1 In thee, O LORD, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness. 2 Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me. 3 For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me. 4 Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for thou art my strength. 5 Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O LORD God of truth. 6 I have hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in the LORD. 7 I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities; 8 And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: thou hast set my feet in a large room. 9 Have mercy upon me, O LORD, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly. 10 For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed. 11 I was a reproach among all mine enemies, but especially among my neighbours, and a fear to mine acquaintance: they that did see me without fled from me. 12 I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken vessel. 13 For I have heard the slander of many: fear was on every side: while they took counsel together against me, they devised to take away my life. 14 But I trusted in thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my God. 15 My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me. 16 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy mercies' sake. 17 Let me not be ashamed, O LORD; for I have called upon thee: let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the grave. 18 Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous. 19 Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men! 20 Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues. 21 Blessed be the LORD: for he hath shewed me his marvellous kindness in a strong city. 22 For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eyes: nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications when I cried unto thee. 23 O love the LORD, all ye his saints: for the LORD preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer. 24 Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.

1 Sara Di Diego = "Scholars believe that this psalm was penned throughout David's persecution and battles against Saul from Keila until the cave in En-gedi.  David had many close calls during this time, in which he thought he was going to die (such as in 1 Samuel 23:13 in Keila).Work Cited:https://www.blueletterbible.org/Comm/mhc/Psa/Psa_031.cfm"
2 Sara Di Diego = "The Hebrew word used here means "let my enemies win".Work Cited:http://www.easyenglish.info/psalms/psalm031-taw.htm"
3 Cary W = "When we look to God to be our protector, provider and comfort, we are given vision to see that not only are we His children, but that even before we see the victory, we have confidence of His Redemption at work in all things."
4 angela h = "This is a foreshadowing of what Jesus says while He is hanging on the cross. Luke 23:46 " And when Jesus had cried with a  loud voice, He said, Father, into Thy hands I commend my spirit: and having said thus, He gave up the ghost."He gives His very life back to The Father."
5 Cary W = "God's work in David is so profound, for even though much of his suffering was the result of his own folly, he believes God is merciful and aware that his enemies are using his weaknesses to destroy him.  And God does hear his cry and does deliver him from the mischief of his enemies.This is very encouraging, for too many times we get discouraged in our errors and weaknesses, thinking God is punishing us, yet he knows our temptations and errors and continually offers us his forgiveness and renewal, but also to deliver us from the attacks of those who seem to eager to prey on the weak."
6 Sarah Mangum = "Top 10 Verses for Those Grieving"
7 Sara Di Diego = ""Shine the light of your face" was a phrase that meant "be kind" in Hebrew.  Thus, David was begging God to be kind to him.Work Cited:http://www.easyenglish.info/psalms/psalm031-taw.htm"
8 Cary W = "His Marvelous Kindness!  Even when we are tempted to think He has cut us off or abandoned us (due to our sin), He hears our prayers and answers us. David demonstrates tremendous love and faith in the Lord, praising His great goodness, His marvelous kindness, and His love for us to hide us in His Presence from the pride of man and the strife of their tongues."
