1 Be gracious unto me, O God, for man would swallow me up; all the day he fighting oppresseth me.
2 They that lie in wait for me would swallow me up all the day; for they are many that fight against me, O Most High,
3 In the day that I am afraid, I will put my trust in Thee.
4 In God--I will praise His word--in God do I trust, I will not be afraid; what can flesh do unto me?
5 All the day they trouble mine affairs; all their thoughts are against me for evil.
6 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps; according as they have waited for my soul.
7 Because of iniquity cast them out; in anger bring down the peoples, O God.
8 Thou has counted my wanderings; put Thou my tears into Thy bottle; are they not in Thy book?
9 Then shall mine enemies turn back in the day that I call; this I know, that God is for me.
10 In God--I will praise His word--in the LORD--I will praise His word--
11 In God do I trust, I will not be afraid; what can man do unto me?
12 Thy vows are upon me, O God; I will render thank-offerings unto Thee.
13 For thou hast delivered my soul from death; hast Thou not delivered my feet from stumbling? that I may walk before God in the light of the living.
