Psalm 27

Triumphant Song of Confidence

Of David.
1 The Lord is my light and my salvation;
   whom shall I fear?
The Lord is the stronghold* of my life;
   of whom shall I be afraid?


2 When evildoers assail me
   to devour my flesh—
my adversaries and foes—
   they shall stumble and fall.


3 Though an army encamp against me,
   my heart shall not fear;
though war rise up against me,
   yet I will be confident.


4 One thing I asked of the Lord,
   that will I seek after:
to live in the house of the Lord
   all the days of my life,
to behold the beauty of the Lord,
   and to inquire in his temple.


5 For he will hide me in his shelter
   in the day of trouble;
he will conceal me under the cover of his tent;
   he will set me high on a rock.


6 Now my head is lifted up
   above my enemies all around me,
and I will offer in his tent
   sacrifices with shouts of joy;
I will sing and make melody to the Lord.


7 Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud,
   be gracious to me and answer me!
8 ‘Come,’ my heart says, ‘seek his face!’
   Your face, Lord, do I seek.
9   Do not hide your face from me.


Do not turn your servant away in anger,
   you who have been my help.
Do not cast me off, do not forsake me,
   O God of my salvation!
10 If my father and mother forsake me,
   the Lord will take me up.


11 Teach me your way, O Lord,
   and lead me on a level path
   because of my enemies.
12 Do not give me up to the will of my adversaries,
   for false witnesses have risen against me,
   and they are breathing out violence.


13 I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord
   in the land of the living.
14 Wait for the Lord;
   be strong, and let your heart take courage;
   wait for the Lord!

Psalm 28

Prayer for Help and Thanksgiving for It

Of David.
1 To you, O Lord, I call;
   my rock, do not refuse to hear me,
for if you are silent to me,
   I shall be like those who go down to the Pit.
2 Hear the voice of my supplication,
   as I cry to you for help,
as I lift up my hands
   towards your most holy sanctuary.*


3 Do not drag me away with the wicked,
   with those who are workers of evil,
who speak peace with their neighbours,
   while mischief is in their hearts.
4 Repay them according to their work,
   and according to the evil of their deeds;
repay them according to the work of their hands;
   render them their due reward.
5 Because they do not regard the works of the Lord,
   or the work of his hands,
he will break them down and build them up no more.


6 Blessed be the Lord,
   for he has heard the sound of my pleadings.
7 The Lord is my strength and my shield;
   in him my heart trusts;
so I am helped, and my heart exults,
   and with my song I give thanks to him.


8 The Lord is the strength of his people;
   he is the saving refuge of his anointed.
9 O save your people, and bless your heritage;
   be their shepherd, and carry them for ever.

Psalm 29

The Voice of God in a Great Storm

A Psalm of David.
1 Ascribe to the Lord, O heavenly beings,*
   ascribe to the Lord glory and strength.
2 Ascribe to the Lord the glory of his name;
   worship the Lord in holy splendour.


3 The voice of the Lord is over the waters;
   the God of glory thunders,
   the Lord, over mighty waters.
4 The voice of the Lord is powerful;
   the voice of the Lord is full of majesty.


5 The voice of the Lord breaks the cedars;
   the Lord breaks the cedars of Lebanon.
6 He makes Lebanon skip like a calf,
   and Sirion like a young wild ox.


7 The voice of the Lord flashes forth flames of fire.
8 The voice of the Lord shakes the wilderness;
   the Lord shakes the wilderness of Kadesh.


9 The voice of the Lord causes the oaks to whirl,*
   and strips the forest bare;
   and in his temple all say, ‘Glory!’


10 The Lord sits enthroned over the flood;
   the Lord sits enthroned as king for ever.
11 May the Lord give strength to his people!
   May the Lord bless his people with peace!
