They say, "A deadly thing has fastened upon him; he will not rise again from where he lies."
Even my bosom friend in whom I trusted, who ate of my bread, has lifted his heel against me.
But do thou, O LORD, be gracious to me, and raise me up, that I may requite them!
By this I know that thou art pleased with me, in that my enemy has not triumphed over me.
But thou hast upheld me because of my integrity, and set me in thy presence for ever.
Blessed be the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting! Amen and Amen.
