I was crying to the Lord with my voice,
And He answered me from His holy mountain. Selah.
“But as for Me, I have installed My King
Upon Zion, My holy mountain.”
I sought the Lord, and He answered me,
And delivered me from all my fears.
This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him
And saved him out of all his troubles.
O send out Your light and Your truth, let them lead me;
Let them bring me to Your holy hill
And to Your dwelling places.
O my God, I cry by day, but You do not answer;
And by night, but I have no rest.
Call upon Me in the day of trouble;
I shall rescue you, and you will honor Me.”
I cried to Him with my mouth,
And He was extolled with my tongue.
Be gracious to me, O Lord,
For to You I cry all day long.
“He will call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will rescue him and honor him.
Exalt the Lord our God
And worship at His holy hill,
For holy is the Lord our God.
I love the Lord, because He hears
My voice and my supplications.
A Song of Ascents.
Out of the depths I have cried to You, O Lord.
For the Lord has chosen Zion;
He has desired it for His habitation.
On the day I called, You answered me;
You made me bold with strength in my soul.
Maskil of David, when he was in the cave. A Prayer.
I cry aloud with my voice to the Lord;
I make supplication with my voice to the Lord.
It will also come to pass that before they call, I will answer; and while they are still speaking, I will hear.
Then you will call upon Me and come and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.
“Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.
Is anyone among you suffering? Then he must pray. Is anyone cheerful? He is to sing praises.
