15 (A)The eyes of the Lord are toward the righteous
    (B)and his ears toward their cry.
16 (C)The face of the Lord is against those who do evil,
    to (D)cut off the memory of them from the earth.
17 (E)When the righteous cry for help, the Lord hears
    and delivers them out of all their troubles.
18 The Lord is near to (F)the brokenhearted
    and saves (G)the crushed in spirit.

19 (H)Many are the afflictions of the righteous,
    (I)but the Lord delivers him out of them all.
20 He keeps all his bones;
    (J)not one of them is broken.
21 (K)Affliction will slay the wicked,
    and those who hate the righteous will be condemned.
22 The Lord (L)redeems the life of his servants;
    none of those who take refuge in him will be (M)condemned.
