11 You, Lord, will not withhold Your compassion from me;
[a]Your (A)mercy and Your truth will continually watch over me.
12 For evils beyond number have (B)surrounded me;
My (C)guilty deeds have overtaken me, so that I am not able to see;
They are (D)more numerous than the hairs of my head,
And my (E)heart has [b]failed me.

13 (F)Be pleased, Lord, to rescue me;
(G)Hurry, Lord, to help me.
