Awake,1 and rise2 to my defense! Contend3 for me, my God and Lord.
Vindicate me in your righteousness, O LORD my God; do not let them gloat4 over me.
Do not let them think, "Aha,5 just what we wanted!" or say, "We have swallowed him up."626
May all who gloat7 over my distress8 be put to shame9 and confusion; may all who exalt themselves over me10 be clothed with shame and disgrace.
May those who delight in my vindication11 shout for joy12 and gladness; may they always say, "The LORD be exalted, who delights13 in the well-being of his servant."1428
My tongue will speak of your righteousness15 and of your praises all day long.16
