2 – Mine enemies would daily swallow me up: for they be many that fight against me, O thou most High.

3 – What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.

4 – In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.

5 – Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.

6 – They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.

7 – Shall they escape by iniquity? in thine anger cast down the people, O God.

8 – Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?

9 – When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.

10 – In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word.

11 – In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.

12 – Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee.

13 – For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?
