About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them.
But I call to God, and the LORD will save me.
I complain and groan morning, noon, and night, and He hears my voice.
Though many are against me, He will redeem me from my battle unharmed.
Rest in God alone, my soul, for my hope comes from Him.
He alone is my rock and my salvation, my stronghold; I will not be shaken.
My salvation and glory depend on God; my strong rock, my refuge, is in God.
Trust in Him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts before Him. God is our refuge. Selah
But as for me-- poor and in pain-- let Your salvation protect me, God.
I will praise God's name with song and exalt Him with thanksgiving.
My accusers will be clothed with disgrace; they will wear their shame like a cloak.
I will fervently thank the LORD with my mouth; I will praise Him in the presence of many.
For He stands at the right hand of the needy, to save him from those who would condemn him.
Sing to the LORD! Praise the LORD, for He rescues the life of the needy from the hand of evil people.
They, however, were filled with rage and started discussing with one another what they might do to Jesus.
During those days He went out to the mountain to pray and spent all night in prayer to God.
For we don't want you to be unaware, brothers, of our affliction that took place in the province of Asia: we were completely overwhelmed-- beyond our strength-- so that we even despaired of life.
However, we personally had a death sentence within ourselves so that we would not trust in ourselves, but in God who raises the dead.
He has delivered us from such a terrible death, and He will deliver us; we have placed our hope in Him that He will deliver us again.
And you can join in helping with prayer for us, so that thanks may be given by many on our behalf for the gift that came to us through [the prayers of] many.
Give thanks in everything, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
But the Lord stood with me and strengthened me, so that the proclamation might be fully made through me, and all the Gentiles might hear. So I was rescued from the lion's mouth.
The Lord will rescue me from every evil work and will bring me safely into His heavenly kingdom. To Him be the glory forever and ever! Amen.
Then Hezekiah prayed before the LORD: "LORD God of Israel who is enthroned [above] the cherubim, You are God-- You alone-- of all the kingdoms of the earth. You made the heavens and the earth.
Now, LORD our God, please save us from his hand so that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that You are the LORD God-- You alone."
You alone are the LORD. You created the heavens, the highest heavens with all their host, the earth and all that is on it, the seas and all that is in them. You give life to all of them, and the heavenly host worships You.
Happy is the one whose help is the God of Jacob, whose hope is in the LORD his God,
I-- I am the One who comforts you. Who are you that you should fear man who dies, or a son of man who is given up like grass?
But the LORD is the true God; He is the living God and eternal King. The earth quakes at His wrath, and the nations cannot endure His rage.
You are to say this to them: The gods that did not make the heavens and the earth will perish from the earth and from under these heavens.
He made the earth by His power, established the world by His wisdom, and spread out the heavens by His understanding.
Ah, Lord God! You Yourself made the heavens and earth by Your great power and with Your outstretched arm. Nothing is too difficult for You!
