Psalms 69:29-33

29 But as for me, afflicted and in pain— may your salvation, God, protect me.

31 This will please the LORD more than an ox, more than a bull with its horns and hooves.
32 The poor will see and be glad— you who seek God, may your hearts live!
33 The LORD hears the needy and does not despise his captive people.
