Psalm 31:1-2; 14-15; 24 (NIV)

1 In you, Lord, I have taken refuge; let me never be put to shame; deliver me in your righteousness.

2 Turn your ear to me, come quickly to my rescue; be my rock of refuge, a strong fortress to save me.

14 But I trust in you, Lord; I say, “You are my God.”

15 My times are in your hands; deliver me from the hands of my enemies, from those who pursue me.

24 Be strong and take heart, all you who hope in the Lord.
