Away from me,1 you evildoers, that I may keep the commands of my God!
Sustain me2 according to your promise,3 and I will live; do not let my hopes be dashed.4117
Uphold me,5 and I will be delivered;6 I will always have regard for your decrees.7118
You reject all who stray8 from your decrees, for their deceitfulness is in vain.
All the wicked of the earth you discard like dross;9 therefore I love your statutes.10120
My flesh trembles11 in fear of you;12 I stand in awe13 of your laws.
I have done what is righteous and just;14 do not leave me to my oppressors.
Ensure your servant's well-being;15 let not the arrogant oppress me.16123
My eyes fail,17 looking for your salvation,18 looking for your righteous promise.19124
Deal with your servant according to your love20 and teach me your decrees.21125
I am your servant;22 give me discernment that I may understand your statutes.23
