When evil people attack me and try to kill me, they stumble and fall.Even if a whole army surrounds me, I will not be afraid; even if enemies attack me, I will still trust God.
I have asked the Lord for one thing; one thing only do I want: to live in the LORD’s house all my life, to marvel there at his goodness, and to ask for his guidance, in times of trouble he will shelter me; he will keep me safe in his Temple and make me secure on high rock. So I will triumph over my enemies around me. With shouts of joy I will offer sacrifices in his Temple; I will sing, I will praise the LORD.
Hear me, LORD, when I call to you! Be merciful and answer me! When you said, “come and worship me,” I answered, “I will come, LORD; don’t hide yourself from me!”
Don’t be angry with me; don’t turn your servant away. You have been my help; don’t leave me, don’t abandon me, O God, my saviour.My father and mother may abandon me, but the LORD will take care of me.
Teach me, LORD, what you want me to do, and lead me a long a safe path, because I have many enemies.Don’t abandon me to my enemies, who attack me with lies and threats.
I know that I will live to see the LORD’s goodness in this present life. Trust in the LORD. Have faith, do not despair. Trust in the LORD.
