Look upon my suffering1 and deliver me,2 for I have not forgotten3 your law.
Defend my cause4 and redeem me;5 preserve my life6 according to your promise.7155
Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek out8 your decrees.
Your compassion is great,9 O LORD; preserve my life10 according to your laws.11157
Many are the foes who persecute me,12 but I have not turned13 from your statutes.
I look on the faithless with loathing,14 for they do not obey your word.15159
See how I love your precepts; preserve my life,16 O LORD, according to your love.
All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.17
