Psalms 31

David shewing his confidence in God craveth his help.

Psalms 31:1 {To the chief Musician. A Psalm of David.} In thee, Jehovah, do I trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness. Psalms 31:2 Incline thine ear to me, deliver me speedily; be a strong rock to me, a house of defence to save me. Psalms 31:3 For thou art my rock and my fortress; and, for thy name's sake, thou wilt lead me and guide me. Psalms 31:4 Draw me out of the net that they have hidden for me; for thou art my strength. Psalms 31:5 Into thy hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, Jehovah, [thou] *God of truth. Psalms 31:6 I have hated them that observe lying vanities; and as for me, I have confided in Jehovah.

He rejoiceth in his mercy.

Psalms 31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in thy loving-kindness, for thou hast seen mine affliction; thou hast known the troubles of my soul, Psalms 31:8 And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: thou hast set my feet in a large place.

He prayeth in his calamity.

Psalms 31:9 Be gracious unto me, Jehovah, for I am in trouble: mine eye wasteth away with vexation, my soul and my belly. Psalms 31:10 For my life is spent with sorrow, and my years with sighing; my strength faileth through mine iniquity, and my bones are wasted. Psalms 31:11 More than to all mine oppressors, I am become exceedingly a reproach, even to my neighbours, and a fear to mine acquaintance: they that see me without flee from me. Psalms 31:12 I am forgotten in [their] heart as a dead man; I am become like a broken vessel. Psalms 31:13 For I have heard the slander of many—terror on every side—when they take counsel together against me: they plot to take away my life. Psalms 31:14 But I confided in thee, Jehovah; I said, thou art my God. Psalms 31:15 My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from my persecutors. Psalms 31:16 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant; save me in thy loving-kindness. Psalms 31:17 Jehovah, let me not be ashamed; for I have called upon thee: let the wicked be ashamed, let them be silent in Sheol. Psalms 31:18 Let the lying lips become dumb, which speak insolently against the righteous in pride and contempt.

He praiseth God for his goodness.

Psalms 31:19 [Oh] how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee, [which] thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee, before the sons of men! Psalms 31:20 Thou keepest them concealed in the secret of thy presence from the conspiracies of man; thou hidest them in a pavilion from the strife of tongues. Psalms 31:21 Blessed be Jehovah; for he hath shewn me wondrously his loving-kindness in a strong city. Psalms 31:22 As for me, I said in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eyes; nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications when I cried unto thee. Psalms 31:23 Love Jehovah, all ye his saints. Jehovah preserveth the faithful, and plentifully requiteth the proud doer. Psalms 31:24 Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all ye that hope in Jehovah.
