Hear my voice1 in accordance with your love;2 preserve my life,3 O LORD, according to your laws.
Those who devise wicked schemes4 are near, but they are far from your law.
Yet you are near,5 O LORD, and all your commands are true.6152
Long ago I learned from your statutes7 that you established them to last forever.8
Look upon my suffering9 and deliver me,10 for I have not forgotten11 your law.
Defend my cause12 and redeem me;13 preserve my life14 according to your promise.15155
Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek out16 your decrees.
Your compassion is great,17 O LORD; preserve my life18 according to your laws.19157
Many are the foes who persecute me,20 but I have not turned21 from your statutes.
I look on the faithless with loathing,22 for they do not obey your word.23159
See how I love your precepts; preserve my life,24 O LORD, according to your love.
