5 I called on the Lord in distress; The Lord answered me and set me in a broad place.

5 .

6 The Lord is on my side; I will not fear. What can man do to me?

6 .

7 The Lord is for me among those who help me; Therefore I shall see my desire on those who hate me.

10 All nations surrounded me, But in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.

10 . .

11 They surrounded me, Yes, they surrounded me; But in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.

11 . .

12 They surrounded me like bees; They were quenched like a fire of thorns; For in the name of the Lord I will destroy them.

13 You pushed me violently, that I might fall, But the Lord helped me.

14 The Lord is my strength and song, And He has become my salvation]

22 The stone which the builders rejected Has become the chief cornerstone.

22 .

23 This was the Lord's doing; It is marvelous in our eyes.

28 You are my God, and I will praise You; You are my God, I will exalt You.
