whose sin is covered.
and in whose spirit there is no deceit.
through my groaning all day long.
my strength was dried upo as by the heat of summer. [Selah]
and I did not hide my iniquity;
I said, “I will confess my transgressions to the Lord”;
then thou didst forgive the guilt of my sin. [Selah]
offer prayer to thee;
at a time of distress,p in the rush of great waters,
they shall not reach him.
thou preservest me from trouble;
thou dost encompass me with deliverance. * [Selah]
I will counsel you with my eye upon you.
which must be curbed with bit and bridle,
else it will not keep with you.
but steadfast love surrounds him who trusts in the Lord.
The name of the God of Jacob protect you!
and give you support from Zion!
and regard with favor your burnt sacrifices! [Selah]
and fulfil all your plans!
and in the name of our God set up our banners!
May the Lord fulfil all your petitions!
he will answer him from his holy heaven
with mighty victories by his right hand.
but we boast of the name of the Lord our God.
but we shall rise and stand upright.
answer us when we call.l
and in thy help how greatly he exults!
and hast not withheld the request of his lips. [Selah]
thou dost set a crown of fine gold upon his head.
length of days for ever and ever.
splendor and majesty thou dost bestow upon him.
thou dost make him glad with the joy of thy presence.
and through the steadfast love of the Most High he shall not be moved.
your right hand will find out those who hate you.
when you appear.
The Lord will swallow them up in his wrath;
and fire will consume them.
and their children from among the sons of men.
if they devise mischief, they will not succeed.
you will aim at their faces with your bows.
We will sing and praise thy power.
