Context Readings

My Stronghold

1 The LORD is my light and my salvation whom will I fear? The LORD is the strength of my life; of whom will I be afraid? 2 When those who practice evil, my enemies, and my oppressors come near me to devour my flesh, they stumble and fall. 3 If an army encamps against me, my heart will not fear. If a war is launched against me, I will even trust in that situation.
