If I have rewarded evil unto him that dealt friendlý with me : yea, I have delivered him that without any cause is mine eněmy;

Then let mine enemy persecute my soul, and take me : yea, let him tread my life down upon the earth*, and lay mine honoúr in the dust.

Stand up, O Lord, in thy wrath *, and lift up thyself, because of the indignation of mine éněmies : arise up for me in the judgment that thou hast commánded.

And so shall the congregation of the people come äboút thee : for their sakes therefore líft úp thyself again,

The Lord shall judge the people*; give sentence with me, O Lord : according to my righteousness*, and according to the innocencỳ that is ín me.

My help cóměth of God : who preserveth them that are true of heart.
