22 Because of the Lord’s great lover we are not consumed,s

for his compassions never fail.t

23 They are new every morning;

great is your faithfulness.u

24 I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion;v

therefore I will wait for him.”

25 The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him,

to the one who seeks him;w

26 it is good to wait quietlyx

for the salvation of the Lord.y

27 It is good for a man to bear the yoke

while he is young.

28 Let him sit alone in silence,z

for the Lord has laid it on him.

29 Let him bury his face in the dusta

there may yet be hope.b

30 Let him offer his cheek to one who would strike him,c

and let him be filled with disgrace.d

31 For no one is cast off

by the Lord forever.e

32 Though he brings grief, he will show compassion,

so great is his unfailing love.f

33 For he does not willingly bring affliction

or grief to anyone.g
