You have known the distress of my soul

I will rejoice and be glad in your steadfast love,
because you have seen my affliction;

You have known the distress of my soul,
and you have not delivered me into the hand of the enemy;

You have set my feet in a broad place.

Be gracious to me, O Lord, for I am in distress;
my eye is wasted from grief;
my soul and my body also . . .

But I trust in you, O Lord;
I say, “You are my God.”

My times are in your hand;
rescue me from the hand of my enemies and from my persecutors!

Make your face shine on your servant;
save me in your steadfast love!

O Lord, let me not be put to shame,
for I call upon you.

-Psalm 31
