- For thou shalt forget misery; as waters that are passed away shalt thou remember it;
- And life shall arise brighter than noonday; though thou be enshrouded in darkness, thou shalt be as the morning,
- And thou shalt have confidence, because there shall be hope; and having searched about [thee], thou shalt take rest in safety.
