Psalm 27

Psalm 27

A psalm of David.

The Lord is my light, and he saves me.
    Why should I fear anyone?
The Lord is my place of safety.
    Why should I be afraid?
My enemies are evil.
    They will trip and fall
when they attack me
    and try to swallow me up.
Even if an army attacks me,
    my heart will not be afraid.
Even if war breaks out against me,
    I will still trust in God.

I’m asking the Lord for only one thing.
    Here is what I want.
I want to live in the house of the Lord
    all the days of my life.
I want to look at the beauty of the Lord.
    I want to worship him in his temple.
When I’m in trouble,
    he will keep me safe in his house.
He will hide me in the safety of his holy tent.
    He will put me on a rock that is very high.
Then I will win the battle
    over my enemies who are all around me.
At his holy tent I will offer my sacrifice with shouts of joy.
    I will sing and make music to the Lord.

Lord, hear my voice when I call out to you.
    Treat me with kindness and answer me.
My heart says, “Seek him!”
    Lord, I will seek you.
Don’t turn your face away from me.
    Don’t turn me away because you are angry.
    You have helped me.
God my Savior, don’t say no to me.
    Don’t desert me.
10 My father and mother may desert me,
    but the Lord will accept me.
11 Lord, teach me your ways.
    Lead me along a straight path.
    There are many people who treat me badly.
12 My enemies want to harm me. So don’t turn me over to them.
    Witnesses who tell lies are rising up against me.
    They say all sorts of evil things about me.

13 Here is something I am still sure of.
    I will see the Lord’s goodness
    while I’m still alive.
14 Wait for the Lord.
    Be strong and don’t lose hope.
    Wait for the Lord.

诗篇 27

赞美的祷告

大卫的诗。

1耶和华是我的光,我的拯救,
我还怕谁?
耶和华是我的堡垒,
我还怕谁?
当恶人来吞吃我,
仇敌来攻击我时,
必失足跌倒。
虽然大军围攻我,
我心中却一无所惧;
虽然战争来临,我仍满怀信心。
我曾向耶和华求一件事,
我还要求,就是能一生住在祂的殿中,
瞻仰祂的荣美,寻求祂的旨意。
危难之时,祂保护我,
把我藏在祂的圣幕里,
高高地安置在磐石上。
我要昂首面对四围的敌人,
我要在祂的圣幕里欢呼献祭,
歌颂赞美祂。

耶和华啊,求你垂听我的呼求,
求你恩待我,应允我。
你说:“来寻求我!”
我心中响应:
“耶和华啊,我要寻求你。”
别掩面不理我,
别愤然拒绝你的仆人,
你一向是我的帮助。
拯救我的上帝啊,
别离开我,别撇弃我。
10 纵使父母离弃我,
耶和华也必收留我。
11 耶和华啊,
求你指教我行你的道,
引导我走正路,远离仇敌。
12 求你不要让仇敌抓到我,
遂其所愿,
因为他们诬告我,恐吓我。

13 我深信今世必能看见耶和华的美善。
14 要等候耶和华,
要坚定不移地等候耶和华。
