    his mercies never come to an end;

    “therefore I will hope in him.”

40Let us test and examine our ways,

55“I called on your name, O Lord,

56 you heard my plea, ‘Do not close
    your ear to my cry for help!’
57 You came near when I called on you;
    you said, ‘Do not fear!’

58“You have taken up my cause, O Lord;
    you have redeemed my life.
