Psalm 31:10-24

You have stored up abundant beauty and happiness

for those you have drawn to trust you

and bow to your authority.

Your very presence is our shelter, concealing us

from the harmful plans and sharp tongues of men.

I praise and worship Jehovah

for he displayed amazing mercy to me when I was besieged.

I was impulsive and cried out, “I am cut off from your sight!”

But you were always attentive to my cry.

            Oh, you who belong to Jehovah, love him dearly, put your hope in him.

            He protects his own and will rain down appropriate judgment

            on the arrogant who think they need no God.

            Stand firm and Jehovah will provide all the strength you need!
