13 Have mercy upon me, O LORD; consider my trouble which I suffer of them that hate me, thou that liftest me up from the gates of death: 13 O LORD, see how my enemies persecute me! Have mercy and lift me up from the gates of death,
14 That I may shew forth all thy praise in the gates of the daughter of Zion: I will rejoice in thy salvation. 14 that I may declare your praises in the gates of the Daughter of Zion and there rejoice in your salvation.
