Return to Your Rest

This was written by David (1000ish B.C.).

It’s what I’ve been memorizing, and I thought I’d share it with you!

I love the LORD, because He hears

My voice and my supplications.

Because He has inclined His ear to me,

Therefore I shall call upon Him as long as I live.


The cords of death encompassed me

And the terrors of Sheol came upon me;

I found distress and sorrow.


Then I called upon the name of the LORD:

“O LORD, I beseech You, save my life!”

 

Gracious is the LORD, and righteous;

Yes, our God is compassionate.

The LORD preserves the simple;

I was brought low, and He saved me.

Return to your rest, O my soul,

For the LORD has dealt bountifully with you.

For you have rescued my soul from death,

My eyes from tears,

My feet from stumbling.

I shall walk before the LORD

In the land of the living.
