Psalm 27

Of David.

The Lord is my lights and my salvationt

whom shall I fear?

The Lord is the strongholdu of my life—

of whom shall I be afraid?v

When the wicked advance against me

to devoura me,

it is my enemies and my foes

who will stumble and fall.w

Though an army besiege me,

my heart will not fear;x

though war break out against me,

even then I will be confident.y

One thingz I ask from the Lord,

this only do I seek:

that I may dwell in the house of the Lord

all the days of my life,a

to gaze on the beauty of the Lord

and to seek him in his temple.

For in the day of troubleb

he will keep me safec in his dwelling;

he will hide med in the shelter of his sacred tent

and set me high upon a rock.e

Then my head will be exaltedf

above the enemies who surround me;g

at his sacred tent I will sacrificeh with shouts of joy;i

I will singj and make musick to the Lord.

Hear my voicel when I call, Lord;

be merciful to me and answer me.m

My heart says of you, “Seek his face!n

Your face, Lord, I will seek.

Do not hide your faceo from me,

do not turn your servant away in anger;p

you have been my helper.q

Do not reject me or forsaker me,

God my Savior.s

10 Though my father and mother forsake me,

the Lord will receive me.

11 Teach me your way,t Lord;

lead me in a straight pathu

because of my oppressors.v

12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,

for false witnessesw rise up against me,

spouting malicious accusations.

13 I remain confident of this:

I will see the goodness of the Lordx

in the land of the living.y

14 Waitz for the Lord;

be stronga and take heart

and wait for the Lord.

Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.e In him was life,f and that life was the lightg of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness,h and the darkness has not overcomea it.i

There was a man sent from God whose name was John.j He came as a witness to testifyk concerning that light, so that through him all might believe.l He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.
