Psalm 31

31:1 To the chiefe Musician, A Psalme of Dauid. In thee, O Lord, doe I put my trust, let me neuer be ashamed: deliuer me in thy righteousnesse. 31:2 Bowe downe thine eare to me, deliuer me speedily: be thou my strong rocke, for an house of defence to saue me. 31:3 For thou art my rocke and my fortresse: therfore for thy names sake lead me, and guide me. 31:4 Pull me out of the net, that they haue layd priuily for me: for thou art my strength. 31:5 Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed mee, O Lord God of trueth. 31:6 I haue hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in the Lord. 31:7 I will be glad, and reioyce in thy mercie: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast knowen my soule in aduersities; 31:8 And hast not shut me vp into the hand of the enemie: thou hast set my feete in a large roome. 31:9 Haue mercy vpon me, O Lord, for I am in trouble; mine eie is consumed with griefe, yea my soule and my belly. 31:10 For my life is spent with griefe, and my yeeres with sighing: my strength faileth, because of mine iniquitie, and my bones are consumed. 31:11 I was a reproch among all mine enemies, but especially among my neighbours, and a feare to mine acquaintance: they that did see me without, fled from me. 31:12 I am forgotten as a dead man out of minde: I am like a broken vessell. 31:13 For I haue heard the slaunder of many, feare was on euery side: while they tooke counsell together against me, they deuised to take away my life. 31:14 But I trusted in thee, O Lord: I sayd, Thou art my God. 31:15 My times are in thy hand: deliuer me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me. 31:16 Make thy face to shine vpon thy seruant: saue me for thy mercies sake. 31:17 Let mee not be ashamed, O Lord, for I haue called vpon thee: let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the graue. 31:18 Let the lying lippes be put to silence: which speake grieuous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous. 31:19 O how great is thy goodnesse, which thou hast layd vp for them that feare thee: which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee, before the sonnes of men! 31:20 Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence, from the pride of man: thou shalt keepe them secretly in a pauilion, from the strife of tongues. 31:21 Blessed be the Lord; for hee hath shewed me his maruellous kindnesse, in a strong citie. 31:22 For I sayd in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eies: Neuerthelesse thou heardest the voice of my supplications, when I cryed vnto thee. 31:23 O loue the Lord, all yee his Saints: for the Lord preserueth the faithfull, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer. 31:24 Be of good courage, and hee shall strenghten your heart: all ye that hope in the Lord.
