1 Be merciful unto
me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth
2 Mine enemies would daily swallow me up: for they be many that
fight against me, O thou most High.
3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
4 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust;
I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.
5 Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against
me for evil.
6 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they
mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.
7 Shall they escape by iniquity? in thine anger cast down the
people, O God.
8 Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle:
are they not in thy book?
9 When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this
I know; for God is for me.
10 In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise
11 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man
can do unto me.
12 Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee.
13 For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou
deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in
the light of the living?
