He sent from above, he took me, he drew me out of many waters.
He brought me up . . . out of an horrible pit, out of the miry clay, and set my feet upon a rock, [and] established my goings.–You [hath he quickened], who were dead in trespasses and sins; wherein in time past ye walked according to the course of this world. . . . We all had our conversation in times past in the lusts of our flesh.
Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer. From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed.– Out of the belly of hell cried I, [and] thou heardest my voice. For thou hadst cast me into the deep, in the midst of the seas; and the floods compassed me about: all thy billows and thy waves passed over me.–We went through fire and through water: but thou broughtest us out into a wealthy [place].
When thou passest through the waters, I [will be] with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee.
