Antiphon: Cast your care upon the LORD, who will give you support
18 At dusk, dawn, and noon I will grieve and complain, and my prayer will be heard. g
19 He will redeem my soul in peace from those who war against me, though there are many who oppose me.
20 God, who sits enthroned forever, will hear me and afflict them.
For they will not mend their ways; they have no fear of God.
21 He stretched out his hand at his friends and broke his covenant.
22 Softer than butter is his speech, but war is in his heart. Smoother than oil are his words, but they are unsheathed swords.
23 Cast your care upon the LORD, who will give you support. He will never allow the righteous to stumble
