Give attention to my lamenting cry.
Heed my prayer
that is not from deceitful lips.
Let your eyes see upright things.
by the word of your lips
I have guarded myself
from the paths of the violent person.
My feet were not shaken.
because you will answer me, O God.
Incline your ear to me. Hear my plea.
O Savior of those who take refuge
at your right hand
from those who rise up against them.
Hide me under the shadow of your wings,
my mortal enemies who surround me.
Their mouth speaks arrogantly.
They set their eyes
to cast me down to the earth.
yes, like a young lion crouching in hiding places.
confront his face. Bring him down low.
Deliver my soul from the wicked person by your sword,
from men of the world
whose portion is among the living.
But your treasured people, you have filled their belly.
Your children are satisfied,
and they store up their excess for their children.
I will be satisfied with seeing your form when I awake.”
