O God, hear my prayer, Give ear to the sayings of my mouth,

For strangers have risen up against me And terrible ones have sought my soul, They have not set God before them.
Selah.

6
With a free will-offering I sacrifice to Thee, I thank Thy name, O Jehovah, for [it is] good,

For, from all adversity He delivered me, And on mine enemies hath mine eye looked!
