Remember how the enemy has mocked you, O LORD, how foolish people1 have reviled your name.
Do not hand over the life of your dove2 to wild beasts; do not forget the lives of your afflicted3 people forever.
Have regard for your covenant,4 because haunts of violence fill the dark places5 of the land.
Do not let the oppressed6 retreat in disgrace; may the poor and needy7 praise your name.
Rise up,8 O God, and defend your cause; remember how fools9 mock you all day long.
Do not ignore the clamor10 of your adversaries,11 the uproar12 of your enemies,13 which rises continually.
