To the director. A melody of David.
Jehovah will rescue him in the day of calamity.
2 Jehovah will guard him and keep him alive.
He will be pronounced happy in the earth;+
5 But my enemies speak evil about me:
“When will he die and his name perish?”
6 If one of them comes to see me, his heart speaks falsely.
He gathers something harmful to say;
Then he goes out and spreads it abroad.
7 All those who hate me whisper to one another;
They are scheming something bad against me:
10 But you, O Jehovah, show me favor and raise me up,
So that I may repay them.
11 By this I will know that you are pleased with me:
When my enemy cannot shout in triumph over me.+
Amen and Amen.
