you were too strong for me, and you prevailed.
All day long I am an object of laughter;
everyone mocks me.
8 Whenever I speak, I must cry out,
violence and outrage I proclaim;
The word of the Lord has brought me
reproach and derision all day long.
9 I say I will not mention him,
I will no longer speak in his name.
But then it is as if fire is burning in my heart,
imprisoned in my bones;
I grow weary holding back,
From whence shall come my help?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the maker of heaven and earth.
or your guardian to sleep.
4 Behold, the guardian of Israel
never slumbers nor sleeps.
5 The Lord is your guardian;
the Lord is your shade
at your right hand.
6 By day the sun will not strike you,
nor the moon by night.
7 The Lord will guard you from all evil;
he will guard your soul.
8 The Lord will guard your coming and going
both now and forever.
