The Lord is close to those who are of a broken heart
and saves such as are crushed in spirit and are humbly and thoroughly penitent.
Many evils confront the consistently righteous, but the Lord delivers him out of them all.
The Lord redeems the lives of His servants, and
none of those who take refuge and trust in Him shall be condemned.
We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair;
persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.
