10 Even if my father and mother abandon me, the LORD will hold me close.11 Teach me how to live, O LORD. Lead me along the right path, for my enemies are waiting for me.12 Do not let me fall into their hands. For they accuse me of things I've never done; with every breath they threaten me with violence.13 Yet I am confident I will see the LORD's goodness while I am here in the land of the living.14 Wait patiently for the LORD. Be brave and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the LORD.
“For me, the greatest blessing of the NLT is how it opens up the meaning and impact of the Scriptures to people. I think it is a wonderful translation, and a gift to the Church.”
