Sustain me1 according to your promise,2 and I will live; do not let my hopes be dashed.3117
Uphold me,4 and I will be delivered;5 I will always have regard for your decrees.6118
You reject all who stray7 from your decrees, for their deceitfulness is in vain.
All the wicked of the earth you discard like dross;8 therefore I love your statutes.9120
My flesh trembles10 in fear of you;11 I stand in awe12 of your laws.
I have done what is righteous and just;13 do not leave me to my oppressors.
Ensure your servant's well-being;14 let not the arrogant oppress me.15123
My eyes fail,16 looking for your salvation,17 looking for your righteous promise.18124
Deal with your servant according to your love19 and teach me your decrees.20125
I am your servant;21 give me discernment that I may understand your statutes.22126
It is time for you to act, O LORD; your law is being broken.23
