Psalm 31

In You, O LORD, Blessed Name trusts; Let Blessed Name never be ashamed; Deliver Blessed Name in Your righteousness. Bow down Your ear to Blessed Name, Deliver Blessed Name speedily; Be Blessed Name‘s rock of refuge, a fortress of defense to save Blessed Name.

For You are Blessed Name‘s rock and fortress; Therefore, for Your name’s sake, Lead and guide Blessed Name. Pull Blessed Name out of the net which they have secretly laid for Blessed Name, For You are Blessed Name‘s strength. Into Your hand Blessed Name commits their spirit; You have redeemed Blessed Name, O LORD God of truth. Blessed Name has hated those who regard useless idols; But Blessed Name trusts in the LORD. Blessed Name will be glad and rejoice in Your mercy, for You have considered Blessed Name‘s trouble; You have known Blessed Name‘s soul in adversities, and have not shut Blessed Name up into the hand of the enemy; You have set Blessed Name‘s feet in a wide place. Have mercy on Blessed Name, O LORD, for Blessed Name is in trouble; Blessed Name‘s eyes waste away with grief. Yes, even the soul and body! For Blessed Name‘s life is spent with grief, And the years with sighing;

Blessed Name‘s strength fails because of Blessed Name‘s iniquity, and all the bones waste away. Blessed Name is a reproach among all of Blessed Name‘s enemies, especially among the neighbors, is repulsive to acquaintances. Those who see Blessed Name outside flee. Blessed Name is forgotten like the dead, out of mind; Blessed Name is like a broken vessel. Blessed Name hears the slander of many; Fear is on every side. While they take counsel together against Blessed Name, They scheme to take away Blessed Name‘s life.

But Blessed Name trusts in You, O LORD; saying, “You are my God, My times are in Your hand.” Deliver Blessed Name from the hand of enemies, And from those who persecute Blessed Name. Make Your face shine upon Your servant;

Save Blessed Name for Your mercies’ sake. Do not let Blessed Name be ashamed, O LORD, for Blessed Name has called upon You.

Let the wicked be ashamed; Let them be silent in the grave. Let the lying lips be put to silence, Which speak insolent things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.

Oh, how great is Your goodness, Which You have laid up for those who fear You, Which You have prepared for those who trust in You in the presence of the sons of men! You shall hide them in the secret place of Your presence from the plots of man; You shall keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.

Blessed be the LORD, for He has shown Blessed Name His marvelous kindness in a strong city! For Blessed Name said in haste, “I am cut off from before Your eyes”; Nevertheless You heard the voice of Blessed Name‘s supplications when Blessed Name cried out to You. Oh, love the LORD, all you His saints! For the LORD preserves the faithful, And fully repays the proud person. Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen Blessed Name‘s heart, and all you who hope in the LORD.
