To you, LORD, I call; you are my Rock, do not turn a deaf ear1 to me. For if you remain silent,2 I will be like those who go down to the pit.32
Hear my cry for mercy4 as I call to you for help, as I lift up my hands5 toward your Most Holy Place.63
Do not drag me away with the wicked, with those who do evil, who speak cordially with their neighbors but harbor malice in their hearts.74
Repay them for their deeds and for their evil work; repay them for what their hands have done8 and bring back on them what they deserve.95
Because they have no regard for the deeds of the LORD and what his hands have done,10 he will tear them down and never build them up again.
Praise be to the LORD,11 for he has heard my cry for mercy.127
The LORD is my strength13 and my shield; my heart trusts14 in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy,15 and with my song I praise him.168
The LORD is the strength17 of his people, a fortress of salvation18 for his anointed one.199
Save your people20 and bless your inheritance;21 be their shepherd22 and carry them23 forever.
