26 It is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the LORD. 27 It is good for people to bear the yoke while they are young. 28 Let them sit alone in silence, for the LORD has laid it on them. 29 Let them bury their faces in the dust – there may yet be hope. 30 Let them offer their cheeks to one who would strike them, and let them be filled with disgrace. 31 For people are not cast off by the Lord forever. 32 Though he brings grief, he will show compassion, so great is his unfailing love. 33 For he does not willingly bring affliction or grief to any human being. 34 To crush underfoot all prisoners in the land 35 To deny people their rights before the Most High 36 To deprive them of justice – would not the Lord see such things? 37 Who can speak and have it happen if the Lord has not decreed it? 38 Is it not from the mouth of the Most High that both calamities and good things come? 39 Why should the living complain when punished for their sins? 40 Let us examine our ways and test them, and let us return to the LORD. (NIV)
