In Hope. Of Solomon.
Happy the man whose heart is set to call upon the name of the Lord; 2When he makes mention of the name of the Lord, he will be saved. (3) 2His ways are guided by the Lord, And the works of his hands are protected by the Lord his God. (4) 3His soul will not be disturbed with the sight of evil dreams: (5) When he crosses rivers, and when the seas toss, he will not be dismayed. (6) 4He arose from his sleep and blessed the name of the Lord: (7) In peacefulness of heart he sang to the name of his God; 5And he entreated the Lord for all his household. (8) And the Lord hears 1 Lit. ‘heard’. the prayer of everyone who is in fear of God: The Lord grants every request of the soul that hopes upon him. (9) Blessed is the Lord who acts mercifully to those who love him in truth.
1 Lit. ‘heard’.
