Look upon my suffering5 and deliver me,6 for I have not forgotten7 your law.
Defend my cause8 and redeem me;9 preserve my life10 according to your promise.11155
Salvation is far from the wicked, for they do not seek out12 your decrees.
Your compassion is great,13 O LORD; preserve my life14 according to your laws.15157
Many are the foes who persecute me,16 but I have not turned17 from your statutes.
I look on the faithless with loathing,18 for they do not obey your word.19159
See how I love your precepts; preserve my life,20 O LORD, according to your love.
All your words are true; all your righteous laws are eternal.21
