1Be gracious to me, O God, for man has trampled upon me; Fighting all day long he oppresses me.
2My foes have trampled upon me all day long, For they are many who fight proudly against me.
3When I am afraid, I will put my trust in You.
4In God, whose word I praise, In God I have put my trust; I shall not be afraid. What can [mere] man do to me?
5All day long they distort my words; All their thoughts are against me for evil.
6They attack, they lurk, They watch my steps, As they have waited [to take] my life.
7Because of wickedness, cast them forth, In anger put down the peoples, O God!
8You have taken account of my wanderings; Put my tears in Your bottle. Are [they] not in Your book?
9Then my enemies will turn back in the day when I call; This I know, that God is for me.
10In God, [whose] word I praise, In the LORD, [whose] word I praise,
11In God I have put my trust, I shall not be afraid. What can man do to me?
12Your vows are [binding] upon me, O God; I will render thank offerings to You.
13For You have delivered my soul from death, Indeed my feet from stumbling, So that I may walk before God In the light of the living.
