence.« My heart said to you, »O Jehovah, I will look for you.«

9 Do not hide your face from me. Do not angrily turn me away. You have been my help. Do not leave me! Do not abandon me, O God of my salvation!

10 Even if my father and mother abandon forsake me, Jehovah will take care of me.

11 Teach me your way, O Jehovah. Lead me on a level path because of my enemies.

12 Do not surrender me to the will of my opponents. False witnesses have risen against me. They breathe out violence.

13 I believe that I will see the goodness of Jehovah in this world of the living.

14 Hope waitexpecttrust in Jehovah and be strong. Let your heart be courageous. Yes, hope in Jehovah.
