I call out to the Lord, and he answers me from his holy mountain.
Answer me when I call to you, my righteous God. Give me relief from my distress; have mercy on me and hear my prayer. … I call on the Lord in my distress, and he answers me. … LORD my God, I called to you for help and you healed me. … You heard my cry for mercy when I called to you for help. … You answered me. … When I called, you answered me; you made me bold and stouthearted. … I will give you thanks, for you answered me; you have become my salvation.
In my distress I called to the Lord; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard my voice; my cry came before him, into his ears. … Praise be to the Lord, for he has heard my cry for mercy. … Away from me, all you who do evil, for the Lord has heard my weeping. The Lord has heard my cry for mercy; the Lord accepts my prayer.
I sought the LORD, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame. This poor man called, and the LORD heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles.
I waited patiently for the LORD; he turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; he set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God.
