The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears them;      he delivers them from all their troubles. The LORD is close to the brokenhearted      and saves those who are crushed in spirit. A righteous man may have many troubles,      but the LORD delivers him from them all; he protects all his bones, not one of them will be broken. Evil will slay the wicked;      the foes of the righteous will be condemned. The LORD redeems his servants;      no one will be condemned who takes refuge in him. Psalm 34: 17-22
