O Lord, I have come to You for protection; don’t let me be disgraced.
Save me and rescue me, for You do what is right.
Turn Your ear to listen to me, and set me free.
Be my rock of safety where I can always hide.
Give the order to save me, for You are my rock and my fortress.
Your righteousness, O God, reaches to the heavens.
You have done such wonderful things.
Who can compare with You, O God?
PSALM 27:1 NLT ~ The Lord is my light and my salvation, so why should I be afraid? The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble?
The RSV translation says, Whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life, of whom shall I be afraid?
The AMP Bible says, Whom shall I dread?
Halley’s Bible says, Fearless trust in God as the strength of my life ~ sing, pray and wait on the Lord.
Matthew Henry ~ It is possible that I can be God’s light in the world around me. He is my salvation, in whom I am safe, and by whom I shall be saved. He is the strength of my life. Not only the protector of my exposed life, but the strength of my frail, weak, life.
