Of Dawiḏ.

1 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is my light and my deliverance;
Whom should I fear?
𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 is the refuge of my life;
Whom should I dread?

2 When evil-doers come against me
To eat up my flesh,
My adversaries and my enemies,
They shall stumble and fall.

3 Though an army encamps against me,
My heart does not fear;
Though battle comes up against me,
Even then I would be trusting.

4 One I asked of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 – this I seek:
To dwell in the House of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄
All the days of my life,
To see the pleasantness of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄,
And to inquire in His Hĕyḵal.

5 For in the day of evil He hides me in His booth;
In the covering of His Tent He hides me;
On a rock He raises me up.

6 And now my head is lifted up above my enemies all around me;
And I offer in His Tent with offerings of shouts;
I sing, I sing praises to 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄.

7 Hear, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, when I cry with my voice!
And show me favour, and answer me.

8 To my heart You have said,
“Seek My face.”
Your face, 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, I seek.

9 Do not hide Your face from me;
Do not turn Your servant away in displeasure;
You have been my help;
Do not leave me nor forsake me,
O Elohim of my deliverance.

10 When my father and my mother have forsaken me,
Then 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄 takes me in.

11 Teach me Your Way, O 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄,
And lead me in a smooth path,
because of my enemies.

12 Do not give me over
To the desire of my adversaries;
For false witnesses have risen against me,
And they breathe out violence to me.

13 What if I had not believed
To see the goodness of 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄
In the land of the living!

14 Wait on 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄, be strong,
And let Him strengthen your heart!
Wait, I say, on 𐤉𐤄𐤅𐤄!
