The Lord is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in him,
and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth;
and with my song will I praise him.
The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart;
and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.
He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.
A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance:
but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken.
For thus saith the Lord God, the Holy One of Israel;
In returning and rest shall ye be saved;
in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not.
Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, both young men and old together:
for I will turn their mourning into joy, and will comfort them,
and make them rejoice from their sorrow.
