He holds victory in store for the upright, he is a shield to those whose walk is blameless
For surely, O LORD, you bless the righteous; you surround them with your favor as with a shield.
The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
Why are you downcast, O my soul? Why so disturbed within me? Put your hope in God, for I will yet praise him, my Savior and my God.
Commit to the LORD whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.
Yet the LORD longs to be gracious to you; he rises to show you compassion. For the LORD is a God of justice. Blessed are all who wait for him!
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.
