    Psalms 31
    King James Version

    1 In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust;
    let me never be ashamed:
    deliver me in thy righteousness.​
    2 Bow down thine ear to me;
    deliver me speedily:
    be thou my strong rock,
    for an house of defence to save me.​

    3 For thou art my rock and my fortress;
    therefore for thy name's sake lead me,
    and guide me.​
    4 Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me:
    for thou art my strength.​
    5 Into thine hand I commit my spirit:
    thou hast redeemed me, O Lord God of truth.​

    6 I have hated them that regard lying vanities:
    but I trust in the Lord.​
    7 I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy:
    for thou hast considered my trouble;
    thou hast known my soul in adversities;​
    8 And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy:
    thou hast set my feet in a large room.​

    9 Have mercy upon me, O Lord, for I am in trouble:
    mine eye is consumed with grief,
    yea, my soul and my belly.​
    10 For my life is spent with grief,
    and my years with sighing:
    my strength faileth because of mine iniquity,
    and my bones are consumed.​
    11 I was a reproach among all mine enemies,
    but especially among my neighbours,
    and a fear to mine acquaintance:
    they that did see me without fled from me.​
    12 I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind:
    I am like a broken vessel.​
    13 For I have heard the slander of many:
    fear was on every side:
    while they took counsel together against me,
    they devised to take away my life.​

    14 But I trusted in thee, O Lord:
    I said, Thou art my God.​
    15 My times are in thy hand:
    deliver me from the hand of mine enemies,
    and from them that persecute me.​
    16 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant:
    save me for thy mercies' sake.​
    17 Let me not be ashamed, O Lord; for I have called upon thee:
    let the wicked be ashamed,
    and let them be silent in the grave.​
    18 Let the lying lips be put to silence;
    which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.​

    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!​
    20 Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence
    from the pride of man:
    thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion
    from the strife of tongues.​

    21 Blessed be the Lord:
    for he hath shewed me his marvellous kindness in a strong city.​
    22 For 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.​

    23 O love the Lord, all ye his saints:
    for the Lord preserveth the faithful,
    and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.​
    24 Be of good courage,
    and he shall strengthen your heart,
    all ye that hope in the Lord.

    Trusting and Obeying the God of Truth: Loving others within the limits that truth allows. "...not as though I wrote to thee a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it." —2 John 1:5-6

    LOL, totally freaked me out all ready, this from the tittle page it reads as follows-Psalms 31 Into Your Hand I Commit My Spirit To The Chief Musician.
    I'm like "what", commit my spirit to whom?
    Then realized it mixed title with foot notes, HA HA Had me going oh no what new weird erroneous fad is this where we give our spirits to the chief musician.
    - gave a like cause I liked and you woke me up.
