Prayer for Rescue from Persecutors.

1 Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me, For my soul 1takes refuge in You; And in the 2shadow of Your wings I will take refuge Until destruction 3passes by.
2 I will cry to God Most High, To God who 4accomplishes all things for me.
3 He will 5send from heaven and save me; He reproaches him who 6tramples upon me. Selah. God will send forth His 7lovingkindness and His truth.
4 My soul is among 8lions; I must lie among those who breathe forth fire, Even the sons of men, whose 9teeth are spears and arrows And their 10tongue a sharp sword.
5 11Be exalted above the heavens, O God; Let Your glory be above all the earth.
6 They have prepared a 12net for my steps; My soul is 13bowed down; They 14dug a pit before me; They themselves have 15fallen into the midst of it. Selah.
7 16My 17heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises!
8 Awake, 18my glory! Awake, 19harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn.
9 20I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to You among the nations.
10 For Your 21lovingkindness is great to the heavens And Your truth to the clouds.
11 22Be exalted above the heavens, O God; Let Your glory be above all the earth.
