16 Turn to me(A) and be gracious to me,(B)
    for I am lonely(C) and afflicted.
17 Relieve the troubles(D) of my heart
    and free me from my anguish.(E)
18 Look on my affliction(F) and my distress(G)
    and take away all my sins.(H)
19 See how numerous are my enemies(I)
    and how fiercely they hate me!(J)

20 Guard my life(K) and rescue me;(L)
    do not let me be put to shame,(M)
    for I take refuge(N) in you.
21 May integrity(O) and uprightness(P) protect me,
    because my hope, Lord,[a] is in you.(Q)

22 Deliver Israel,(R) O God,
    from all their troubles!
