Deliver my life from the sword,1 my precious life2 from the power of the dogs.321
Rescue me from the mouth of the lions;4 savea me from the horns of the wild oxen.522
I will declare your name to my brothers; in the congregation6 I will praise you.723
You who fear the LORD, praise him!8 All you descendants of Jacob, honor him!9 Revere him,10 all you descendants of Israel!
For he has not despised11 or disdained the suffering of the afflicted one;12 he has not hidden his face13 from him but has listened to his cry for help.1425
From you comes the theme of my praise in the great assembly;15 before those who fear youb will I fulfill my vows.1626
The poor will eat17 and be satisfied; they who seek the LORD will praise him--18 may your hearts live forever!
All the ends of the earth19 will remember and turn to the LORD, and all the families of the nations will bow down before him,2028
for dominion belongs to the LORD 21 and he rules over the nations.
All the rich22 of the earth will feast and worship;23 all who go down to the dust24 will kneel before him-- those who cannot keep themselves alive.2530
Posterity26 will serve him; future generations27 will be told about the Lord.
