He The wicked have drawn out the sword and have bent their bow to cast down the poor and needy and to slay such as are of upright conversation.
He has put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him; he has defiled his covenant.
As a roaring lion and a hungry bear, so is a wicked ruler over the poor people.
Blessed be the LORD, for he has shown me his marvellous mercy in a strong city.
Though a host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident.
For I am with thee, and no one shall be able to hurt thee, for I have many people in this city.
