And save me from men of bloodshed.

Not for my transgression nor for my sin, O LORD,

Arouse Yourself to [fn]help me, and see!

Let them even be caught in their pride,
And on account of curses and [fn]lies which they utter.

That men may know that God [fn]rules in Jacob
To the ends of the earth. Selah.

And go around the city.

And [fn]growl if they are not satisfied.

For You have been my stronghold
And a refuge in the day of my distress.

For God is my stronghold, the [fn]God who shows me lovingkindness.
