Miserere mei, Deus
1 Be merciful to me, O God, for my adversaries are treading me down;*
they are daily fighting and troubling me.
2 My enemies go about hounding me daily,*
for there are many who fight against me, O Most High.
3 Nevertheless, though I am sometimes afraid,*
yet I put my trust in you.
4 In God whose word I praise, in God I trust and fear not,*
for what can flesh do to me?
5 They daily distort my words;*
all that they imagine is to do me evil.
6 They all gather together and lie in wait,*
and mark my steps, while they seek after my life.
7 Shall they escape despite their wickedness?*
O God, in your displeasure cast them down.
8 Whenever I call upon you, then shall my enemies be put to flight;*
this I know, for God is on my side.
9 You record my lamentation; put my tears into your bottle.*
Are not these things noted in your book?
10 In God, whose word I praise,*
in the Lord, whose word I praise,
11 In God have I put my trust;*
I will not be afraid, for what can mortals do to me?
12 Unto you, O God, will I pay my vows;*
unto you will I give thanks.
13 For you have delivered my soul from death and my feet from stumbling,*
that I may walk before God in the light of the living.
