(Psalms 31:1) In You, O LORD, I put my trust; Let me never be ashamed; Deliver me in Your righteousness.

(Psalms 31:2) Bow down Your ear to me, Deliver me speedily; Be my rock of refuge, A fortress of defense to save me.

(Psalms 31:3) For You are my rock and my fortress; Therefore, for Your name’s sake, Lead me and guide me.

(Psalms 31:4) Pull me out of the net which they have secretly laid for me, For You are my strength.

(Psalms 31:5) Into Your hand I commit my spirit; You have redeemed me, O LORD God of truth.

(Psalms 31:6) I have hated those who regard useless idols; But I trust in the LORD.

(Psalms 31:7) I will be glad and rejoice in Your mercy, For You have considered my trouble; You have known my soul in adversities,

(Psalms 31:8) And have not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; You have set my feet in a wide place.

(Psalms 31:9) Have mercy on me, O LORD, for I am in trouble; My eye wastes away with grief, Yes, my soul and my body!

(Psalms 31:10) For my life is spent with grief, And my years with sighing; My strength fails because of my iniquity, And my bones waste away.

(Psalms 31:11) I am a reproach among all my enemies, But especially among my neighbors, And am repulsive to my acquaintances; Those who see me outside flee from me.

(Psalms 31:12) I am forgotten like a dead man, out of mind; I am like a broken vessel.

(Psalms 31:13) For I hear the slander of many; Fear is on every side; While they take counsel together against me, They scheme to take away my life.

(Psalms 31:14) But as for me, I trust in You, O LORD; I say, “You are my God.”

(Psalms 31:15) My times are in Your hand; Deliver me from the hand of my enemies, And from those who persecute me.

(Psalms 31:16) Make Your face shine upon Your servant; Save me for Your mercies’ sake.

(Psalms 31:17) Do not let me be ashamed, O LORD, for I have called upon You; Let the wicked be ashamed; Let them be silent in the grave.

(Psalms 31:18) Let the lying lips be put to silence, Which speak insolent things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.

(Psalms 31:19) 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!

(Psalms 31:20) 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.

(Psalms 31:21) Blessed be the LORD, For He has shown me His marvelous kindness in a strong city!

(Psalms 31:22) For I said in my haste, “I am cut off from before Your eyes”; Nevertheless You heard the voice of my supplications When I cried out to You.

(Psalms 31:23) Oh, love the LORD, all you His saints! For the LORD preserves the faithful, And fully repays the proud person.

(Psalms 31:24) Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart, All you who hope in the LORD.
