But I will call on God,
and the LORD will rescue me. Morning, noon, and night
I cry out in my distress,
and the LORD hears my voice. He ransoms me and keeps me safe
from the battle waged against me,
though many still oppose me. God, who has ruled forever,
will hear me and humble them.
For my enemies refuse to change their ways;
they do not fear God. As for my companion, he betrayed his friends;
he broke his promises. His words are as smooth as butter,
but in his heart is war.
His words are as soothing as lotion,
but underneath are daggers! Give your burdens to the LORD,
and he will take care of you.
He will not permit the godly to slip and fall. But you, O God, will send the wicked
down to the pit of destruction.
Murderers and liars will die young,
but I am trusting you to save me.
