and the Lord enfolds His people now and forever.

Tehillim/Psalms 131

O Lord, my heart is not proud nor my look haughty;

I do not aspire to great things or to what is beyond me;

but I have taught myself to be contented like a weaned child with its mother;

like a weaned child am I in my mind.

O Israel, wait for the Lord now and forever.

Tehillim/Psalms 131


Tehillim/Psalms 25.20-22

 

Protect me and save me;

let me not be disappointed,

May integrity and uprightness watch over me,

for I look to You.

Tehillim/Psalms 107.12-15a

He humbled their hearts through suffering;

they stumbled with no one to help.

In their adversity they cried to the Lord,

and He rescued them from their troubles.

He brought them out of deepest darkness,

broke their bonds asunder.

Let them praise the Lord for His steadfast love.

Seedtime and harvest,

And summer and winter,

And day and night Shall not cease.
