Whom should I fear?+
Jehovah is the stronghold of my life.+
Whom should I dread?
My adversaries and my enemies were the ones who stumbled and fell.
Though war should break out against me,
Even then I will remain confident.
4 One thing I have asked from Jehovah
—It is what I will look for—
That I may dwell in the house of Jehovah all the days of my life,+
To gaze upon the pleasantness of Jehovah
He will conceal me in the secret place of his tent;+
High on a rock he will place me.+
6 Now my head is high above my enemies who surround me;
I will offer sacrifices at his tent with joyful shouting;
I will sing praises* to Jehovah.
8 Speaking for you, my heart has said:
“Seek to find my face.”
Your face, O Jehovah, I will seek to find.+
Do not turn your servant away in your anger.
You are my helper;+
Do not forsake me or leave me, my God of salvation.
For false witnesses have risen up against me,+
And they threaten me with violence.
13 Where would I be if I did not have faith
Yes, hope in Jehovah.
