They conspire,1 they lurk, they watch my steps,2 eager to take my life.37
On no account let them escape;4 in your anger, O God, bring down the nations.58
Record my lament; list my tears on your scrolla6-- are they not in your record?79
Then my enemies will turn back8 when I call for help.9 By this I will know that God is for me.1010
In God, whose word I praise, in the LORD, whose word I praise--
in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?
I am under vows11 to you, O God; I will present my thank offerings to you.
For you have delivered meb from death12 and my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.c13
