12 Do not be far(A) from me, my God;
    come quickly, God, to help(B) me.
13 May my accusers(C) perish in shame;(D)
    may those who want to harm me
    be covered with scorn and disgrace.(E)

14 As for me, I will always have hope;(F)
    I will praise you more and more.

15 My mouth will tell(G) of your righteous deeds,(H)
    of your saving acts all day long—
    though I know not how to relate them all.
16 I will come and proclaim your mighty acts,(I) Sovereign Lord;
    I will proclaim your righteous deeds, yours alone.
17 Since my youth, God, you have taught(J) me,
    and to this day I declare your marvelous deeds.(K)
18 Even when I am old and gray,(L)
    do not forsake me, my God,
till I declare your power(M) to the next generation,
    your mighty acts to all who are to come.(N)

19 Your righteousness, God, reaches to the heavens,(O)
    you who have done great things.(P)
    Who is like you, God?(Q)
20 Though you have made me see troubles,(R)
    many and bitter,
    you will restore(S) my life again;
from the depths of the earth(T)
    you will again bring me up.
21 You will increase my honor(U)
    and comfort(V) me once more.

22 I will praise you with the harp(W)
    for your faithfulness, my God;
I will sing praise to you with the lyre,(X)
    Holy One of Israel.(Y)
23 My lips will shout for joy(Z)
    when I sing praise to you—
    I whom you have delivered.(AA)
24 My tongue will tell of your righteous acts
    all day long,(AB)
for those who wanted to harm me(AC)
    have been put to shame and confusion.(AD)
