Be merciful to me,1 O God, for men hotly pursue me;2 all day long they press their attack.32
My slanderers pursue me all day long;4 many are attacking me in their pride.53
When I am afraid,6 I will trust in you.74
In God, whose word I praise,8 in God I trust; I will not be afraid.9 What can mortal man do to me?105
All day long they twist my words;11 they are always plotting to harm me.
They conspire,12 they lurk, they watch my steps,13 eager to take my life.147
On no account let them escape;15 in your anger, O God, bring down the nations.16
