As for me, You uphold me in my integrity,
And You set me in Your presence forever.
Restore to me the joy of Your salvation

‘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;
