Psalm 31 KJV

King James Version, Holy Bible

In thee, O Lord, do I put my trust; let me never be ashamed: deliver me in thy righteousness.

Bow down thine ear to me; deliver me speedily: be thou my strong rock, for an house of defence to save me.

For thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for thy name's sake lead me, and guide me.

Pull me out of the net that they have laid privily for me: for thou art my strength.

Into thine hand I commit my spirit: thou hast redeemed me, O Lord God of truth.

I have hated them that regard lying vanities: but I trust in the Lord.

More Psalms Chapter 31 (Old Testament)

I will be glad and rejoice in thy mercy: for thou hast considered my trouble; thou hast known my soul in adversities;

And hast not shut me up into the hand of the enemy: thou hast set my feet in a large room.

Have mercy upon me, O Lord, for I am in trouble: mine eye is consumed with grief, yea, my soul and my belly.

10 For my life is spent with grief, and my years with sighing: my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are consumed.

11 I was a reproach among all mine enemies, but especially among my neighbours, and a fear to mine acquaintance: they that did see me without fled from me.

12 I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind: I am like a broken vessel.

More Psalms Chapter 31 (Old Testament)

13 For I have heard the slander of many: fear was on every side: while they took counsel together against me, they devised to take away my life.

14 But I trusted in thee, O Lord: I said, Thou art my God.

15 My times are in thy hand: deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.

16 Make thy face to shine upon thy servant: save me for thy mercies' sake.

17 Let me not be ashamed, O Lord; for I have called upon thee: let the wicked be ashamed, and let them be silent in the grave.

18 Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.

More Psalms Chapter 31 

19 Oh how great is thy goodness, which thou hast laid up for them that fear thee; which thou hast wrought for them that trust in thee before the sons of men!

20 Thou shalt hide them in the secret of thy presence from the pride of man: thou shalt keep them secretly in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.

21 Blessed be the Lord: for he hath shewed me his marvellous kindness in a strong city.

22 For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before thine eyes: nevertheless thou heardest the voice of my supplications when I cried unto thee.

23 O love the Lord, all ye his saints: for the Lord preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.

24 Be of good courage, and he shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the Lord.

More Insight

What a great God we serve! When you think about the goodness of the Lord Jesus, and what God our Father did by sending Him you have to think about the awesomeness of God. The mercy of God was on display when God sent Him.

You know, sometimes we can come away from life thinking that we're all alone, but the scripture from Psalm 31 shares with us that God is a refuge to us. We can trust Him and know that he is a faithful God, and that His righteousness endures forever. We can trust Him and have good courage, knowing that it's in God's presence that there is fullness of joy. We can trust Him, knowing that His mercy will never fail us.

We can trust Him knowing that His steadfast love and his great strength - His Word- is a shield and buckler for us. We can trust Him in knowing that by His grace, we have strength.

We are free from shame and we have security and refuge in Him.

Psalm 31 is one of those psalms that illustrates to us the grace of God and the strength of God and the security of God. Many times it can feel as if we're sinking never to rise again. But the psalmist says, "since you are my rock and my fortress for the sake of your name, lead and guide me. "

And we see this in another text (Psalm 23) where the scripture says that "He leadest me beside the still waters .... He leads me in the paths of righteousness for His namesake."

God connects us to Himself by His name.

Ephesians 3:14-16   14 For this cause I bow my knees unto the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,15 Of whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named,16 That he would grant you, according to the riches of his glory, to be strengthened with might by his Spirit in the inner man;

And the scripture says that He has given us His name. And so we are connected to God and the protection and the mercy and faithfulness of God through Christ Jesus. Not only is He faithful, but we are connected to His faithfulness. Not only is He merciful, but we are connected to His mercy.

Besides that, King David says that "his times are in His hands", and "deliver him from the hand of his enemies and from those that persecute him. "

The Bible says that those who live godly shall suffer persecution. And so we know that there are enemies that exist in this world that seek to bring us down and seek to destroy us, but we have a living hope and the strong security in God that regardless of what may arise, we shall be victorious.

It is our prayer, that shame will be far from you for you put your trust in the Lord for the scriptures declare that those who put their trust in the Lord shall never be put to shame. May His kindness, His might, and His goodness be your ever-portion, in Jesus' mighty name. Amen.
