The Book of Psalms
Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul taketh refuge in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I take refuge, until these calamities be overpast.
2 I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.
3 He shall send from heaven, and save me; he reproacheth him that would trample upon me. Selah. God shall send forth his lovingkindness and his truth.
4 My soul is among lions: and I lie among them that breathe out fire, even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.
5 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; let thy glory be above all the earth.
6 They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down: they have digged a pit before me, into the midst whereof they are fallen themselves. Selah.
7 My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast: I will sing and give praise.
8 Awake my soul; awake, harp and lyre: I myself will awaken the dawn.
9 I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing of thee among the nations.
10 For thy lovingkindness is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds.
11 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: let thy glory be above all the earth.
