And therefore I have hope

"I remeber my affliction and my wandering,
the bitterness and the gall.
I well remember them,
and my soul is downcast within me.
Yet this I recall to my mind
and therefore I have hope:

Because of Yahweh's great love we are not consumed,
for His compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is Your faithfulness.
I said to myself, 'Yahweh is my portion;
therefore I will wait for Him.'

Yahweh is good to those whose hope is in Him;
to the one who seeks Him;
it is good to wait quietly
for the salvation of Yahweh."

Lamentations 3:19-26
