New International Version
6 I hate those who cling to worthless idols;(C)
as for me, I trust in the Lord.(D)
7 I will be glad and rejoice in your love,
for you saw my affliction(E)
and knew the anguish(F) of my soul.
8 You have not given me into the hands(G) of the enemy
but have set my feet in a spacious place.(H)
9 Be merciful to me, Lord, for I am in distress;(I)
my eyes grow weak with sorrow,(J)
my soul and body(K) with grief.
10 My life is consumed by anguish(L)
and my years by groaning;(M)
my strength fails(N) because of my affliction,[a](O)
and my bones grow weak.(P)
11 Because of all my enemies,(Q)
I am the utter contempt(R) of my neighbors(S)
and an object of dread to my closest friends—
those who see me on the street flee from me.
12 I am forgotten as though I were dead;(T)
I have become like broken pottery.
13 For I hear many whispering,(U)
“Terror on every side!”(V)
They conspire against me(W)
and plot to take my life.(X)
