Psalm xxvii. 1. The Lord is my light, and my salvation; whom then shall I fear : the LORD is the strength of my life, of whom then shall I be afraid ?

2. When the wicked, even mine enemies, and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh : they stumbled and fell.

3. Though an host of men were laid against me, yet shall not my heart be afraid : and though there rose up war against me, yet will I put my trust in him.

4. One thing have I desired of the LORD, which I will require : even that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the fair beauty of the LORD, and to visit his temple.

5. For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his tabernacle : yea, in the secret place of his dwelling shall he hide me, and set me up upon a rock of stone.

6. And now shall he lift up mine head : above mine enemies round about me.

7. Therefore will I offer in his dwelling an oblation with great gladness : I will sing, and speak praises unto the LORD.

10. Nor cast away thy servant in displeasure.

15. I should utterly have fainted : but that I see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

16. O tarry thou the Lord's leisure : be strong, and he shall comfort thine heart; and put thou thy trust in the LORD.

xlvi. 1. God is our hope and strength : a very present help in trouble.

2. Therefore will we not fear, though the earth be moved : and though the hills' be carried into the midst of the sea.

3. Though the waters thereof rage and swell : and though the mountains shake at the tempest of the same.

6. The heathen make much ado, and the kingdoms are moved : but God hath shewed his voice, and the earth shall melt

away. 10. Be still then, and know that I am God : I will be exalted among the heathen, and I will be exalted in the earth.

11. The LORD of hosts is with us : the God of Jacob is our refuge. Glory be to God on high. Hallelujah. Amen.

2. When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, approached against me, they stumbled and fell and were snared, and were taken in the work of their own hands.

3. Though there rose up war against me, and though an host of men were laid against me : yet my trust shall be in him.

4. One thing have I desired of the Lord, which I will seek : even that I may inhabit in the dwelling of JEHOVAH for ever, to behold the mighty power and the glory of JEHOVAH, and be ever satisfied with the pleasures of his temple.
