1
¶ BE merciful to me, O God;
for man has trodden me under foot;
all the day long the fighting oppresses me.
2
Mine enemies have daily trodden me under foot;
for many warriors have risen against me.
3
I fear not during the day, because I trust in thee.
4
In God I will be glorified, in God I have put my trust;
I will not fear what man can do to me.
5
All the day long they conspired against me and they devised evil against me.
6
They will wait in hiding, they will watch my steps, inasmuch as they wish for my death.
7
He has no deliverer, they have said.
Condemn them with the condemnation of the Gentiles.
8
¶ O God, I have declared my faith unto thee;
record thou my tears before thee in thy book.
9
Then shall mine enemies turn back;
and I will know I have a God.
10
In God will I praise his word;
in the LORD will I praise his word.
11
In God have I put my trust;
I will not be afraid what man can do to me.
12
To thee shall I perform my vows, O God;
I will offer them to thee with thank offering.
13
For thou hast delivered my soul from death and my feet from stumbling, that I may be pleasing in thy sight, O God, in the land of the living.
