Trust in God

1Of David

A

I

The LORD is my light and my salvation; c Pss 18, 29; 36, 10; 43, 3; Is 10, 17; Mi 7, 8 . whom do I fear? The LORD is my life's refuge; of whom am I afraid? 2When evildoers come at me to devour my flesh, d Ps 14, 4 . * These my enemies and foes themselves stumble and fall. 3Though an army encamp against me, my heart does not fear; Though war be waged against me, even then do I trust.

II

4One thing I ask of the LORD; this I seek: To dwell in the LORD's house all the days of my life, To gaze on the LORD's beauty, to visit his temple. e Pss 23, 6; 61, 5 . 5For God will hide me in his shelter in time of trouble, f Ps 31, 21 . Will conceal me in the cover of his tent; and set me high upon a rock. 6Even now my head is held high above my enemies on every side! I will offer in his tent sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing and chant praise to the LORD.

B

I

7Hear my voice, LORD, when I call; have mercy on me and answer me. 8“Come,” says my heart, “seek God's face”;* your face, LORD, do I seek! g Ps 24, 6; Hos 5, 15 . 9Do not hide your face from me; do not repel your servant in anger. You are my help; do not cast me off; do not forsake me, God my savior! 10Even if my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will take me in. h Is 49, 15 .

II

11 LORD, show me your way; lead me on a level path because of my enemies. i Pss 25, 4; 86, 11 . 12Do not abandon me to the will of my foes; malicious and lying witnesses have risen against me. 13But I believe I shall enjoy the LORD's goodness in the land of the living. j Ps 116, 9; Is 38, 11 . * 14Wait for the LORD, take courage; be stouthearted, wait for the LORD!
