3. By your name, O God, save me; you, the Valiant, uphold my cause.
4. Hear my prayer, O God; listen to the words of my mouth.
5. Strangers are against me - the ruthless seek my life; they have no regard for God.
6. See, God is my helper; the Lord upholds my life.
7. May their evil plots rebound on them; in your faithfulness destroy them!
8. Freely will I offer sacrifice to you and praise your name, O Lord, for it is good.
9. You have delivered me from calamity, and I look down on my foes.
