II

11 Lord, show me your way;
    lead me on a level path
    because of my enemies.(A)
12 Do not abandon me to the desire of my foes;
    malicious and lying witnesses have risen against me.
13 I believe I shall see the Lord’s goodness
    in the land of the living.[a](B)

Footnotes

  1. 27:13 In the land of the living: or “in the land of life,” an epithet of the Jerusalem Temple (Ps 52:7; 116:9; Is 38:11), where the faithful had access to the life-giving presence of God.

11 Teach me your way,(A) Lord;
    lead me in a straight path(B)
    because of my oppressors.(C)
12 Do not turn me over to the desire of my foes,
    for false witnesses(D) rise up against me,
    spouting malicious accusations.

13 I remain confident of this:
    I will see the goodness of the Lord(E)
    in the land of the living.(F)

12 Deliver me not over unto the will of mine enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out cruelty.

13 I had fainted, unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living.
