“Truly the hills are a delusion, the orgies on the mountains. Truly in the Lord our God is the salvation of Israel.”—The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliverer, my God, my rock, in whom I take refuge, my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.—“Shout, and sing for joy, O inhabitant of Zion, for great in your midst is the Holy One of Israel.”
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and delivers them…. When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears and delivers them out of all their troubles.—“The eternal God is your dwelling place, and underneath are the everlasting arms.”—So we can confidently say, “The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?”—For who is God, but the Lord? And who is a rock, except our God?—the God who equipped me with strength and made my way blameless.
But by the grace of God I am what I am.
If we say we have no sin, we deceive ourselves, and the truth is not in us.—“None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands;… All have turned aside; together they have become worthless.”
For you were straying like sheep, but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls.—I have gone astray like a lost sheep; seek your servant, for I do not forget your commandments.
He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name's sake.
“My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they will never perish, and no one will snatch them out of my hand.”
“What man of you, having a hundred sheep, if he has lost one of them, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country, and go after the one that is lost, until he finds it?”

the orgies1 on the mountains.
