[A miktam of David.] Preserve me, O God: for in you do I put my trust.
Preserve my soul; for I am holy: O you my God, save your servant that trusts in you.
[To the Chief Musician. A Psalm of David.] Deliver me, O LORD, from the evil man: preserve me from the violent man;
Keep me, O LORD, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from the violent man; who have purposed to overthrow my paths.
Withhold not your tender mercies from me, O LORD: let your lovingkindness and your truth continually preserve me.
Keep me as the apple of the eye, hide me under the shadow of your wings,
Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on you.
Let the sighing of the prisoner come before you; according to the greatness of your power preserve you those that are appointed to die;
And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to you. Holy Father, keep through your own name those whom you have given me, that they may be one, as we are.
