Why are you sleeping, O Lord? awake! and come to our help, do not give us up for ever.
Come up, Lord, in your wrath; be lifted up against my haters; be awake, my God, give orders for the judging.
Then was the Lord like one awaking from sleep, and like a strong man crying out because of wine.
Because of the crushing of the poor and the weeping of those in need, now will I come to his help, says the Lord; I will give him the salvation which he is desiring.
But now you have sent us away from you, and put us to shame; you do not go out with our armies.
For no sin of mine they go quickly and get themselves ready; be awake and come to my help, and see.
Of God, why have you put us away from you for ever? why is the fire of your wrath smoking against the sheep who are your care?
Will the Lord put me away for ever? will he be kind no longer?
Awake! awake! put on strength, O arm of the Lord, awake! as in the old days, in the generations long past. Was it not by you that Rahab was cut in two, and the dragon Wounded?
