Bow down Your ear to me; deliver me quickly; be my strong rock, a fortress to save me.

For You [are] my rock and my fortress; and for Your name's sake lead me and guide me.

Bring me out of the net that they hid for me, for You [are] my strength.

Into Your hand I commit my spirit; You have redeemed me, O LORD God of truth.

I have hated those who take heed to lying vanities; but I trust in the LORD.

I will be glad and rejoice in Your mercy; for You have looked on my affliction; You have known my soul in troubles;

and have not shut me up into the hand of the enemy; You have set my feet in a broad place.

Have mercy on me, O LORD, for I am in trouble; my eye has become old with grief, my soul and my belly.

For my life is ending with grief, and my years with sighing; my strength fails because of my iniquity, and my bones have wasted away.

I was a reproach among all my foes, but especially among my neighbors, and a fear to my friends; those who saw me outside fled from me.

I am forgotten as a dead man out of mind; I am like a broken vessel.

For I have heard the slander of many; fear [is] on every side; because of their plottings together against me, they planned to take away my life.

But I trusted in You, O LORD; I said, You [are] my God.

My times [are] in Your hand; deliver me from the hand of my enemies, and from those who persecute me.

Make Your face shine on Your servant; save me in Your mercy.

Let me not be ashamed, O LORD; for I have called on You; Let the wicked be ashamed; let them be silent in the grave.

Let the lying lips be put to silence; [the lips] which speak proudly against the righteous, with pride and scorn.

How great [is] Your goodness, which You have laid up for those who fear You; You have worked for those who trust in You before the sons of men!

You shall hide them in the secrecy of Your presence from the pride of man; You shall hide them in a shelter away from the strife of tongues.

Blessed [is] the LORD; for He has worked His mercy wondrously in a besieged city.

For I said in my haste, I am cut off from before Your eyes; surely You heard the voice of my cries, when I cried to You.

O love the LORD, all you saints of His; the LORD preserves the faithful, and plentifully rewards the proud doer.

Be strong, and He will make your heart stronger, all you who hope in the LORD.
