LORD, my God, I seek refuge in you. Deliver me from those who persecute me! Rescue me!
My times are in your hands. Deliver me from the hands of my enemies and from those who pursue me.
As it happened, my fellow Israelis who went up with me terrified the people, but I fully followed the LORD my God.
Now just as David happened to have passed the summit of the Mount of Olives, suddenly Mephibosheth's servant Ziba met him, accompanied by a couple of saddled donkeys loaded with 200 loaves of bread, 100 clusters of raisins, 100 pieces of summer fruit, and a skin of wine!
Arise, LORD! Deliver me, my God! For you strike the jaw of all my enemies, and you break the teeth of the wicked.
I take refuge in the LORD. So how can you say to me, "Flee like a bird to the mountains."?
Look at me! Answer me, LORD, my God! Give light to my eyes! Otherwise, I will sleep in death;
As for me, I have trusted in your gracious love, my heart will rejoice in your deliverance.
Show forth your gracious love, save those who take refuge in you from those who rebel against your sovereign power.
The LORD is my rock, my fortress, my deliverer, my God, my stronghold in whom I take refuge, my shield, the glory of my salvation, and my high tower."
For you, LORD, make my lamp shine; my God enlightens my darkness.
Vindicate me, LORD, because I have walked in integrity; I have trusted in the LORD without wavering.
LORD, my God! I cried out to you for help and you healed me.
so that I may sing praise to you and not remain silent. LORD, my God, I will give you thanks forever! To the Director: A Davidic Psalm.
Argue my case, LORD, against those who argue against me. Fight against those who fight against me.
Then I will approach the altar of God, even to God in whom my joy finds its source. Then I will praise you with the lyre, God, my God,
He will announce to me "You are my father, my God, and the rock of my salvation.'
Do not look to nobles, nor to mere human beings who cannot save.
Who among you fears the LORD, obeying the voice of his servant, who among you walks in darkness and has no light? Let him trust in the name of the LORD, and rely upon his God.
You are aware LORD, remember me, pay attention to me, and vindicate me in front of those who pursue me. You are patient don't take me away. Know that I suffer insult because of you!
Butthe LORD is with me like a fearsome warrior. Therefore, those who pursue me will stumble and won't prevail. They'll be put to great shame, when they don't succeed. Their everlasting disgrace won't be forgotten.
"I've certainly heard Ephraim shuddering with grief as they said, "You have disciplined me, and I'm disciplined like an untrained calf. Restore me, and let me return, for you are the LORD my God.
I prayed to the LORD my God, confessing and saying:
"Lord, listen! "Lord, forgive! "Lord, take note and take action! "For your own sake, don't delay, my God, because your city and your people are called by your name.'"
You will run away through my mountain valley, because the valley of the mountains will extend as far as Azal. You will flee, as you fled from the earthquake during the reign of King Uzziah of Judah. And so the LORD my God will come, and all his holy ones will be accompanying you."
Through him you believe in God, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, so that your faith and hope might be in God.
So then, those who suffer according to God's will should entrust their souls to their faithful Creator and continue to do what is good.
