The LORD is a stronghold for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
And those who know thy name put their trust in thee, for thou, O LORD, hast not forsaken those who seek thee.
Sing praises to the LORD, who dwells in Zion! Tell among the peoples his deeds!
For he who avenges blood is mindful of them; he does not forget the cry of the afflicted.
Be gracious to me, O LORD! Behold what I suffer from those who hate me, O thou who liftest me up from the gates of death,
that I may recount all thy praises, that in the gates of the daughter of Zion I may rejoice in thy deliverance.
The nations have sunk in the pit which they made; in the net which they hid has their own foot been caught.
The LORD has made himself known, he has executed judgment; the wicked are snared in the work of their own hands. [Higgaion. Selah]
The wicked shall depart to Sheol, all the nations that forget God.
For the needy shall not always be forgotten, and the hope of the poor shall not perish for ever.
Arise, O LORD! Let not man prevail; let the nations be judged before thee!
