Shout for joy, you heavens; rejoice, you earth; burst into song, you mountains! For the LORD comforts his people and will have compassion on his afflicted ones. … Surely God is my salvation; I will trust and not be afraid. The LORD, the LORD himself, is my strength and my defense; he has become my salvation. … He is my God, and I will praise him and I will exalt him. … The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him.
A people saved by the LORD. He is your shield and helper and your glorious sword. … You are my strength, I watch for you; you, God, are my fortress. … Therefore I glory in Christ Jesus in my service to God. … We who serve God by his Spirit, who boast in Christ Jesus, and who put no confidence in the flesh. … Not only is this so, but we also boast in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation. … I will rejoice in the LORD, I will be joyful in God my Savior.
But you, LORD, do not be far from me. You are my strength. … LORD, my strength and my fortress, my refuge in time of distress. … Sing for joy to God our strength; shout aloud to the God of Jacob! … My God has been my strength. … The LORD is my light and my salvation—whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life—of whom shall I be afraid? … I love you, LORD, my strength.
