19 But You, O Lord, do not be far from Me;
O My Strength, hasten to help Me!
20 Deliver Me from the sword,
(A)My[a] precious life from the power of the dog.
21 (B)Save Me from the lion’s mouth
And from the horns of the wild oxen!

(C)You have answered Me.

22 (D)I will declare Your name to (E)My brethren;
In the midst of the assembly I will praise You.
23 (F)You who fear the Lord, praise Him!
All you [b]descendants of Jacob, glorify Him,
And fear Him, all you offspring of Israel!
24 For He has not despised nor abhorred the affliction of the afflicted;
Nor has He hidden His face from Him;
But (G)when He cried to Him, He heard.

25 (H)My praise shall be of You in the great assembly;
(I)I will pay My vows before those who fear Him.
26 The poor shall eat and be satisfied;
Those who seek Him will praise the Lord.
Let your heart live forever!

27 All the ends of the world
Shall remember and turn to the Lord,
And all the families of the [c]nations
Shall worship before [d]You.
28 (J)For the kingdom is the Lord’s,
And He rules over the nations.

29 (K)All the prosperous of the earth
Shall eat and worship;
(L)All those who go down to [e]the dust
Shall bow before Him,
Even he who cannot keep himself alive.

30 A posterity shall serve Him.
It will be recounted of the Lord to the next generation,
31 They will come and declare His righteousness to a people who will be born,
That He has done this.
