For I said, “May they not rejoice over me,
Who, when my foot slips, would magnify themselves against me.”
If I should say, “My foot has slipped,”
Your lovingkindness, O Lord, will hold me up.
‘Vengeance is Mine, and retribution,
In due time their foot will slip;
For the day of their calamity is near,
And the impending things are hastening upon them.’
Consider and answer me, O Lord my God;
Enlighten my eyes, or I will sleep the sleep of death,
Judge me, O Lord my God, according to Your righteousness,
And do not let them rejoice over me.
