Psalm 31
Legacy Standard Bible►► 

Into Your Hand I Commit My Spirit

For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

1In You, O Yahweh, I have taken refuge;

Let me never be ashamed;

In Your righteousness protect me.

2Incline Your ear to me, deliver me quickly;

Be to me a rock of [†]strength,

A fortress to save me.

3For You are my [†]high rock and my fortress;

For Your name’s sake You will lead me and guide me.

4You will bring me out of the net which they have secretly laid for me,

For You are my strength.

5Into Your hand I commit my spirit;

You have ransomed me, O Yahweh, God of truth.

6I hate those who regard worthless idols,

But I trust in Yahweh.

7I will rejoice and be glad in Your lovingkindness,

Because You have seen my affliction;

You have known the troubles of my soul,

8And You have not given me over into the hand of the enemy;

You have set my feet in a large place.

9Be gracious to me, O Yahweh, for I am in distress;

My eye is wasted away from grief, my soul and [†]my body also.

10For my life is worn down with sorrow

And my years with sighing;

My strength fails because of my iniquity,

And my bones waste away.

11Among all my adversaries, I have become a reproach,

Especially to my neighbors,

And an object of dread to my acquaintances;

Those who see me in the street flee from me.

12I am forgotten like a dead man—out of [†]mind—

I am like a broken vessel.

13For I have heard [†]the bad report of many,

Terror is on every side;

While they took counsel together against me,

They schemed to take my life.

14But as for me, I trust in You, O Yahweh,

I say, “You are my God.”

15My times are in Your hand;

Deliver me from the hand of my enemies and from those who pursue me.

16Make Your face to shine upon Your slave;

Save me in Your lovingkindness.

17O Yahweh, let me not be put to shame, for I call upon You;

Let the wicked be put to shame, let them be silent in Sheol.

18Let the lying lips be mute,

Which speak arrogantly against the righteous

With lofty pride and contempt.

19How great is Your goodness,

Which You have stored up for those who fear You,

Which You have worked for those who take refuge in You,

Before the sons of men!

20You hide them in the secret place of Your presence from the conspiracies of man;

You keep them secretly in a [†]shelter from the strife of tongues.

21Blessed be Yahweh,

For He has made marvelous His lovingkindness to me in a besieged city.

22As for me, I said in my alarm,

“I am cut off from before Your eyes”;

Nevertheless, You heard the voice of my supplications

When I cried to You for help.

23Oh, love Yahweh, all you His holy ones!

Yahweh guards the faithful

But repays fully the one who acts in lofty pride.

24Be strong and let your heart take courage,

All you who wait for Yahweh.
