Discover Psalm 31 Commentary in detail, with their Bible study and explained, as well as their meaning in the Catholic Bible among others.
In you, O Lord, I have put my trust; may I never be ashamed,
deliver me in your justice.
Incline your ear to me; deliver me soon;
be my strong rock and the fortress to save me.
For you are my rock and my fortress;
for the love of your name guide me and direct me.
Take me out of the net they have hidden for me,
for you are my strength.
Into your hands I commend my spirit;
You have redeemed me, O Jehovah, God of truth.
I have hated those who trust in vain idols,
but I have put my trust in the Lord.
I will rejoice and be glad in your mercy,
because you have seen my affliction;
you have known my soul in the anguish
and did not hand me over to the enemy;
you put my feet in a spacious place.
Have mercy on me, O Lord, for I am in distress;
my eyes, my soul and my body have been consumed with sadness.
Because my life is wasting away with pain and my years with sighing;
My strength is exhausted because of my iniquity, and my bones are wasted.
I have been a reproach of all my enemies,
and of my neighbors in a great way, and the horror of my acquaintances;
those who see me outside run away from me.
I have been forgotten from his heart like a dead man;
I have become like a broken vessel.
For I have heard the slander of many;
fear is everywhere,
as they conspire against me together
and plot to take my life.
But I trust in you, O Lord;
I say: You are my God.
My years are in your hands;
deliver me from the hands of my enemies and my persecutors.
Make your face shine on your servant;
save me by your mercy.
Let me not be ashamed, O Lord, since I have called on you;
let the wicked be put to shame; be silent in Sheol.
Lying lips that speak harsh things against the righteous,
with pride and contempt, are mute.
How great is your goodness, which you have kept for those who fear you,
which you have made for those who take refuge in you, before the sons of men!
In the secret of your presence you will hide them from the conspiracies of man;
you will put them in a tabernacle protected from the containment of tongues.
Blessed be the Lord,
for he has shown me marvelously in mercy in a fortified city.
And I said in my haste:
I am excluded from before your eyes;
However, you heard the voice of my prayers when I cried out to you.
Love the Lord, all you His saints;
The faithful are guarded by the Lord,
and generously rewarded the one who acts in pride.
Be strong, all of you who hope in the Lord,
and let your hearts take heart.
