God, be merciful to me because people are chasing me; the battle has pressed me all day long.
My enemies have chased me all day; there are many proud people fighting me.
When I am afraid, I will trust you.
I praise God for his word. I trust God, so I am not afraid. What can human beings do to me?
All day long they twist my words; all their evil plans are against me.
They wait. They hide. They watch my steps, hoping to kill me.
God, do not let them escape; punish the foreign nations in your anger.
You have recorded my troubles. You have kept a list of my tears. Aren't they in your records?
On the day I call for help, my enemies will be defeated. I know that God is on my side.
I praise God for his word to me; I praise the Lord for his word.
I trust in God. I will not be afraid. What can people do to me?
God, I must keep my promises to you. I will give you my offerings to thank you,
because you have saved me from death. You have kept me from being defeated. in light among the living.
