It was you who opened up springs1 and streams; you dried up2 the ever flowing rivers.
The day is yours, and yours also the night; you established the sun and moon.317
It was you who set all the boundaries4 of the earth; you made both summer and winter.518
Remember how the enemy has mocked you, O LORD, how foolish people6 have reviled your name.
Do not hand over the life of your dove7 to wild beasts; do not forget the lives of your afflicted8 people forever.
Have regard for your covenant,9 because haunts of violence fill the dark places10 of the land.
Do not let the oppressed11 retreat in disgrace; may the poor and needy12 praise your name.
Rise up,13 O God, and defend your cause; remember how fools14 mock you all day long.
Do not ignore the clamor15 of your adversaries,16 the uproar17 of your enemies,18 which rises continually.
