For he who avenges blood1 remembers; he does not ignore the cry of the afflicted.213
O LORD, see how my enemies3 persecute me! Have mercy4 and lift me up from the gates of death,514
that I may declare your praises6 in the gates of the Daughter of Zion7 and there rejoice in your salvation.815
The nations have fallen into the pit they have dug;9 their feet are caught in the net they have hidden.1016
The LORD is known by his justice; the wicked are ensnared by the work of their hands.11 "Higgaion."a "Selah"
The wicked return to the grave,b12 all the nations that forget God.1318
But the needy will not always be forgotten, nor the hope14 of the afflicted15 ever perish.
Arise,16 O LORD, let not man triumph;17 let the nations be judged18 in your presence.
Strike them with terror,19 O LORD; let the nations know they are but men.20 "Selah"
