8Keep me as the apple of your eye; hide me in the shadow of your wings,8Keep me as the apple of the eye; Hide me in the shadow of Your wings
9from the wicked who do me violence, my deadly enemies who surround me.9From the wicked who despoil me, My deadly enemies who surround me.
10They close their hearts to pity; with their mouths they speak arrogantly.10They have closed their unfeeling heart, With their mouth they speak proudly.
11They have now surrounded our steps; they set their eyes to cast us to the ground.11They have now surrounded us in our steps; They set their eyes to cast us down to the ground.
12He is like a lion eager to tear, as a young lion lurking in ambush.12He is like a lion that is eager to tear, And as a young lion lurking in hiding places.

14from men by your hand, O LORD, from men of the world whose portion is in this life. You fill their womb with treasure; they are satisfied with children, and they leave their abundance to their infants.14From men with Your hand, O LORD, From men of the world, whose portion is in this life, And whose belly You fill with Your treasure; They are satisfied with children, And leave their abundance to their babes.
15As for me, I shall behold your face in righteousness; when I awake, I shall be satisfied with your likeness.15As for me, I shall behold Your face in righteousness; I will be satisfied with Your likeness when I awake.
