“Then you would trust, because there is hope;
And you would look around and rest securely.
Indeed, your threshing will last for you until grape gathering, and grape gathering will last until sowing time. You will thus eat your food to the full and live securely in your land.
I lay down and slept;
I awoke, for the Lord sustains me.
In peace I will both lie down and sleep,
For You alone, O Lord, make me to dwell in safety.
“What is my strength, that I should wait?
And what is my end, that I should endure?
“My days are swifter than a weaver’s shuttle,
And come to an end without hope.
“You will pray to Him, and He will hear you;
And you will pay your vows.
Why are you in despair, O my soul?
And why are you disturbed within me?
Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him,
The help of my countenance and my God.
When you lie down, you will not be afraid;
When you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.
The wicked is thrust down by his wrongdoing,
But the righteous has a refuge when he dies.
And not only this, but we also exult in our tribulations, knowing that tribulation brings about perseverance;
to whom God willed to make known what is the riches of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Christ in you, the hope of glory.
