Set me on high from those who rise up against me.
Yes, save me from the men of bloodshed.
The mighty attack me,
not for my transgression, nor for my sin, O Yahweh.
they run and have determined themselves.
Rouse yourself to meet me and look!
and they walk around the city.
Swords are on their lips;
“For who hears us?”
You mock all the nations.
for God is my stronghold.
God will let me look in triumph over my enemies.
Shake them with your power
and bring them down, O Lord, our shield.
let them be captured by their pride,
for the curses and lies that they tell.
Consume them and they will be no more.
Let them know that God rules in Jacob
to the ends of the earth. Selah.
growling like dogs and walking around the city.
They will stay until they are satisfied.
Yes, I will shout with joy of your covenant faithfulness in the morning.
For you have been a stronghold for me,
a refuge in my time of distress.
For God is my stronghold,
the God who shows me covenant faithfulness.
