“Let the lying lips be put to silence; which speak grievous things proudly and contemptuously against the righteous.
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!
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.
Blessed be the LORD: for He hath shewed me His marvellous kindness in a strong city. 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.
O love the LORD, all ye His saints: for the LORD preserveth the faithful, and plentifully rewardeth the proud doer.
Be of good courage, and He shall strengthen your heart, all ye that hope in the LORD.” Psalm 31:18-24 (KJB)
