11Deliver me from my enemies, O my God ; a2Set me securely on high away from those who rise up against me.
2Deliver me from 3those who doiniquity And save me from 4men of bloodshed.

4f8For noguilt of mine, they run and set themselves against me. 9Arouse Yourself to ghelp me, and see !
You, 10O LORDGod of hosts, the God of Israel, Awake to h11punishall the nations ; 12Do not be gracious to any who are treacherous in iniquity. iSelah.

12nOn account of the 27sin of their mouth and the words of their lips, Let them even be 28caught in their pride, And on account of 29curses and olies which they utter.
13p30Destroy them in wrath, qdestroy them that they may be nomore ; That men may 31know that Godrrules in Jacob To the ends of the earth. Selah.
