Amplified Bible

Psalm 27

A Psalm of Fearless Trust in God.

A Psalm of David.

1The Lord is my light and my salvation—
Whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the refuge and fortress of my life—
Whom shall I dread?

When the wicked came against me to eat up my flesh,
My adversaries and my enemies, they stumbled and fell.

Though an army encamp against me,
My heart will not fear;
Though war arise against me,
Even in this I am confident.


One thing I have asked of the Lord, and that I will seek:
That I may dwell in the house of the Lord [in His presence] all the days of my life,
To gaze upon the beauty [the delightful loveliness and majestic grandeur] of the Lord
And to meditate in His temple.

For in the day of trouble He will hide me in His shelter;
In the secret place of His tent He will hide me;
He will lift me up on a rock.

And now my head will be lifted up above my enemies around me,
In His tent I will offer sacrifices with shouts of joy;
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises to the Lord.


Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud;
Be gracious and compassionate to me and answer me.

When You said, “Seek My face [in prayer, require My presence as your greatest need],” my heart said to You,
“Your face, O Lord, I will seek [on the authority of Your word].”

Do not hide Your face from me,
Do not turn Your servant away in anger;
You have been my help;
Do not abandon me nor [a]leave me,
O God of my salvation!
10 
Although my father and my mother have abandoned me,
Yet the Lord will take me up [adopt me as His child].

11 
Teach me Your way, O Lord,
And lead me on a level path
Because of my enemies [who lie in wait].
12 
Do not give me up to the will of my adversaries,
For false witnesses have come against me;
They breathe out violence.
13 
I would have despaired had I not believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord
In the land of the living.
14 
Wait for and confidently expect the Lord;
Be strong and let your heart take courage;
Yes, wait for and confidently expect the Lord.

詩篇 27

讚美的禱告

大衛的詩。

1耶和華是我的光,我的拯救,
我還怕誰?
耶和華是我的堡壘,
我還怕誰?
當惡人來吞吃我,
仇敵來攻擊我時,
必失足跌倒。
雖然大軍圍攻我,
我心中卻一無所懼;
雖然戰爭來臨,我仍滿懷信心。
我曾向耶和華求一件事,
我還要求,就是能一生住在祂的殿中,
瞻仰祂的榮美,尋求祂的旨意。
危難之時,祂保護我,
把我藏在祂的聖幕裡,
高高地安置在磐石上。
我要昂首面對四圍的敵人,
我要在祂的聖幕裡歡呼獻祭,
歌頌讚美祂。

耶和華啊,求你垂聽我的呼求,
求你恩待我,應允我。
你說:「來尋求我!」
我心中回應:
「耶和華啊,我要尋求你。」
別掩面不理我,
別憤然拒絕你的僕人,
你一向是我的幫助。
拯救我的上帝啊,
別離開我,別撇棄我。
10 縱使父母離棄我,
耶和華也必收留我。
11 耶和華啊,
求你指教我行你的道,
引導我走正路,遠離仇敵。
12 求你不要讓仇敵抓到我,
遂其所願,
因為他們誣告我,恐嚇我。

13 我深信今世必能看見耶和華的美善。
14 要等候耶和華,
要堅定不移地等候耶和華。
