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?
Psalm 27:1 (New Living Translation)
The LORD is my light and my salvation—
whom shall I fear?
The LORD is the stronghold of my life—
of whom shall I be afraid?
Psalm 27:1 (New International Version)
Light, space, zest— that’s God!
So, with him on my side I’m fearless,
afraid of no one and nothing.
Psalm 27:1 (The Message)
These are the words of a man who has learned how to be sustained in the most difficult, trying times of life. He learned in the midst of troubles that he did not need to live in fear, because God was his defense.
