PSALMS & PROVERBS

“He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.”
~Psalm 23:3

“She who dwells in the secret place of the Most High abides under the shadow of the Almighty. I say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I trust.’ Sure He delivers me from the snare of the fowler and from the perilous pestilence. He covers me with His feathers, and under His wings I take refuge; His truth is my shield and buckler. I am not afraid of the terror by night, nor of the arrow that flied by day, nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. A thousand may fall at my side, and ten thousand at my right hand; but it does not come near me. Only with my eyes do I look, and see the reward of the wicked. Because I have made the Lord, who is my refuge, even the Most High, my dwelling place, no evil befalls me, nor does any plague come near my dwelling; for He gives His angels charge over me, to keep me in all my ways. In their hands they bear me up, lest I dash my foot against a stone. I tread upon the lion and the cobra, the young lion and the serpent I shall trample underfoot. ‘Because you have set you love upon Me, therefore I have delivered you; I set you on high, because you know My name. You call upon Me, and I answer you; I am with you in trouble; I deliver you and honor you. With long life I satisfy you, and show you My salvation.'”
~Psalm 91

“When I say, ‘My foot has slipped,’ Your compassion and lovingkindness, O Lord, hold me up. When my anxious thoughts multiply within me, Your comforts delight me.”
~Psalm 94:18-19

“When we cried out to the Lord in our trouble, He saved us out of our distresses. He sent His word and healed us, and delivered us from our destructions.”
~Psalm 107:19-20

“Praise the Lord! Blessed is the woman who fears the Lord, who delights greatly in His commandments. My descendants are mighty on the earth; the generation of the upright are blessed. Wealth and riches are in my house, and my righteousness endures forever. Unto the upright there arises light in the darkness; I am gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous. Surely I am not shaken; the righteous is in everlasting remembrance. I am not afraid of evil tidings; my heart is steadfast, trusting in the Lord. My heart is established; I am not afraid and look with satisfaction on my adversaries. I disperse abroad, I give to the poor; my righteousness endures forever; my horn is exalted with honor. The wicked see it and are grieved; he gnashes his teeth and melts away; the desire of the wicked perishes.”
~Psalm 112:1-4, 6-10

“My heart does not envy sinners, but I am zealous for the fear of the Lord all the day; for surely there is a hereafter, and my hope is not cut off.”
