2 Hear my pleas when I cry to you for help
As I lift up my hands toward the innermost room of your sanctuary.+
Those who are speaking words of peace with their fellow man while evil is in their hearts.+
Repay them for the work of their hands,
According to what they have done.+
He will tear them down and not build them up.
6 May Jehovah be praised,
For he has heard my pleas for help.
I have received his help, and my heart rejoices,
So I will praise him with my song.
8 Jehovah is a strength for his people;
He is a stronghold, bringing grand salvation to his anointed one.+
Shepherd them and carry them in your arms forever.+
