But you, O LORD, be not far off;1 O my Strength,2 come quickly3 to help me.420
Deliver my life from the sword,5 my precious life6 from the power of the dogs.721
Rescue me from the mouth of the lions;8 savea me from the horns of the wild oxen.922
I will declare your name to my brothers; in the congregation10 I will praise you.1123
You who fear the LORD, praise him!12 All you descendants of Jacob, honor him!13 Revere him,14 all you descendants of Israel!
For he has not despised15 or disdained the suffering of the afflicted one;16 he has not hidden his face17 from him but has listened to his cry for help.1825
From you comes the theme of my praise in the great assembly;19 before those who fear youb will I fulfill my vows.2026
The poor will eat21 and be satisfied; they who seek the LORD will praise him--22 may your hearts live forever!
All the ends of the earth23 will remember and turn to the LORD, and all the families of the nations will bow down before him,2428
for dominion belongs to the LORD 25 and he rules over the nations.
