Cast Your Burden on the Lord

Psalm 55 (ESV) Selected Verses

To the choirmaster: with (A)stringed instruments. A Maskil[a] of David.

55 (B)Give ear to my prayer, O God,
    and hide not yourself from my plea for mercy!
Attend to me, and answer me;
    I am restless (C)in my complaint and I (D)moan,
because of the noise of the enemy,
    because of the oppression of the wicked.
For they (E)drop trouble upon me,
    and in anger they bear a grudge against me.

12 For it is not an enemy who taunts me—
    then I could bear it;
it is not an adversary who (O)deals insolently with me—
    then I could hide from him.
13 (P)But it is you, a man, my equal,
    my companion, my familiar friend.
14 We used to take sweet counsel together;
    within God’s house we walked in (Q)the throng.

19 God will give ear and humble them,
    he who is (X)enthroned from of old, Selah
because they do not (Y)change
    and do not fear God.

22 (AD)Cast your burden on the Lord,
    and he will sustain you;
(AE)he will never permit
    the righteous to be moved.
