But as for me, my prayer is to You, O LORD, at an acceptable and opportune time;
O God, in the greatness of Your favor and in the abundance of Your lovingkindness,
Answer me with truth [that is, the faithfulness of Your salvation].
Rescue me from the mire and do not let me sink;
Let me be rescued from those who hate me and from the deep waters.
Do not let the floodwater overwhelm me,
Nor the deep waters swallow me up,
Nor the pit [of Sheol] shut its mouth over me.
Answer me, O LORD, for Your lovingkindness is sweet and good and comforting;
According to the greatness of Your compassion, turn to me.
Do not hide Your face from Your servant,
For I am in distress; answer me quickly.
Draw near to my soul and redeem it;
Ransom me because of my enemies [so that they do not delight in my distress].
