Read Psalm 22:23-31
23 “Praise him, you servants of the Lord!
Honour him, you descendants of Jacob!
Worship him, you people of Israel!
24 He does not neglect the poor or ignore their suffering;
he does not turn away from them,
but answers when they call for help.”
25 In the full assembly I will praise you for what you have done;
in the presence of those who worship you
I will offer the sacrifices I promised.
26 The poor will eat as much as they want;
those who come to the Lord will praise him.
May they prosper for ever!
27 All nations will remember the Lord.
From every part of the world they will turn to him;
all races will worship him.
28 The Lord is king,
and he rules the nations.
29 All proud people will bow down to him;l
all mortals will bow down before him.
30 Future generations will serve him;
they will speak of the Lord to the coming generation.
31 People not yet born will be told:
“The Lord saved his people.”
The first part of the Psalm speaks of severe struggle. 22-31 celebrates the way in which God rescues those who struggle.
"He does not neglect the poor or ignore their suffering; he does not turn away from them, but answers when they call for help." - Psalm 22:24
