18So I say, “My splendor is gone and all that I had hoped from the LORD .”

19I remember my affliction and my wandering, the bitterness and the gall.

20I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me.

21Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope:

22Because of the LORD ’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail.

23They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

24I say to myself, “The LORD is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”

25The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him;

26it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD .
