    Do not be far(B) from me, Lord.
23 Awake,(C) and rise(D) to my defense!

    do not let them gloat(F) over me.
25 Do not let them think, “Aha,(G) just what we wanted!”
    or say, “We have swallowed him up.”(H)

27 May those who delight in my vindication(M)
    shout for joy(N) and gladness;

    your praises all day long.(R)
