Ps.71:18a  O what troubles and adversities hast thou shewn me, and yet didst thou turn and refresh me.
Ps.16:10  Wherefore my heart was glad, and my glory rejoiced: my flesh also shall rest in hope.
Ps.119:5  O that my ways were made so direct : that I might keep thy statutes!
Ps.51:13  Then shall I teach thy ways unto the wicked: and sinners shall be converted unto thee.
Ps.144:15  Happy are the people that are in such a case: yea, blessed are the people
who have the Lord for their God.
