1 Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me, For my soul takes refuge in You; And in the shadow of Your wings I will take refuge Until destruction passes by. 1 Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy on me, for in you my soul takes refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed.

4 My soul is among lions; I must lie among those who breathe forth fire, Even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows And their tongue a sharp sword. 4 I am in the midst of lions; I lie among ravenous beasts-- men whose teeth are spears and arrows, whose tongues are sharp swords.
5 Be exalted above the heavens, O God; Let Your glory be above all the earth. 5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth.
6 They have prepared a net for my steps; My soul is bowed down; They dug a pit before me; They themselves have fallen into the midst of it. Selah. 6 They spread a net for my feet-- I was bowed down in distress. They dug a pit in my path-- but they have fallen into it themselves. "Selah"
7 My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises! 7 My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and make music.
8 Awake, my glory! Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn. 8 Awake, my soul! Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn.
9 I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to You among the nations. 9 I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations; I will sing of you among the peoples.
10 For Your lovingkindness is great to the heavens And Your truth to the clouds. 10 For great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies.
11 Be exalted above the heavens, O God; Let Your glory be above all the earth. 11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth.
