jwhom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold1 of my life;
to keat up my flesh,
3 lThough an army encamp against me,
yet2 I will be confident.
4 mOne thing have I asked of the Lord,
that I may ndwell in the house of the Lord
to gaze upon othe beauty of the Lord
and to inquire3 in his temple.
5 For he will phide me in his shelter
he will qlift me high upon a rock.
6 And now my rhead shall be lifted up
sacrifices with shouts of sjoy;
tI will sing and make melody to the Lord.
7 uHear, O Lord, when I cry aloud;
“Your face, Lord, do I seek.”5
9 wHide not your face from me.
xO God of my salvation!
10 For ymy father and my mother have forsaken me,
but the Lord will ztake me in.
11 aTeach me your way, O Lord,
and lead me on ba level path
12 cGive me not up to the will of my adversaries;
for dfalse witnesses have risen against me,
and they ebreathe out violence.
in gthe land of the living!
14 hWait for the Lord;
ibe strong, and let your heart take courage;
