Show me favour, O Yahweh! Behold my humiliation due to them who hate me, Lift me on high out of the gates of death;
O Yahweh! thou hast lifted, out of hades, my soul, Thou hast brought me back to life, from among those who were going down to the pit.
For, thy lovingkindness, is great towards me, And thou hast rescued my soul from Hades beneath.
Now, therefore, O our God - the GOD great, mighty, and fearful - keeping the covenant and the lovingkindness, let not all the trouble seem little before thee, which hath come upon us - on our kings, on our rulers, and on our priests, and on our prophets, and on our fathers, and on all thy people, - from the days of the kings of Assyria, until this day.
Have regard! answer me O Yahweh my God, - Light up mine eyes, lest I sleep on into death:
And, my foes, are alive - have become strong, - and multiplied are they who hate me for false cause:
Be favorable unto me, O God, according to thy lovingkindness, And, in the multitude of thy compassions, blot out my transgressions;
For thou hast rescued my soul from death, Wilt thou not rescue my feet from stumbling? That I may walk to and fro, before God, In the light of life.
All manner of food, their soul abhorreth, and so they draw near unto the gates of death,
The meshes of death encompassed me, and the distresses of hades, came upon me, Peril and sorrow, I found;
Turn thyself unto me, and show me favour, - As is befitting, to the lovers of thy Name.
Attend thou unto my loud cry, for I am brought very low, - Rescue me from my pursuers, for they are stronger than I.
I, said - In the noontide of my days, I must enter the gates of hades, - I am deprived of the residue of ray years!
Her impurity, is in her skirts, She hath not remembered her hereafter, Therefore hath she come down wonderfully, none to comfort her, - Behold, O Yahweh, my humiliation, that the foe, hath made himself great.
All her people, are sighing, seeking bread, They have given their precious things for food, to bring back life, - Behold, O Yahweh, and discern, that I have become worthless.
