He who sits on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” He said, “Write, for these words of God are faithful and true.”
This is my comfort in my affliction, for your word has revived me.
Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time,
casting all your worries on him, because he cares for you.
I love Yahweh, because he listens to my voice, and my cries for mercy.
Because he has turned his ear to me, therefore I will call on him as long as I live.
Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
Cast your burden on Yahweh and he will sustain you. He will never allow the righteous to be moved.
But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things, and will remind you of all that I said to you.
Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you; not as the world gives, I give to you. Don’t let your heart be troubled, neither let it be fearful.
For as the sufferings of Christ abound to us, even so our comfort also abounds through Christ.
Therefore you now have sorrow, but I will see you again, and your heart will rejoice, and no one will take your joy away from you.
Yahweh himself is who goes before you. He will be with you. He will not fail you nor forsake you. Don’t be afraid. Don’t be discouraged.”
Therefore if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old things have passed away. Behold, all things have become new.
16 I will pray to the Father, and he will give you another Counselor, that he may be with you forever:
17 the Spirit of truth, whom the world can’t receive, for it doesn’t see him and doesn’t know him. You know him, for he lives with you and will be in you.
18 I will not leave you orphans. I will come to you.
For his anger is but for a moment. His favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may stay for the night, but joy comes in the morning.
For he has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted, Neither has he hidden his face from him; but when he cried to him, he heard.
Yahweh will also be a high tower for the oppressed; a high tower in times of trouble.
Yahweh is good, a stronghold in the day of trouble; and he knows those who take refuge in him.
48 I reach out my hands for your commandments, which I love. I will meditate on your statutes.
49 Remember your word to your servant, because you gave me hope.
50 This is my comfort in my affliction, for your word has revived me.
51 The arrogant mock me excessively, but I don’t swerve from your law.
52 I remember your ordinances of old, Yahweh, and have comforted myself.
For I know the thoughts that I think toward you,” says Yahweh, “thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you hope and a future.
You count my wanderings. You put my tears into your container. Aren’t they in your book?
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
You, who have shown us many and bitter troubles, you will let me live. You will bring us up again from the depths of the earth.
Increase my honor and comfort me again.
One thing I have asked of Yahweh, that I will seek after: that I may dwell in Yahweh’s house all the days of my life, to see Yahweh’s beauty, and to inquire in his temple.
For in the day of trouble, he will keep me secretly in his pavilion. In the secret place of his tabernacle, he will hide me. He will lift me up on a rock.
