1

Be merciful to me, my God,
for my enemies are in hot pursuit;
all day long they press their attack.

2 My adversaries pursue me all day long;
in their pride many are attacking me.

3

When I am afraid, I put my trust in you.

4 In God, whose word I praise—
in God I trust and am not afraid.
What can mere mortals do to me?

5

All day long they twist my words;
all their schemes are for my ruin.

6 They conspire, they lurk,
they watch my steps,
hoping to take my life.

7 Because of their wickedness do not[b] let them escape;
in your anger, God, bring the nations down.

8

Record my misery;
list my tears on your scroll[c]
are they not in your record?

9 Then my enemies will turn back
when I call for help.
By this I will know that God is for me.

10

In God, whose word I praise,
in the Lord, whose word I praise—

11 in God I trust and am not afraid.
What can man do to me?

11

12

I am under vows to you, my God;
I will present my thank offerings to you.

13 For you have delivered me from death
and my feet from stumbling,
that I may walk before God
in the light of life.
