Be gracious to me, God, be gracious to me, for I take refuge in You. I will seek refuge in the shadow of Your wingsa until danger passes.
I call to God Most High, to God who fulfills [His purpose] for me.b3
He reaches down from heaven and saves me, challenging the one who tramples me. Selah God sends His faithful love and truth.
I am in the midst of lions; I lie down with those who devour men. Their teeth are spears and arrows; their tongues are sharp swords.
God, be exalted above the heavens; let Your glory be above the whole earth.
They prepared a net for my steps; I was downcast. They dug a pit ahead of me, but they fell into it!c Selah
My heart is confident, God, my heart is confident. I will sing; I will sing praises.
Wake up, my soul!d Wake up, harp and lyre! I will wake up the dawn.
I will praise You, Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to You among the nations.
For Your faithful love is as high as the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.e11
God, be exalted above the heavens; let Your glory be over the whole earth.f
