Who satisfieth thy desire with good things, so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle.
The Lord executeth righteous acts, and judgments for all that are oppressed.
He made known his ways unto Moses, his doings unto the children of Israel.
The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abundant in lovingkindness.
He will not always chide ; neither will he keep his anger for ever.
He hath not dealt with us after our sins, nor rewarded us after our iniquities.
For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is his lovingkindness toward them that fear him.
As far as the east is from the west, so far hath he removed our transgressions from us.
Like as a father pitieth his children,
So the Lord pitieth them that fear him.
For he knoweth our frame ; he remembereth that we are dust.
As for man, his days are as grass ; as a flower of the field, so he flourisheth. For the wind passeth over it, and it is gone ; and the place thereof shall know it no more.
But the lovingkindness of the Lord is from everlasting to everlasting upon them that fear him,
And his righteousness unto children's children ;
To such as keep his covenant, and to those that remember his precepts to do them.
CONFIDENCE IN GOD
HE that dwelleth in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.
I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in whom I trust.
For he will deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the deadly pestilence.
