NLTNew Living Translation
17The Lord hears his people when they call to him for help.
He rescues them from all their troubles.
18The Lord is close to the brokenhearted;
he rescues those whose spirits are crushed.
19The righteous person faces many troubles,
but the Lord comes to the rescue each time.
20For the Lord protects the bones of the righteous;
not one of them is broken!
21Calamity will surely destroy the wicked,
and those who hate the righteous will be punished.
22But the Lord will redeem those who serve him.
No one who takes refuge in him will be condemned.
