27 The Lord is my light and my salvation; I will fear no one. The Lord protects me from all danger; I will never be afraid.
2 When evil people attack me and try to kill me, they stumble and fall. 3 Even if a whole army surrounds me, I will not be afraid; even if enemies attack me, I will still trust God.[b]
4 I have asked the Lord for one thing; one thing only do I want: to live in the Lord's house all my life, to marvel there at his goodness, and to ask for his guidance. 5 In times of trouble he will shelter me; he will keep me safe in his Temple and make me secure on a high rock. 6 So I will triumph over my enemies around me. With shouts of joy I will offer sacrifices in his Temple; I will sing, I will praise the Lord.
7 Hear me, Lord, when I call to you! Be merciful and answer me! 8 When you said, “Come worship me,” I answered, “I will come, Lord.” 9 Don't hide yourself from me!
Don't be angry with me; don't turn your servant away. You have been my help; don't leave me, don't abandon me, O God, my savior. 10 My father and mother may abandon me, but the Lord will take care of me.
11 Teach me, Lord, what you want me to do, and lead me along a safe path, because I have many enemies. 12 Don't abandon me to my enemies, who attack me with lies and threats.
13 I know that I will live to see the Lord's goodness in this present life. 14 Trust in the Lord. Have faith, do not despair. Trust in the Lord.
