This is the day which the LORD has made; Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
Those who seek my life lay snares for me; And those who seek to injure me have threatened destruction, And they devise treachery all day long.
"Who say, 'Keep to yourself, do not come near me, For I am holier than you!' These are smoke in My nostrils, A fire that burns all the day.
As a shattering of my bones, my adversaries revile me, While they say to me all day long, "Where is your God?"
All day long my dishonor is before me And my humiliation has overwhelmed me,
Be gracious to me, O God, for man has trampled upon me; Fighting all day long he oppresses me.
My foes have trampled upon me all day long, For they are many who fight proudly against me.
All day long they distort my words; All their thoughts are against me for evil.
But for Your sake we are killed all day long; We are considered as sheep to be slaughtered.
Just as it is written, "FOR YOUR SAKE WE ARE BEING PUT TO DEATH ALL DAY LONG; WE WERE CONSIDERED AS SHEEP TO BE SLAUGHTERED."
In God we have boasted all day long, And we will give thanks to Your name forever. Selah.
Lead me in Your truth and teach me, For You are the God of my salvation; For You I wait all the day.
