English Standard Version
43 “You have wrapped yourself with anger and pursued us,
(E)killing without pity;
44 (F)you have wrapped yourself with a cloud
so that no prayer can pass through.
45 (G)You have made us scum and garbage
among the peoples.
46 (H)“All our enemies
open their mouths against us;
47 (I)panic and pitfall have come upon us,
devastation and (J)destruction;
48 (K)my eyes flow with rivers of tears
because of the destruction of the daughter of my people.
52 (N)“I have been hunted (O)like a bird
by those who were my enemies (P)without cause;
53 (Q)they flung me alive into the pit
(R)and cast stones on me;
54 (S)water closed over my head;
I said, (T)‘I am lost.’
55 (U)“I called on your name, O Lord,
from the depths of the pit;
56 (V)you heard my plea, ‘Do not close
your ear to my cry for help!’
57 (W)You came near when I called on you;
you said, (X)‘Do not fear!’
58 “You have (Y)taken up my cause, (Z)O Lord;
you have (AA)redeemed my life.
59 You have seen the wrong done to me, (AB)O Lord;
judge my cause.
60 You have seen all their vengeance,
all (AC)their plots against me.
61 (AD)“You have heard their taunts, O Lord,
all (AE)their plots against me.
62 The lips and thoughts (AF)of my assailants
are against me all the day long.
63 (AG)Behold their sitting and their rising;
(AH)I am the object of their taunts.
64 (AI)“You will repay them,[a] O Lord,
(AJ)according to the work of their hands.
65 You will give them[b] dullness of heart;
your curse will be[c] on them.
66 You will pursue them[d] in anger and (AK)destroy them
from under (AL)your heavens, O Lord.”[e]
