You are my refuge and my shield;1 I have put my hope2 in your word.
Away from me,3 you evildoers, that I may keep the commands of my God!
Sustain me4 according to your promise,5 and I will live; do not let my hopes be dashed.6117
Uphold me,7 and I will be delivered;8 I will always have regard for your decrees.9118
You reject all who stray10 from your decrees, for their deceitfulness is in vain.
All the wicked of the earth you discard like dross;11 therefore I love your statutes.12120
My flesh trembles13 in fear of you;14 I stand in awe15 of your laws.
I have done what is righteous and just;16 do not leave me to my oppressors.
Ensure your servant's well-being;17 let not the arrogant oppress me.18123
My eyes fail,19 looking for your salvation,20 looking for your righteous promise.21124
Deal with your servant according to your love22 and teach me your decrees.23
