<> O LORD my God, in Thee do I put my trust. Save me from all them that persecute me; and deliver me,
lest they tear my soul like a lion, rending it in pieces while there is none to deliver.
O LORD my God, if I have done this, if there be iniquity on my hands,
if I have rewarded evil unto him that was at peace with me (yea, I have delivered him that without cause is mine enemy),
let the enemy persecute my soul and take it; yea, let him tread down my life upon the earth, and lay mine honor in the dust. Selah
Arise, O LORD, in Thine anger; lift up Thyself against the rage of mine enemies, and awaken for me the judgment that Thou hast commanded.
