PS 26:1  The psalm of David before he was anointed. The Lord is my light and my salvation, whom shall I fear? The Lord is the protector of my life: of whom shall I be afraid?

PS 26:2  Whilst the wicked draw near against me, to eat my flesh. My enemies that trouble me, have themselves been weakened, and have fallen.

PS 26:3  If armies in camp should stand together against me, my heart shall not fear. If a battle should rise up against me, in this will I be confident.

PS 26:4  One thing I have asked of the Lord, this will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life. That I may see the delight of the Lord, and may visit his temple.

PS 26:5  For he hath hidden me in his tabernacle; in the day of evils, he hath protected me in the secret place of his tabernacle.

PS 26:6  He hath exalted me upon a rock: and now he hath lifted up my head above my enemies. I have gone round, and have offered up in his tabernacle a sacrifice of jubilation: I will sing, and recite a psalm to the Lord.

PS 26:7  Hear, O Lord, my voice, with which I have cried to thee: have mercy on me and hear me.

PS 26:8  My heart hath said to thee: My face hath sought thee: thy face, O Lord, will I still seek.

PS 26:9  Turn not away thy face from me; decline not in thy wrath from thy servant. Be thou my helper, forsake me not; do not thou despise me, O God my Saviour.

PS 26:10  For my father and my mother have left me: but the Lord hath taken me up.

PS 26:11  Set me, O Lord, a law in thy way, and guide me in the right path, because of my enemies.

PS 26:12  Deliver me not over to the will of them that trouble me; for unjust witnesses have risen up against me; and iniquity hath lied to itself.

PS 26:13  I believe to see the good things of the Lord in the land of the living.

PS 26:14  Expect the Lord, do manfully, and let thy heart take courage, and wait thou for the Lord.
