let me never be put to shame;
in your righteousness deliver me!

rescue me speedily!
Be a rock of refuge for me,
a strong fortress to save me!

and for your name’s sake you lead me and guide me;

for you are my refuge.

my eye is wasted from grief;
my soul and my body also.

my strength fails because of my iniquity,

especially to my neighbors,
and an object of dread to my acquaintances;
those who see me in the street flee from me.

save me in your steadfast love!

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 31:17 - O LORD, let me not be put to shame,
for I call upon you;
let the wicked be put to shame;
let them go silently to Sheol.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 31:18 - Let the lying lips be mute,
which speak insolently against the righteous
in pride and contempt.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 31:19 - Oh, how abundant is your goodness,
which you have stored up for those who fear you
and worked for those who take refuge in you,
in the sight of the children of mankind!

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 31:20 - In the cover of your presence you hide them
from the plots of men;
you store them in your shelter
from the strife of tongues.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 31:21 - Blessed be the LORD,
for he has wondrously shown his steadfast love to me
when I was in a besieged city.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 31:22 - I had said in my alarm,[fn]
“I am cut off from your sight.”
But you heard the voice of my pleas for mercy
when I cried to you for help.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 31:23 - Love the LORD, all you his saints!
The LORD preserves the faithful
but abundantly repays the one who acts in pride.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 31:24 - Be strong, and let your heart take courage,
all you who wait for the LORD!
