Psalm 27
Brenton Septuagint Translation

The Lord is My Salvation

1A Psalm of David, before he was anointed. The Lord is my light and my Saviour; whom shall I fear? the Lord is the defender of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

2When evil-doers drew nigh against me to eat up my flesh, my persecutors and mine enemies, they fainted and fell.

3Though an army should set itself in array against me, my heart shall not be afraid: though war should rise up against me, in this am I confident.

4One thing have I asked of the Lord, this will I earnestly seek: that I should dwell in the house of the Lord, all the days of my life, that I should behold the fair beauty of the Lord, and survey his temple.

5For in the day of mine afflictions he hid me in his tabernacle: he sheltered me in the secret of his tabernacle; he set me up on a rock.

6And now, behold, he has lifted up mine head over mine enemies: I went round and offered in his tabernacle the sacrifice of joy; I will sing even sing psalms to the Lord.

7Hear, O Lord, my voice which I have uttered aloud: pity me, and hearken to me.

8My heart said to thee, I have diligently sought thy face: thy face, O Lord, I will seek.

9Turn not thy face away from me, turn not thou away from thy servant in anger: be thou my helper, forsake me not; and, O God my Saviour, overlook me not.

10For my father and my mother have forsaken me, but the Lord has taken me to himself.

11Teach me, O Lord, in thy way, and guide me in a right path, because of mine enemies.

12Deliver me not over to the desire of them that afflict me; for unjust witnesses have risen up against me, and injustice has lied within herself.

13I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.

14Wait on the Lord: be of good courage, and let thy heart be strengthened: yea wait on the Lord.
