And do not let me be ashamed of my hope.
O my God, in You I trust,

For the arms of the wicked will be broken,
But the Lord sustains the righteous.
When he falls, he will not be hurled headlong,
Because the Lord is the One who holds his hand.
As for me, You uphold me in my integrity,
And You set me in Your presence forever.
Behold, God is my helper;
The Lord is the sustainer of my soul.
My soul clings to You;
Your right hand upholds me.
If I should say, “My foot has slipped,”
Your lovingkindness, O Lord, will hold me up.
‘Do not fear, for I am with you;
Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you, surely I will help you,
Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’
“Behold, My Servant, whom I uphold;
My chosen one in whom My soul delights.
I have put My Spirit upon Him;
He will bring forth justice to the nations.
Israel has been saved by the Lord
With an everlasting salvation;
You will not be put to shame or humiliated
To all eternity.

For this is contained in Scripture:
“Behold, I lay in Zion a choice stone, a precious corner stone,
And he who believes in Him will not be disappointed.”
