Esperar no Senhor

I hope for the Lord, my soul doth hope, and for his word do I wait.

My soul waiteth for the Lord, more than they that watch for the morning expect the morning.

Salmos 130:5,6

1 To the chief musician, a psalm of David. I had waited patiently for the Lord, when he inclined himself unto me, and heard my cry.

2 And he brought me up out of the noiseful deep, out of the miry clay, and he set up my feet upon a rock, making firm my steps.

3 And he placed in my mouth a new song, a praise unto our God: many will see it, and fear; and they will trust in the Lord.

4 Happy is the man that maketh the Lord his trust, and turneth not unto the proud, nor such as stray aside unto lies.

5 Many things hast thou done, O Lord my God; thy wonderful deeds and thy thoughts toward us––there is none to be compared unto thee––will I tell and speak of, though they are too numerous to be counted.

6 Sacrifice and meat–offering thou desirest not––ears hast thou hollowed out unto me––burnt–offering and sin–offering thou demandest not.

7 Then said I, Lo, I come: in the roll of the book it is written down for me;

8 To fulfill thy will, O my God, do I desire; and thy law is within my heart.

9 I announce thy righteousness in the great assembly: lo, I will not refrain my lips, O Lord, thou well knowest it.

10 Thy righteousness have I never hidden within my heart; thy faithfulness and thy salvation have I spoken of openly: I have not concealed thy kindness and thy truth before the great assembly.

11 Do thou, O Lord, not withhold thy mercies from me: let thy kindness and thy truth continually watch over me.

12 For evils without number have compassed me about; my iniquities have overtaken me, so that I am not able to see: they are more numerous than the hairs of my head; and my courage hath forsaken me.

13 Be pleased, O Lord, to deliver me; O Lord, hasten to my help.

14 May those be made ashamed and put to the blush together that seek after my soul to take her away: let them be driven backward and be confounded, that wish for my mishap.

Salmos 40:1-14

20 Our soul waiteth for the Lord: our help and our shield is he.

21 For in him shall our heart rejoice: because in his holy name have we trusted.

22 Let thy kindness, O Lord, be upon us, even as we hope in thee.

Salmos 33:20-22

Yea, in God hope in silence, my soul; for from him is my expectation.

Salmos 62:5

Trust in the Lord with all thy heart: and upon thy own understanding do not rely.

In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he will make level thy paths.

Provérbios 3:5,6

And therefore will the Lord wait, to be gracious unto you, and therefore will he exalt himself, to have mercy upon you; for a God of justice is the Lord: happy are all those that wait for him.

Isaías 30:18

Yet they that wait upon the Lord shall acquire new strength, they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk, and not become faint.

Isaías 40:31

1 Of David. The Lord is my light and my salvation; of whom shall I be afraid? the Lord is the fortress of my life; of whom shall I have dread?

2 When evil–doers come near against me to eat up my flesh, my assailants and my enemies at me: then do they stumble and fall.

3 If an army should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: if war should arise against me, even then will I have trust.

4 One thing have I asked of the Lord, that I will seek for: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to behold the loveliness of the Lord, and to be every morning early in his temple.

5 For he will hide me in his pavilion on the day of evil; he will conceal me in the secret of his tabernacle; upon a rock will he place me high.

6 And now will my head be lifted up above my enemies all round about me; and I will sacrifice in his tabernacle sacrifices of joy: I will sing, and I will triumphantly play unto the Lord.

7 Hear, O Lord, my voice, when I call, and be gracious unto me, and answer me.

8 Of thee, said my heart, "Seek ye my presence": thy presence, Lord, will I seek.

9 Hide then not thy face from me; reject not in anger thy servant, thou who hast been my help: cast me not off, nor forsake me, O God of my salvation.

10 For my father and my mother have forsaken me; but the Lord will take me up.

11 Point me out thy way, O Lord! and guide me on a level path, because of those that regard me enviously.

12 Give me not up to the revengeful desire of my assailants; for there are risen up against me false witnesses, and such as utter violence.

13 Unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of life––

14 Wait on the Lord; be strong, and let thy heart be of good courage; and only wait on the Lord.

Salmos 27:1-14

Unless I had believed to see the goodness of the Lord in the land of life––

Wait on the Lord; be strong, and let thy heart be of good courage; and only wait on the Lord.

Salmos 27:13,14

Wait on the Lord; be strong, and let thy heart be of good courage; and only wait on the Lord.

Salmos 27:14

Wait on the Lord, and keep his way, and he will exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, shalt thou look on.

Salmos 37:34
