Because he hath inclined his ear unto me, therefore will I call upon him as long as I live.
The sorrows of death compassed me, and the pains of hell gat hold upon meL I found trouble and sorrow.

Gracious is the LORD, and righteous; yea, our God is merciful.
The LORD preserveth the simple; I was brought low, and he helped me. “
