21 When my soul was embittered,
    when I was pricked in heart,
22 I was (A)brutish and ignorant;
    I was like (B)a beast toward you.

23 Nevertheless, I am continually with you;
    you (C)hold my right hand.
24 You (D)guide me with your counsel,
    and afterward you will (E)receive me to glory.
25 (F)Whom have I in heaven but you?
    And there is nothing on earth that I desire besides you.
26 (G)My flesh and my heart may fail,
    but God is (H)the strength[a] of my heart and my (I)portion (J)forever.

27 For behold, those who are (K)far from you shall perish;
    you put an end to everyone who is (L)unfaithful to you.
28 But for me it is good to (M)be near God;
    I have made the Lord God my (N)refuge,
    that I may (O)tell of all your works.
