The LORD sets the prisoners free; the LORD opens the eyes of the blind. The LORD lifts up those who are bowed down; the LORD loves the righteous. The LORD watches over the sojourners; he upholds the widow and the fatherless, but the way of the wicked he brings to ruin. The LORD will reign forever, your God, O Zion, to all generations. Praise the LORD!
It is fascinating to note that the classes of individuals who reap special attention from the LORD are those with a limitation on their abilities to cope with the challenges of life in some way.
I do catch an anomaly in the list in that the ‘righteous’ jump out like a rose in a weed patch. But do they? Romans 3:10 opens that issue: “ None is righteous, no, not one;” And v 23 settles it ” for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,”
But all is not lost; reread the passage looking for results. Such as freedom restored, sight to the blind.
