For the Chief Musician. A Psalm by David.
(Son to Father during His suffering)
31:1 In You, YHVH, I take refuge.
Let Me never be disappointed.
Deliver Me in Your righteousness.
31:2 Bow down Your ear to Me.
Deliver Me speedily.
Be to Me a Strong Rock,
a House of Defense to save Me.
31:3 For You are My Rock and My Fortress,
therefore for Your Name’s sake lead Me and guide Me.
31:4 Pluck Me out of the net
that they have laid secretly for Me,
for You are My Stronghold.
(YAHSHUA said this from the cross right before He died)
31:5 Into Your hand I commend My Spirit.
You redeem Me, YHVH, ‘El of truth.
31:6 I hate those who regard lying vanities,
but I trust in YHVH.
31:7 I will be glad and rejoice in Your mercy,
for You have seen My affliction.
You have known My soul in adversities.
31:8 You have not shut Me up into the hand of the enemy.
You have set My feet in a large place.
31:9 Have mercy on Me, YHVH, for I am in distress.
My eye, My soul, and My body waste away with grief.
31:10 For My life is spent with sorrow,
My years with sighing.
(YAHSHUA took our sins on Himself and confessed them as His own)
My strength fails because of My iniquity.
My bones are wasted away.
31:11 Because of all My adversaries
I have become utterly Contemptible to My neighbors,
A fear to My acquaintances.
those who saw Me on the street fled from Me.
31:12 I am forgotten from their hearts like a dead Man.
I am like Broken Pottery.
31:13 For I have heard the slander of many,
terror on every side,
while they conspire together against Me,
they plot to take away My life.
(Son to Father)
31:14 But I trust in You, YHVH.
I said, “You are My ‘Elohiym.”
31:15 My times are in Your hand.
Deliver Me from the hand of My enemies,
and from those who persecute Me.
31:16 Make Your face to shine on Your Servant.
Save Me in Your mercy.
31:17 Let Me not be disappointed, YHVH,
for I have called on You.
Let the wicked be disappointed.
Let them be silent in Sheol.
31:18 Let the lying lips be mute,
which speak against the Righteous insolently,
with pride and contempt.
31:19 Oh how great is Your goodness,
which You have laid up for those who fear You,
which You have worked for
those who take refuge in You,
before the sons of men!
31:20 In the shelter of Your presence
You will hide them from the plotting of man.
You will keep them secretly in a dwelling
away from the strife of tongues.
31:21 Blessed be YHVH,
for He has shown Me His marvelous mercy
in a strong city.in a strong city.
31:22 As for Me, I said in My haste,
“I am cut off from before Your eyes.”
Nevertheless You heard
the voice of My petitions when I cried to You.
(Son to believers about Father)
31:23 Oh love YHVH, all you His faithful!
YHVH preserves the believers,
and fully recompenses him who behaves arrogantly.
31:24 Be strong, and let your heart take courage,
all you who hope in YHVH.
