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.12
