Psalm 27, verses 1 & 4

ְהוָה, אוֹרִי וְיִשְׁעִי–מִמִּי אִירָא;

יְהוָה מָעוֹז-חַיַּי, מִמִּי אֶפְחָד.

אַחַת, שָׁאַלְתִּי מֵאֵת-יְהוָה– אוֹתָהּ אֲבַקֵּשׁ:

שִׁבְתִּי בְּבֵית-יְהוָה, כָּל-יְמֵי חַיַּי;

לַחֲזוֹת בְּנֹעַם-יְהוָה, וּלְבַקֵּר בְּהֵיכָלוֹ.

God is my light and my refuge secure —  whom shall I fear?  God is the stronghold of my life —  of whom should I be afraid?

Just one thing I have asked of God;  only this do I seek:  to dwell in God’s House all the days of my life,  to behold divine sweetness and beauty,  and to gaze in delight at God’s Temple.[1]
