Blessed be the LORD, because he hath heard the voice of my supplications.
In the covert of thy presence thou hidest them from the plots of men; thou holdest them safe under thy shelter from the strife of tongues.
Blessed be the LORD, for he has wondrously shown his steadfast love to me when I was beset as in a besieged city.
If I had cherished iniquity in my heart, the Lord would not have listened.
But truly God has listened; he has given heed to the voice of my prayer. [ (Psalms 66:21) Blessed be God, because he has not rejected my prayer or removed his steadfast love from me! ]
Let the oppressed see it and be glad; you who seek God, let your hearts revive.
For the LORD hears the needy, and does not despise his own that are in bonds.
Then they cried to the LORD in their trouble, and he delivered them from their distress;
he sent forth his word, and healed them, and delivered them from destruction.
Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love, for his wonderful works to the sons of men!
And let them offer sacrifices of thanksgiving, and tell of his deeds in songs of joy!
I love the LORD, because he has heard my voice and my supplications.
Because he inclined his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live.
Out of my distress I called on the LORD; the LORD answered me and set me free.
