- I said unto the LORD, Thou art my God: hear the voice of my supplications, O LORD.
- O GOD the Lord, the strength of my salvation, thou hast covered my head in the day of battle.
- Grant not, O LORD, the desires of the wicked: further not his wicked device; lest they exalt themselves. Selah.
- As for the head of those that compass me about, let the mischief of their own lips cover them.
- Let burning coals fall upon them: let them be cast into the fire; into deep pits, that they rise not up again.
- O LORD, I say to you, "You are my God." Hear, O LORD, my cry for mercy.
- O Sovereign LORD, my strong deliverer, who shields my head in the day of battle-
- do not grant the wicked their desires, O LORD; do not let their plans succeed, or they will become proud. Selah
- Let the heads of those who surround me be covered with the trouble their lips have caused.
- Let burning coals fall upon them; may they be thrown into the fire, into miry pits, never to rise.
