Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls.  30) For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”

8) The Lord is merciful and compassionate, slow to get angry and filled with unfailing love.

9The Lord is good to everyone. He showers compassion on all his creation.

10All of your works will thank you, Lordand your faithful followers will praise you.

11They will speak of the glory of your kingdom; they will give examples of your power.

12They will tell about your mighty deeds and about the majesty and glory of your reign.

13For your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. You rule throughout all generations. The Lord always keeps his promises; he is gracious in all he does.

14The Lord helps the fallen and lifts those bent beneath their loads.
