Thou didst crush the heads of Leviathan, thou didst give him as food for the creatures of the wilderness.
Thou didst cleave open springs and brooks; thou didst dry up ever-flowing streams.
Thine is the day, thine also the night; thou hast established the luminaries and the sun.
Thou hast fixed all the bounds of the earth; thou hast made summer and winter.
Remember this, O LORD, how the enemy scoffs, and an impious people reviles thy name.
Do not deliver the soul of thy dove to the wild beasts; do not forget the life of thy poor for ever.
Have regard for thy covenant; for the dark places of the land are full of the habitations of violence.
Let not the downtrodden be put to shame; let the poor and needy praise thy name.
Arise, O God, plead thy cause; remember how the impious scoff at thee all the day!
Do not forget the clamor of thy foes, the uproar of thy adversaries which goes up continually!
