O God, save me, by your name, and vindicate me by your might.
O God, hear my prayer; give ear to the words of my mouth.
For "strangers" have risen against me; ruthless men seek my life; they do not set God before themselves.
Behold, God is my helper; the Lord is the upholder of my life.
He will return the evil to my enemies; in your faithfulness put an end to them.
With a freewill offering I will sacrifice to you; I will give thanks to your name, O LORD, for it is good.
For he has delivered me from every trouble, and my eye has looked in triumph on my enemies.
Only Lord, bring and end to their old selves, and grant them sweet communion with you and us, O God, through the slaying of your Son; the only, our only Hope.
