Ps 88:5-6  Ps 143:3  Ps 143:7 

7 He has walled me in so that I cannot escape; he has weighed me down with chains;
Job 3:23  Job 19:8  Hos 2:6  Jer 38:6  Ps 88:8  Dan 9:12  Jer 40:4 

8 even when I shout for help, he shuts out my prayer.
Job 30:20  Ps 22:2  Job 19:7  Hab 1:2  Lam 3:44  Matt 27:46  Ps 80:4 

9 He has closed my way with blocks of stone, he has obstructed my paths.
Isa 63:17  Hos 2:6  Isa 30:28  Lam 3:11 

10 For me he is a lurking bear, a lion in hiding.
Amos 5:18-20  Hos 5:14  Hos 6:1  Hos 13:7-8  Isa 38:13  Job 10:16  Ps 10:9

Lam 3:5  Lam 3:15  Jer 9:15  Job 7:7  Neh 9:32  Ps 89:47  Ps 89:50 

20 My heart dwells on this continually and sinks within me.
Ps 42:5-6  Ps 42:11  Job 21:6  Ps 43:5  Ps 44:25  Ps 146:8 

21 This is what I shall keep in mind and so regain some hope:
Ps 130:7  Hab 2:3  Lam 3:24-29  Ps 77:7-11  Ps 119:81 

22 Surely Yahweh's mercies are not over, his deeds of faithful love not exhausted;
Ps 86:15  Neh 9:31  Ps 78:38  Luke 1:50  Mal 3:6  Mic 7:18-19  Ps 106:45 

23 every morning they are renewed; great is his faithfulness!
Ps 30:5  Heb 10:23  Isa 33:2  Zeph 3:5  Heb 6:18  Ps 89:33  Ps 146:6 

24 'Yahweh is all I have,' I say to myself, 'and so I shall put my hope in him.'
Ps 16:5  Ps 73:26  Jer 10:16  Jer 51:19  Lam 3:21  Ps 33:18  Ps 142:5

Eccl 12:1  Ps 90:12  Ps 94:12  Ps 119:71  Heb 12:5-12  Matt 11:29-30 

28 to sit in solitude and silence when it weighs heavy,
Jer 15:17  Lam 2:10  Ps 39:9  Ps 102:7 

29 to lay one's head in the dust -- maybe there is hope-
Job 40:4  2Chr 33:12  Ezek 16:63  Jer 31:17  Job 42:5-6  Joel 2:14  Jonah 3:9 

30 to offer one's cheek to the striker, to have one's fill of disgrace!
Isa 50:6  Job 16:10  Matt 5:39  2Cor 11:20  Matt 26:67  Ps 69:20  Ps 123:3

Isa 54:7-10  Ps 77:7  Ps 94:14  Jer 32:40  Rom 11:1-6  1Sam 12:22  Isa 57:16 

32 If he brings grief, he will have pity out of the fullness of his faithful love,
Hos 11:8  Ps 78:38  Ps 106:43-45  2Kgs 13:23  Exod 2:23  Exod 3:7  Jer 31:20 

33 for it is not for his own pleasure that he torments and grieves the human race.

35 when human rights are overridden in defiance of the Most High,

36 when someone is cheated of justice, does not the Lord see it?
Hab 1:13  2Sam 11:27  Isa 59:15  Jer 22:3 

37 Who has only to speak and it is so done? Who commands, if not the Lord?
Ps 33:9-11  Isa 46:10  Dan 4:35  Prov 16:9  Prov 19:21  Prov 21:30  Eph 1:11 

38 From where, if not from the mouth of the Most High, do evil and good come?
Isa 45:7  Job 2:10  Amos 3:6  Jer 32:42  Ps 75:7  Prov 29:26 

39 Why then should anyone complain? Better to be bold against one's sins.
