Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.
God setteth the solitary in families: he bringeth out those which are bound with chains: but the rebellious dwell in a dry land.
I laid me down and slept; I awaked; for the Lord sustained me.
I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, Lord, only makest me dwell in safety.
He will not suffer thy foot to be moved: he that keepeth thee will not slumber.
It is vain for you to rise up early, to sit up late, to eat the bread of sorrows: for so he giveth his beloved sleep.
When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet.
Hast thou not known? hast thou not heard, that the everlasting God, the Lord, the Creator of the ends of the earth, fainteth not, neither is weary? there is no searching of his understanding.
He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.
Even the youths shall faint and be weary, and the young men shall utterly fall:
The Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him.
It is good that a man should both hope and quietly wait for the salvation of the Lord.
It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth.
He sitteth alone and keepeth silence, because he hath borne it upon him.
He putteth his mouth in the dust; if so be there may be hope.
