11 You, O Lord, will not withhold Your compassion from me;
[a]Your (A)lovingkindness and Your truth will continually preserve me.
12 For evils beyond number have (B)surrounded me;
My (C)iniquities 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, O Lord, to deliver me;
Make (G)haste, O Lord, to help me.
