LXX 2 He has taken me, and led me away into darkness, and not light. NIV 2 He has driven me away and made me walk in darkness rather than light; LXX 3 Nay, against me has he turned his hand all the day.

LXX 32 CHAPH. For he that has brought down will pity, and according to the abundance of his mercy. NIV 32 Though he brings grief, he will show compassion, so great is his unfailing love.
