See my distress and save me, for your laws
I keep in mind.
As you have promised, free me, plead my cause;
redeem my life.
Far is salvation from the wicked man
who follows not your statutes and commands.
Great is your mercy, LORD; give life to me
by your commands.
Strong are my foes, yet I will never leave
your laws’ demands.
I look upon the faithless with disgust,
because they break your precepts, which are just.
See and consider how I love your law,
your precepts’ ways.
LORD, give me life according to your love,
your steadfast grace.
From first to last your word is true and sure,
and all your righteous laws fore’er endure.
