Answer me when I call, O Elohim of my righteousness!
You gave relief to me when I was in distress; Show
favor to me, and hear my prayer. 2 Till when, O you
sons of men, Would you turn my esteem to shame,
Would you love emptiness, seek falsehood? Selah. 3
But know that Yahuah has separated a kind one for
Himself; Yahuah hears when I call to Him. 4 Tremble,
and do not sin.
3 O Yahuah, in the morning You hear my voice; I
present myself to You in the morning, And I look
up. 4 For You are not an El taking delight in
wrong, Nor does evil dwell with You. 5 The
boasters do not stand before Your eyes; You hate
all workers of wickedness.
Depart from me, all you workers of wickedness; For
Yahuah has heard the voice of my weeping. 9 Yahuah
has heard my pleading; Yahuah receives my prayer.
In my distress I called upon Yahuah, And to my
Elohim I cried; He heard my voice from His Hekal,
And my cry went before Him, into His ears.
And Yonah prayed to Yahuah his Elohim from the
stomach of the fish. 2 And he said, “I called to
Yahuah because of my distress, and He answered me.
From the stomach of the grave I cried, and You
heard my voice.
1 Kepha 3:7, 12
7 In the same way, husbands, live understandingly
together, giving respect to the wife, as to the
weaker vessel, and as being heirs together of the
favor of life, so that your prayers are not
hindered. 12“Because the eyes of Yahuah are on the
righteous, and his ears are open to their prayers,
but the face of Yahuah is against those who do
Tehillim 39:12-13, 40:1
“Hear my prayer, O Yahuah, And give ear to my cry;
Do not be silent at my tears; For I am a stranger
with You, A sojourner, as all my fathers were. 13
“Look away from me, That I might brighten up,
Before I go away and am no more.” 40:1 I waited,
waited for Yahuah; And He inclined to me, and
heard my cry.
For You, O Elohim, have heard my vows; You have
given me the inheritance Of those who fear Your
Waters flowed over my head; I said, “I am cut
off!” 55 I called on Your Name, O Yahuah, from the
lowest pit. 56 You have heard my voice, Do not
hide Your ear from my groaning, From my outcry! 57
You drew near on the day I called on You; You
said, “Do not fear!” 58 O Yahuah, You did plead
the case for my being; You have redeemed my life.
2 Shemu'el 22:7
“In my distress I called upon Yahuah, And to my
Elohim I cried. And from His Hekal He heard my
voice, And my cry was in His ears.
WHEN HE DOES NOT
“They have turned back to the crookednesses of their
forefathers who refused to hear My words, and they
have gone after other mighty ones to serve them. The
house of Yisra’el and the house of Yehudah have
broken My covenant I made with their fathers.” 11
Therefore thus said Yahuah, “See, I am bringing evil
on them which they are unable to escape. Then they
shall cry out to Me, but I shall not listen to them
And He said to me, “Have you seen, O son of man?
Is it a small matter to the house of Yehudah to do
the abominations which they have done here? For
they have filled the land with violence, and turn
back to provoke Me. And see, they are putting the
branch to My nose. 18 “Therefore I shall indeed
deal in wrath. My eye shall not pardon nor would I
spare. And they shall cry in My ears with a loud
voice, but I shall not hear them.”
“And they made their hearts like flint against
hearing the Torah, and the words, which Yahuah of
hosts had sent by His Spirit through the former
prophets. Therefore great wrath came from Yahuah
of hosts. 13 “And it came to be: as He called and
they did not hear, so let them call, but I shall
not hear,” said Yahuah of hosts.
Do not be silent, O Elohim of my praise! 2 For the
mouth of the wrong And the mouth of the deceiver
Have opened against me; They have spoken against
me with a false tongue. 3 They have surrounded me
with words of hatred, And they attack me without a
cause. 4 In return for my love they accuse me,
While I am in prayer. 5 And they repay me evil for
tov, And hatred for my love. 6 Appoint over him
one who is wrong, And let an accuser stand at his
right hand. 7 When he is judged, let him be found
wrong, And let his prayer become sin.
