1Be gracious unto me, O God#GodHebrew: Elohim for man would swallow me up: all the day long fighting he oppresseth me. 2Mine enemies would swallow me up all the day long; for they are many that fight against me haughtily. 3In the day that I am afraid, I will confide in thee. 4In God#GodHebrew: Elohim will I praise his word, in God#GodHebrew: Elohim I put my confidence: I will not fear; what can flesh do unto me? 5All the day long they wrest my words; all their thoughts are against me for evil. 6They gather themselves together, they hide themselves; they mark my steps, because they wait for my soul. 7Shall they escape by iniquity? In anger cast down the peoples, O God#GodHebrew: Elohim
8 Thou countest my wanderings; put my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book? 9Then shall mine enemies return backward in the day when I call: this I know, for God#GodHebrew: Elohim is for me. 10In God#GodHebrew: Elohim will I praise his word; in Jehovah will I praise his word. 11In God#GodHebrew: Elohim have I put my confidence: I will not fear; what can man do unto me? 12Thy vows are upon me, O God#GodHebrew: Elohim I will render thanks unto thee. 13For thou hast delivered my soul from death; wilt thou not keep my feet from falling, that I may walk before God#GodHebrew: Elohim in the light of the living?
