ContextInto Your Hands I Commit My Spirit
1In you, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in your righteousness. 2Bow down your ear to me; deliver me speedily: be you my strong rock, for an house of defense to save me. 3For you are my rock and my fortress; therefore for your name's sake lead me, and guide me. 4Pull me out of the net that they have laid privately for me: for you are my strength. 5Into your hand I commit my spirit: you have redeemed me, O LORD God of truth. 6I have hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in the LORD. 7I will be glad and rejoice in your mercy: for you have considered my trouble; you have known my soul in adversities; 8And have not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: you have set my feet in a large room. 9Have mercy on me, O LORD, for I am in trouble: my eye is consumed with grief, yes, my soul and my belly. 10For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength fails because of my iniquity, and my bones are consumed. 11I was a reproach among all my enemies, but especially among my neighbors, and a fear to my acquaintance: they that did see me without fled from me. 12I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken vessel. 13For 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. 14But I trusted in you, O LORD: I said, You are my God. 15My times are in your hand: deliver me from the hand of my enemies, and from them that persecute me. 16Make your face to shine on your servant: save me for your mercies' sake. 17Let me not be ashamed, O LORD; for I have called on you: let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the grave. 18Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous. 19Oh how great is your goodness, which you have laid up for them that fear you; which you have worked for them that trust in you before the sons of men! 20You shall hide them in the secret of your presence from the pride of man: you shall keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues. 21Blessed be the LORD: for he has showed me his marvelous kindness in a strong city. 22For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before your eyes: nevertheless you heard the voice of my supplications when I cried to you. 23O love the LORD, all you his saints: for the LORD preserves the faithful, and plentifully rewards the proud doer. 24Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all you that hope in the LORD.
