1aI take refuge in you, LORD, my God. Save me from all who chase me! Rescue me!
Otherwise, they will rip me apart, dragging me off with no chance of rescue.
LORD, my God, if I have done this— if my hands have done anything wrong,
if I have repaid a friend with evil or oppressed a foe for no reason—
then let my enemy not only chase but catch me, trampling my life into the ground, laying my reputation in the dirt. Selah6
Get up, LORD; get angry! Stand up against the fury of my foes! Wake up, my God;b you command that justice be done!
