Teach me your way, O LORD, so that I may live in your truth. Focus my heart on fearing you. I will give thanks to you with all my heart, O Lord my God. I will honor you forever because your mercy toward me is great. You have rescued me from the depths of hell.
O God, arrogant people attack me, and a mob of ruthless people seeks my life. They think nothing of you. But you, O Lord, are a compassionate and merciful God. You are patient, always faithful and ready to forgive. Turn toward me, and have pity on me. Give me your strength because I am your servant. Save me because I am the son of your female servant. Grant me some proof of your goodness so that those who hate me may see it and be put to shame. You, O LORD, have helped me and comforted me.
