You came near1 when I called you, and you said, "Do not fear."258
O Lord, you took up my case;3 you redeemed my life.459
You have seen, O LORD, the wrong done to me.5 Uphold my cause!660
You have seen the depth of their vengeance, all their plots against me.761
O LORD, you have heard their insults,8 all their plots against me--
what my enemies whisper and mutter against me all day long.963
Look at them! Sitting or standing, they mock me in their songs.1064
Pay them back what they deserve, O LORD, for what their hands have done.1165
Put a veil over their hearts,12 and may your curse be on them!
Pursue13 them in anger and destroy them from under the heavens of the LORD.
