Bible: Lam 3:21-32

3:21 But this I call 1  to mind; 2 

therefore I have hope:

3:22 ח (Khet)

The Lord’s loyal kindness 3  never ceases; 4 

his compassions 5  never end.

3:23 They are fresh 6  every morning;

your faithfulness is abundant! 7 

3:24My portion is the Lord,” I have said to myself, 8 

so I will put my hope in him.

3:25 ט (Tet)

The Lord is good to those who trust 9  in him,

to the one 10  who seeks him.

3:26 It is good to wait patiently 11 

for deliverance from the Lord. 12 

3:27 It is good for a man 13 

to bear 14  the yoke 15  while he is young. 16 

3:28 י (Yod)

Let a person 17  sit alone in silence,

when the Lord 18  is disciplining him. 19 

3:29 Let him bury his face in the dust; 20 

perhaps there is hope.

3:30 Let him offer his cheek to the one who hits him; 21 

let him have his fill of insults.

3:31 כ (Kaf)

For the Lord 22  will not

reject us forever. 23 

3:32 Though he causes us 24  grief, he then has compassion on us 25 

according to the abundance of his loyal kindness. 26
