Hope is in the Name of The LORD
To the director; a psalm to David.1 Enduring, I waited on the lord, and he took heed to me, and he heard my supplication. 2 And he led me from out of the pit of misery, and from the mud of slime. And he stood [2upon 3the rock 1my feet], and straightened out my footsteps. 3 And he put into my mouth [2song 1a new], a hymn to our God. [2shall see 1Many], and shall fear, and shall hope upon the lord. 4 Blessed is the man of which [2is 3in the 4name 5of the lord 1his hope], and did not look to follies and [2frenzies 1false]. 5 Many things you did yourself, O lord my God, concerning your wonders; and concerning your devices there is not any that shall be likened to you. I reported and spoke -- they were multiplied above number. 6 A sacrifice and offering you wanted not, but a body you readied to me; whole burnt-offerings and a sacrifice for sin you did not seek. 7 Then I said, Behold, I come. In the chapter of the scroll it is written concerning me. 8 To do your will, O my God I wanted; and your law is in the midst of my belly. 9 I announced good news -- righteousness in [2assembly 1the great]. Behold, [3my lips 1in no way 2should I restrain], O lord, you know. 10 My righteousness I hid not in my heart; your truth and your deliverance I told; I hid not your mercy and your truth from the gathering of many. 11 But you, O lord, [2should not be 3far 1your compassions] from me. Your mercy and your truth, [2always 1may they] take hold of me. 12 For [2compass 3me 1bad things] which there is no number. [2overtook 3me 1My lawless deeds], and I was not able to see. They were multiplied over the hairs of my head; and my heart abandoned me. 13 Think well, O lord, to rescue me! O lord, [2to 3help 4me 1take heed]! 14 May [5be disgraced 6and 7feel shame 8together 1the ones 2seeking 3my life 4to lift it away]. May they be turned back to the rear, and may [4feel shame 1the ones 2wanting 3bad things for me]. 15 Let them carry immediately their shame -- the ones saying to me, Well done. well done. 16 [5exult 6and 7are glad 8over 9you 1All 2the ones 3seeking 4you], O lord. And let [5say 4always 6let the lord be magnified 1the ones 2loving 3your deliverance]! 17 But I am poor and needy; the lord will be thoughtful of me. [2my helper 3and 4my defender 1You are], O my God, you should not delay.
