LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.
For there is, a Moment, in his anger, a Life-time, in his good-pleasure, In the evening, cometh Weeping to lodge, But, by the morning, -- tis a Shout of Triumph!
For, thou, wilt bless the righteous man, O Yahweh, As with an all-covering shield - with good pleasure, wilt thou encompass him.
Thus didst thou grant me, as a shield, thy salvation, - and, thy right hand, sustained me, and, thy condescension, made me great.
For, not by their own sword, gat they possession of the land, Nor did, their own arm, win victory for them, - But thine own right hand, and thine own arm, and the light of thy face, Because thou hadst accepted them.
For, the beauty of their strength, thou art, And, in thine acceptance, shall our horns be exalted.
Life and lovingkindness, thou didst bestow upon me, - and, thy watchful care, preserved my breath.
So he brought me up, Out of the destroying pit, Out of the swampy mire, - And set, upon a cliff, my feet, Making firm my steps:
1 Chronicles 17:26
Now, therefore, O Yahweh, thou, art God, - therefore hast thou spoken concerning thy servant this goodness.

Surely, for good, I looked, but there came in evil, And I waited for light, but there came in darkness;
Lo! for well-being, I had bitterness - bitterness, - But, thou, cleaving unto my soul, hast raised me from the pit of corruption, For thou hast cast, behind thy back all my sins.
Happy, they who mourn; for, they, shall be comforted:
