18 When I said, "My foot is slipping,"
your love, O LORD, supported me.
19 When anxiety was great within me,
your consolation brought joy to my soul.
Psalm 42:8 (New International Version)
8 By day the LORD directs his love,
at night his song is with me—
a prayer to the God of my life.
21 When my heart was grieved
and my spirit embittered,
22 I was senseless and ignorant;
I was a brute beast before you.
23 Yet I am always with you;
you hold me by my right hand.
24 You guide me with your counsel,
and afterward you will take me into glory.
25 Whom have I in heaven but you?
And earth has nothing I desire besides you.
26 My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever.
28 But as for me, it is good to be near God.
I have made the Sovereign LORD my refuge;
I will tell of all your deeds.
15 Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you,
who walk in the light of your presence, O LORD.
13 For you have delivered me from death
and my feet from stumbling,
that I may walk before God
in the light of life.
