Were I to count them,1 they would outnumber the grains of sand.2 When I awake,3 I am still with you.
If only you would slay the wicked,4 O God! Away from me,5 you bloodthirsty men!620
They speak of you with evil intent; your adversaries7 misuse your name.821
Do I not hate those9 who hate you, O LORD, and abhor10 those who rise up against you?
I have nothing but hatred for them; I count them my enemies.1123
Search me,12 O God, and know my heart;13 test me and know my anxious thoughts.
See if there is any offensive way14 in me, and lead me15 in the way everlasting.
