God Sustains His Servant.
For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

5Many, O LORD my God, are the wonders which You have done,
6Sacrifice and meal offering You have not desired;
7Then I said, Behold, I come;
8I delight to do Your will, O my God;
9I have proclaimed glad tidings of righteousness in the great congregation;

12For evils beyond number have surrounded me;
13Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me;

17Since I am afflicted and needy,
