25 יהוה is good to those waiting for Him,
To the being who seeks Him.
26 It is good—both to wait and to be silent,
For the deliverance of יהוה.
27 It is good for a man to bear a yoke in his youth.
28 Let him sit alone and be silent,
Because He has laid it on him.
29 Let him put his mouth in the dust,
There might yet be expectancy.
30 Let him give his cheek
To the one who smites him—
He is filled with reproach.
31 For יהוה does not cast off forever.
