Psalm 31 *Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

Chapter 31 *Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

א לַמְנַצֵּחַ, מִזְמוֹר לְדָוִד. 1

For the Leader. A Psalm of David.

ב בְּךָ-יְהוָה חָסִיתִי, אַל-אֵבוֹשָׁה לְעוֹלָם; בְּצִדְקָתְךָ פַלְּטֵנִי. 2

In thee, O jehovah, have I taken refuge; let me never be ashamed; deliver me in Thy righteousness.

*Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

ג הַטֵּה אֵלַי, אָזְנְךָ– מְהֵרָה הַצִּילֵנִי:

הֱיֵה לִי, לְצוּר-מָעוֹז–לְבֵית מְצוּדוֹת; לְהוֹשִׁיעֵנִי. 3

Incline Thine ear unto me, deliver me speedily; {N}

be Thou to me a rock of refuge, even a fortress of defence, to save me.

*Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

ד כִּי-סַלְעִי וּמְצוּדָתִי אָתָּה; וּלְמַעַן שִׁמְךָ, תַּנְחֵנִי וּתְנַהֲלֵנִי. 4

For Thou art my rock and my fortress; therefore for Thy name’s sake lead me and guide me.

*Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

ה תּוֹצִיאֵנִי–מֵרֶשֶׁת זוּ, טָמְנוּ לִי: כִּי-אַתָּה, מָעוּזִּי. 5

Bring me forth out of the net that they have hidden for me; for Thou art my stronghold.

*Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

ו בְּיָדְךָ, אַפְקִיד רוּחִי: פָּדִיתָ אוֹתִי יְהוָה–אֵל אֱמֶת. 6

Into Thy hand I commit my spirit; Thou hast redeemed me, O jehovah, Thou God of truth.

*Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

ז שָׂנֵאתִי, הַשֹּׁמְרִים הַבְלֵי-שָׁוְא; וַאֲנִי, אֶל-יְהוָה בָּטָחְתִּי. 7

I hate them that regard lying vanities; but I trust in jehovah.

*Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

ח אָגִילָה וְאֶשְׂמְחָה, בְּחַסְדֶּךָ:

אֲשֶׁר רָאִיתָ, אֶת-עָנְיִי; יָדַעְתָּ, בְּצָרוֹת נַפְשִׁי. 8

I will be glad and rejoice in Thy lovingkindness; {N}

for Thou hast seen mine affliction, Thou hast taken cognizance of the troubles of my soul,

*Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

ט וְלֹא הִסְגַּרְתַּנִי, בְּיַד-אוֹיֵב; הֶעֱמַדְתָּ בַמֶּרְחָב רַגְלָי. 9

And Thou hast not given me over into the hand of the enemy; Thou hast set my feet in a broad place.

*Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

י חָנֵּנִי יְהוָה, כִּי צַר-לִי:

עָשְׁשָׁה בְכַעַס עֵינִי; נַפְשִׁי וּבִטְנִי. 10

Be gracious unto me, O jehovah, for I am in distress; {N}

mine eye wasteth away with vexation, yea, my soul and my body.

*Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

יא כִּי כָלוּ בְיָגוֹן, חַיַּי– וּשְׁנוֹתַי בַּאֲנָחָה:

כָּשַׁל בַּעֲו‍ֹנִי כֹחִי; וַעֲצָמַי עָשֵׁשׁוּ. 11

For my life is spent in sorrow, and my years in sighing; {N}

my strength faileth because of mine iniquity, and my bones are wasted away.

*Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

יב מִכָּל-צֹרְרַי הָיִיתִי חֶרְפָּה, וְלִשְׁכֵנַי מְאֹד– וּפַחַד לִמְיֻדָּעָי:

רֹאַי בַּחוּץ– נָדְדוּ מִמֶּנִּי. 12

Because of all mine adversaries I am become a reproach, yea, unto my neighbours exceedingly, and a dread to mine acquaintance; {N}

they that see me without flee from me.

*Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

יג נִשְׁכַּחְתִּי, כְּמֵת מִלֵּב; הָיִיתִי, כִּכְלִי אֹבֵד. 13

I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind; I am like a useless vessel.

*Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

יד כִּי שָׁמַעְתִּי, דִּבַּת רַבִּים– מָגוֹר מִסָּבִיב:

בְּהִוָּסְדָם יַחַד עָלַי; לָקַחַת נַפְשִׁי זָמָמוּ. 14

For I have heard the whispering of many, terror on every side; {N}

while they took counsel together against me, they devised to take away my life.

*Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

טו וַאֲנִי, עָלֶיךָ בָטַחְתִּי יְהוָה; אָמַרְתִּי, אֱלֹהַי אָתָּה. 15

But as for me, I have trusted in Thee, O jehovah; I have said:

‘Thou art my God.’

*Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

טז בְּיָדְךָ עִתֹּתָי; הַצִּילֵנִי מִיַּד-אוֹיְבַי, וּמֵרֹדְפָי. 16

My times are in Thy hand; deliver me from the hand of mine enemies, and from them that persecute me.

*Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

יז הָאִירָה פָנֶיךָ, עַל-עַבְדֶּךָ; הוֹשִׁיעֵנִי בְחַסְדֶּךָ. 17

Make Thy face to shine upon Thy servant; save me in Thy lovingkindness.

*Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

יח יְהוָה–אַל-אֵבוֹשָׁה, כִּי קְרָאתִיךָ; יֵבֹשׁוּ רְשָׁעִים, יִדְּמוּ לִשְׁאוֹל. 18

O jehovah, let me not be ashamed, for I have called upon Thee; let the wicked be ashamed, let them be put to silence in the nether-world.

*Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

יט תֵּאָלַמְנָה, שִׂפְתֵי-שָׁקֶר: הַדֹּבְרוֹת עַל-צַדִּיק עָתָק–בְּגַאֲוָה וָבוּז. 19

Let the lying lips be dumb, which speak arrogantly against the righteous, with pride and contempt.

*Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

כ מָה רַב-טוּבְךָ, אֲשֶׁר-צָפַנְתָּ לִּירֵאֶיךָ:

פָּעַלְתָּ, לַחֹסִים בָּךְ; נֶגֶד, בְּנֵי אָדָם. 20

Oh how abundant is Thy goodness, which Thou hast laid up for them that fear Thee; {N}

which Thou hast wrought for them that take their refuge in Thee, in the sight of the sons of men!

*Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

כא תַּסְתִּירֵם, בְּסֵתֶר פָּנֶיךָ– מֵרֻכְסֵי-אִישׁ:

תִּצְפְּנֵם בְּסֻכָּה; מֵרִיב לְשֹׁנוֹת. 21

Thou hidest them in the covert of Thy presence from the plottings of man; {N}

Thou concealest them in a pavilion from the strife of tongues.

*Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

כב בָּרוּךְ יְהוָה: כִּי הִפְלִיא חַסְדּוֹ לִי, בְּעִיר מָצוֹר. 22

Blessed be jehovah; for He hath shown me His wondrous lovingkindness in an entrenched city.

*Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

כג וַאֲנִי, אָמַרְתִּי בְחָפְזִי– נִגְרַזְתִּי, מִנֶּגֶד עֵינֶיךָ:

אָכֵן–שָׁמַעְתָּ, קוֹל תַּחֲנוּנַי; בְּשַׁוְּעִי אֵלֶיךָ. 23

As for me, I said in my haste:

‘I am cut off from before Thine eyes’; {N}

nevertheless Thou heardest the voice of my supplications when I cried unto Thee.

*Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

כד אֶהֱבוּ אֶת-יְהוָה, כָּל-חֲסִידָיו:

אֱמוּנִים, נֹצֵר יְהוָה; וּמְשַׁלֵּם עַל-יֶתֶר, עֹשֵׂה גַאֲוָה. 24

O love jehovah, all ye His godly ones; {N}

jehovah preserveth the faithful, and plentifully repayeth him that acteth haughtily.

*Into Thy Hand I Commit My Spirit*

כה חִזְקוּ, וְיַאֲמֵץ לְבַבְכֶם– כָּל-הַמְיַחֲלִים, לַיהוָה. 25

Be strong, and let your heart take courage, all ye that wait for jehovah. {P}
