The Lord is bthe strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?
They stumbled and fell.
3 eThough an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear:
Though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
4 fOne thing have I desired of the Lord, that will I seek after;
That I may gdwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life,
5 For in the time of trouble he shall ihide me in his pavilion:
In the secret of his tabernacle shall he ihide me;
He shall jset me up upon a rock.
6 And now shall kmine 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 lHear, O Lord, when I cry with my voice:
lHave mercy also upon me, and answer me.
Thy face, Lord, will I seek.
9 nHide not thy face far from me;
Put not thy servant away in anger:
Thou hast been my help; leave me not,
Neither forsake me, oO God of my salvation.
10 When my father and pmy mother forsake me,
Then the Lord †will take me up.
11 qTeach me thy way, O Lord,
12 rDeliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies:
To see the goodness of the Lord uin the land of the living.
14 xWait on the Lord:
yBe of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart:
Wait, I say, on the Lord.
