Go to Commentary on Ps 31
 
For the Musical Director.
A Psalm of David.

 1 In you, O Yahweh, I seek refuge;

 may I never be ashamed

 Deliver me by your righteousness.

 

 2 Turn your ear to me. Deliver me quickly.

 Be to me a rock of protection,

 a stronghold to deliver me.

 

 3 For you are my rock and my fortress,

 therefore for your name’s sake

 you will guide me and lead me.

 

 4 Rescue me out of the net

 that they have secretly set for me,

 for you are my protection.

 

 5 Into your hand I entrust my spirit.

 You redeem me, O Yahweh, God of faithfulness

 

 
6 
I hate those who are devoted to worthless idols,

 but I trust in Yahweh.

 

 7 I will be glad and rejoice in your covenant faithfulness,

 for you have seen my affliction.

 You know the distresses of my soul.

 

 8 You have not delivered me into the hand of the enemy.

 You have set my feet in a large place.

 

 
9 
Have favor on me, O Yahweh,

 for I am in distress.

 My eye is wasted away in grief; my soul, even my body.

 

 10 For my life is spent with sorrow,

 And my years with groaning.

 My strength fails

 because of my iniquity.

 My bones are wasted away.

 

 11 Because of all my adversaries

 I have become a disgrace,

 even much more to my neighbors,

 and a fear to those who know me.

 Those who saw me on the street fled from me.

 

 12 I have been forgotten from their hearts

 like a dead man. I am like a broken vessel.

 

 13 For I have heard the slander of many—terror is on every side!—

 as they conspire together against me,

 as they plot to take away my soul.

 

 
14 
But I trust in you, O Yahweh.

 I said, “You are my God.”

 

 15 My times are in your hand.

 Deliver me from the hand of my enemies

 and from those pursuing me.

 

 16 Make your face to shine on your servant.

 Deliver me because of your covenant faithfulness!

 

 17 Let me not be ashamed, O Yahweh, for I have called on you.

 Let the wicked be ashamed!

 Let them be silent in Sheol.

 

 18 Let the deceptive lips become mute,

 those that speak arrogantly against a righteous person

 with pride and contempt.

 

 
19 
How great is your goodness

 that you have stored up for those who fear you,

 that you have done for those

 who have sought refuge in you in the presence of the sons of men!

 

 20 In the covering of your presence

 you will hide them from the plotting of man.

 You will shelter them secretly in a dwelling

 away from the strife of tongues.

 

 21 Blessed be Yahweh,

 for he has marvelously performed his covenant faithfulness to me

 in a city under siege.

 

 22 As for me, I said in my alarm,

 “I am cut off from before your eyes.”

 Yet surely you have heard

 the sound of my petitions

 when I cried out to you for help.

 

 23 Love Yahweh, all you his faithful ones!

 Yahweh watches over the loyal

 and fully repays the person who acts with pride.

 

 24 Be strong and let your heart take courage,

 all you who wait for Yahweh.
