The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous
And His ears are open to their cry.
Behold, the eye of the Lord is on those who fear Him,
On those who hope for His lovingkindness,
“He does not withdraw His eyes from the righteous;
But with kings on the throne
He has seated them forever, and they are exalted.
This poor man cried, and the Lord heard him
And saved him out of all his troubles.
The righteous cry, and the Lord hears
And delivers them out of all their troubles.
So now, our God, listen to the prayer of Your servant and to his supplications, and for Your sake, O Lord, let Your face shine on Your desolate sanctuary.
“Now, O my God, I pray, let Your eyes be open and Your ears attentive to the prayer offered in this place.
Lord, hear my voice!
Let Your ears be attentive
To the voice of my supplications.
Then Hezekiah took the letter from the hand of the messengers and read it, and he went up to the house of the Lord and spread it out before the Lord.
“For the eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous,
And His ears attend to their prayer,
But the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.”
