"Because of the devastation of the afflicted, because of the groaning of the needy, Now I will arise," says the LORD; "I will set him in the safety for which he longs."
For He has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted; Nor has He hidden His face from him; But when he cried to Him for help, He heard.
God makes a home for the lonely; He leads out the prisoners into prosperity, Only the rebellious dwell in a parched land.
Sing to the LORD, praise the LORD! For He has delivered the soul of the needy one From the hand of evildoers.
