Psalm for Friday in the First Week of Advent
Psalm 27:1-6, 17-18
1 The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom then shall I fear?*
the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom then shall I be afraid?
2 When evildoers came upon me to eat up my flesh,*
it was they, my foes and my adversaries, who stumbled and fell.
3 Though an army should encamp against me,*
yet my heart shall not be afraid.
4 And though war should rise up against me,*
yet will I put my trust in him.
5 One thing have I asked of the LORD; one thing I seek;*
That I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life;
6 To behold the fair beauty of the LORD*
and to seek him in his temple.
17 What if I had not believed that I should see the goodness of the LORD*
in the land of the living!
18 O tarry and await the LORD's pleasure; be strong, and he shall comfort your heart;*
wait patiently for the LORD.
