O Lord, my God, I come to you for protection; rescue me and save me from all who pursue me,
or else like a lion they will carry me off where no one can save me, and there they will tear me to pieces.
O Lord, my God, if I have wronged anyone, if I have betrayed a friend or without cause done violence to my enemy a - if I have done any of these things -
then let my enemies pursue me and catch me, let them cut me down and kill me and leave me lifeless on the ground!
Rise in your anger, O Lord! Stand up against the fury of my enemies; rouse yourself and help me! Justice is what you demand,
