"But he stands alone, and who can oppose him?1 He does whatever he pleases.2
He carries out his decree against me, and many such plans he still has in store.
That is why I am terrified before him;3 when I think of all this, I fear him.4
God has made my heart faint;5 the Almighty6 has terrified me.7
Yet I am not silenced by the darkness,8 by the thick darkness that covers my face.
