18  I wwait for your salvation, O Lord.


11  You make known to me cthe path of life;

in your presence there is dfullness of joy;

at your right hand are epleasures forevermore.


15  As for me, I shall cbehold your face in righteousness;

when I dawake, I shall be esatisfied with your likeness.


Even though I kwalk through the valley of lthe shadow of death,1

I will mfear no evil,

for nyou are with me;

your orod and your staff,

they comfort me.


Indeed, we felt that we had received the sentence of death. But that was to make us nrely not on ourselves obut on God pwho raises the dead.


Yes, we are of good courage, and we uwould rather be away from the body and at home with the Lord.


18 The Lord will rescue me from every evil deed and bring me safely into his heavenly kingdom. tTo him be the glory forever and ever. Amen.


10  vWho can count the dust of Jacob

or number the fourth part1 of Israel?

Let me die wthe death of the upright,

and let my end be like his!


25  For I vknow that my wRedeemer lives,

and at the last he will stand upon the xearth.1

26  And after my skin has been thus destroyed,

yet in2 my flesh I shall ysee God,

27  whom I shall see for myself,

and my eyes shall behold, and not zanother.

My heart afaints within me!
