Remember this, O LORD, the enemy has scoffed,
And a foolish and impious people has spurned Your name.
Oh, do not hand over the soul of your turtledove to the wild beast;
Do not forget the life of Your afflicted forever.
Consider the covenant [You made with Abraham],
For the dark places of the land are full of the habitations of violence.
Let not the oppressed return dishonored;
Let the afflicted and needy praise Your name.
Arise, O God, plead Your own cause;
Remember how the foolish man scoffs at You all day long.
Do not forget the [clamoring] voices of Your adversaries,
The uproar of those who rise against You, which ascends continually [to Your ears].
