I cling to you; your right hand upholds me

“I am with you to rescue and save you,” declares the Lord. … “For I am with you and will save you.”

Can plunder be taken from warriors, or captives be rescued from the fierce? … But this is what the Lord says: “Yes, captives will be taken from warriors, and plunder retrieved from the fierce; I will contend with those who contend with you, and your children I will save. … Then all mankind will know that I, the Lord, am your Savior, your Redeemer, the Mighty One of Jacob.” … Save us and help us with your right hand, that those you love may be delivered. … So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are—yet he did not sin. … Because he himself suffered when he was tempted, he is able to help those who are being tempted.

The Lord makes firm the steps of the one who delights in him; though he may stumble, he will not fall, for the Lord upholds him with his hand. … You uphold me and set me in your presence forever. … The Lord upholds all who fall and lifts up all who are bowed down.

You make your saving help my shield, and your right hand sustains me; your help has made me great.
