You heard my plea:1 "Do not close your ears to my cry for relief."
You came near2 when I called you, and you said, "Do not fear."358
O Lord, you took up my case;4 you redeemed my life.559
You have seen, O LORD, the wrong done to me.6 Uphold my cause!760
You have seen the depth of their vengeance, all their plots against me.861
O LORD, you have heard their insults,9 all their plots against me--
what my enemies whisper and mutter against me all day long.1063
Look at them! Sitting or standing, they mock me in their songs.1164
Pay them back what they deserve, O LORD, for what their hands have done.1265
Put a veil over their hearts,13 and may your curse be on them!
Pursue14 them in anger and destroy them from under the heavens of the LORD.
