Psalm 27

In today’s Oratio Hour, Rev. Jonathan Fisk meditates on Psalm 27:7-13.

Hear, O Lord, when I cry aloud;
    be gracious to me and answer me!
You have said, “Seek[a] my face.”
My heart says to you,
    “Your face, Lord, do I seek.”[b]
    Hide not your face from me.
Turn not your servant away in anger,
    O you who have been my help.
Cast me not off; forsake me not,
    O God of my salvation!
10 For my father and my mother have forsaken me,
    but the Lord will take me in.

11 Teach me your way, O Lord,
    and lead me on a level path
    because of my enemies.
12 Give me not up to the will of my adversaries;
    for false witnesses have risen against me,
    and they breathe out violence.

13 I believe that I shall look[c] upon the goodness of the Lord
    in the land of the living!
