English Standard Version
9 The Lord is (A)a stronghold for (B)the oppressed,
a stronghold in (C)times of trouble.
10 And those who (D)know your name put their trust in you,
for you, O Lord, have not forsaken those who seek you.
13 (I)Be gracious to me, O Lord!
See my affliction from those who hate me,
O you who lift me up from (J)the gates of death,
14 that I may recount all your praises,
that in the gates of (K)the daughter of Zion
I may (L)rejoice in your salvation.
15 The nations have sunk in (M)the pit that they made;
in (N)the net that they hid, their own foot has been caught.
16 The Lord has made himself (O)known; he has executed judgment;
the wicked are snared in the work of their own hands. Higgaion.[a] Selah
18 For the needy shall not always be forgotten,
and (R)the hope of the poor shall not perish forever.
