Psalm 31
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1TO THE OVERSEER. A PSALM OF DAVID. In You, O YHWH, I have trusted, || Do not let me be ashamed for all time, || In Your righteousness deliver me.

2Incline Your ear to me quickly, deliver me, || Be to me for a strong rock, || For a house of bulwarks to save me.

3For You [are] my rock and my bulwark, || For Your Name’s sake lead me and tend me.

4Bring me out from the net that they hid for me, || For You [are] my strength.

5Into Your hand I commit my spirit, || You have redeemed me, YHWH God of truth.

6I have hated the observers of lying vanities, || And I have been confident toward YHWH.

7I rejoice, and am glad in Your kindness, || In that You have seen my affliction, || You have known my soul in adversities.

8And You have not shut me up, || Into the hand of an enemy, || You have caused my feet to stand in a broad place.

9Favor me, O YHWH, for distress [is] to me, || My eye, my soul, and my body || Have become old by provocation.

10For my life has been consumed in sorrow || And my years in sighing. My strength has been feeble because of my iniquity, || And my bones have become old.

11I have been a reproach among all my adversaries, || And to my neighbors exceedingly, || And a fear to my acquaintances, || Those seeing me without—fled from me.

12I have been forgotten as dead, out of mind, || I have been as a perishing vessel.

13For I have heard an evil account of many, || Fear [is] all around. In their being united against me, || They have devised to take my life,

14And I have trusted on You, || O YHWH, I have said, “You [are] my God.”

15In Your hand [are] my times, || Deliver me from the hand of my enemies, || And from my pursuers.

16Cause Your face to shine on Your servant, || Save me in Your kindness.

17O YHWH, do not let me be ashamed, || For I have called You, let the wicked be ashamed, || Let them become silent to Sheol.

18Let lips of falsehood become mute, || That are speaking against the righteous, || Ancient sayings, in pride and contempt.

19How abundant is Your goodness, || That You have laid up for those fearing You, || You have worked for those trusting in You, || Before sons of men.

20You hide them in the secret place of Your presence, || From schemes of man, || You conceal them in a dwelling place, || From the strife of tongues.

21Blessed [is] YHWH, || For He has made His kindness marvelous || To me in a city of bulwarks.

22And I have said in my haste, “I have been cut off from before Your eyes,” || But You have heard the voice of my supplications, || In my crying to You.

23Love YHWH, all you His saints, || YHWH is keeping the faithful, || And repaying a proud doer abundantly.

24Be strong, and He strengthens your heart, || All you who are waiting for YHWH!
