12 Happy is the man, whom thou, o JEHOVAH ! dost correct, and dost instruct in thy law;

13 To give him patience in the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.

14 For JEHOVAH will not forsake his people ; he will not desert his inheritance ;

15 But righteous judgment shall be restored, and all the upright of heart shall be his followers.

16 Who riseth for me against the evildoers ? Who will take iny part against the workers of iniquity ?

18 When I say : “My foot slippeth ;" thy mercy, O JEHOVAH! supporteth me.

While a multitude of anxious thoughts disquiet me, thy comforts delight my soul.

21 They gather themselves together against the life of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood. 22 But JEHOVAH is

my fortress; and my god is the rock of my defence.

23 He shall turn their own iniquity against them; he shall destroy them in their own wickedness : yea, JEHOVAH, our GOD, shall destroy them.
