An Exuberant Declaration of Faith
A Psalm of David.
1 THE LORD is my alight and my salvation; Whom shall I fear? The bLORD is the strength of my life; Of whom shall I be afraid?
2 When the wicked came against me To aeat1 up my flesh, My enemies and foes, They stumbled and fell.
3 aThough an army may encamp against me, My heart shall not fear; Though war may rise against me, In this I will be confident.
4 aOne thing I have desired of the LORD, That will I seek: That I may bdwell in the house of the LORD All the days of my life, To behold the 1beauty of the LORD, And to inquire in His temple.
5 For ain the time of trouble He shall hide me in His pavilion; In the secret place of His tabernacle He shall hide me; He shall bset me high upon a rock.
6 And now amy head shall be 1lifted up above my enemies all around me; Therefore I will offer sacrifices of 2joy in His tabernacle; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the LORD.
