do not let me be put to shame;
do not let my enemies exult over me.
let them be ashamed who are wantonly treacherous.
teach me your paths.
for you are the God of my salvation;
for you I wait all day long.
for they have been from of old.
according to your steadfast love remember me,
for your goodness’ sake, O Lord!
therefore he instructs sinners in the way.
and teaches the humble his way.
for those who keep his covenant and his decrees.
pardon my guilt, for it is great.
He will teach them the way that they should choose.
and their children shall possess the land.
and he makes his covenant known to them.
for he will pluck my feet out of the net.
for I am lonely and afflicted.
and bring mea out of my distress.
and forgive all my sins.
and with what violent hatred they hate me.
do not let me be put to shame, for I take refuge in you.
for I wait for you.
out of all its troubles.
