New International Version
8 You who are the hope(A) of Israel,
its Savior(B) in times of distress,(C)
why are you like a stranger in the land,
like a traveler who stays only a night?
9 Why are you like a man taken by surprise,
like a warrior powerless to save?(D)
You are among(E) us, Lord,
and we bear your name;(F)
do not forsake(G) us!
