All my enemies whisper together1 against me; they imagine the worst for me, saying,
"A vile disease has beset him; he will never get up2 from the place where he lies."
Even my close friend,3 whom I trusted, he who shared my bread, has lifted up his heel against me.410
But you, O LORD, have mercy5 on me; raise me up,6 that I may repay7 them.
I know that you are pleased with me,8 for my enemy does not triumph over me.912
In my integrity10 you uphold me11 and set me in your presence forever.1213
Praise13 be to the LORD, the God of Israel,14 from everlasting to everlasting. Amen and Amen.15
