1 Be merciful unto me, O God, for man would swallow me up; he oppresses me fighting me daily. 2 My enemies would daily swallow me up, for they are many that fight against me, O thou most High.
3 When I am afraid, I will trust in thee. 4 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.
5 Every day my life is filled with sorrow; all their thoughts are against me for evil. 6 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps when they wait for my soul. 7 Shall they escape by iniquity? in thine anger cast down the peoples, O God.
8 Thou tellest my wanderings; put my tears into thy bottle; are they not in thy book? 9 When I cry unto thee, then shall my enemies be turned back; in this I know that God is for me.
10 In God I will praise his word; in the LORD I will praise his word. 11 In God I have put my trust; I will not be afraid of what man can do unto me.
12 Thy promises are upon me, O God; I will render praises unto thee. 13 For thou hast delivered my life from death; thou hast kept my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living.
