I proclaim your saving acts(A) in the great assembly;(B)
    I do not seal my lips, Lord,
    as you know.(C)
10 I do not hide your righteousness in my heart;
    I speak of your faithfulness(D) and your saving help.
I do not conceal your love and your faithfulness
    from the great assembly.(E)

11 Do not withhold your mercy(F) from me, Lord;
    may your love(G) and faithfulness(H) always protect(I) me.
12 For troubles(J) without number surround me;
    my sins have overtaken me, and I cannot see.(K)
They are more than the hairs of my head,(L)
    and my heart fails(M) within me.
13 Be pleased to save me, Lord;
    come quickly, Lord, to help me.(N)

14 May all who want to take my life(O)
    be put to shame and confusion;(P)
may all who desire my ruin(Q)
    be turned back in disgrace.
15 May those who say to me, “Aha! Aha!”(R)
    be appalled at their own shame.
16 But may all who seek you(S)
    rejoice and be glad(T) in you;
may those who long for your saving help always say,
    “The Lord is great!”(U)

17 But as for me, I am poor and needy;(V)
    may the Lord think(W) of me.
You are my help(X) and my deliverer;(Y)
    you are my God, do not delay.(Z)
