Whom should I fear?
Yahweh is the stronghold of my life.
Whom should I dread?
my adversaries and my foes, they stumbled and fell.
my heart will not fear.
Though war should rise against me,
even then I will be trusting.
that I will seek:
to dwell in the house of Yahweh
all the days of my life,
to see Yahweh’s beauty
and to inquire in his temple.
he will hide me in his place of refuge,
he will hide me under the cover of his tent.
He will raise me upon a rock.
my enemies around me.
I will offer sacrifices in his tent with a joyful shout.
I will sing, yes, I will make music to Yahweh.
Show me favor, and answer me.
my heart said to you,
“I will seek your face, O Yahweh.”
Do not turn your servant away in anger.
You have been my help.
Do not forsake me, nor leave me,
O God of my salvation.
then Yahweh will receive me.
Yes, lead me in the level path
because of my enemies.
for false witnesses have risen up against me
and they violently witness against me.
I will see the goodness of Yahweh
in the land of the living.
Be strong and let your heart take courage.
Yes, wait for Yahweh.
