19. For I will declare my iniquity; I will be sorry for my sin.
20. But my living enemies are strong; and those who hate me wrongfully are many.
21. Those who render me evil for good are my adversaries because I follow after good.
22. Do not forsake me, O Lord! O my God, do not be far from me!
23. Make haste to help me, O Lord my salvation!

20. Thus they changed their glory for the likeness of an ox that eats grass!
21. They forgot God who had saved them, who had done great things in Egypt;
22. Wondrous works in the land of Ham, and awesome things by the Red Sea!
23. Therefore he said that he would destroy them, had not Moses, his chosen one, stood before him in the breach, to turn away his wrath, lest he should destroy them!
24. And they despised the pleasant land, they did not believe his word;
25. And they murmured in their tents, and did not listen to the voice of the Lord!
26. And he lifted up his hand against them, to make them fall in the wilderness;
27. And to make their seed fall among the nations, and to scatter them in the lands!
28. And they joined themselves to Baal-Peor, and ate the sacrifices of the dead!
29. Thus they provoked him to anger with their wrong doings; and the plague broke out upon them!
30. Then stood up Phinehas, and executed judgment; and so the plague was stayed!
31. And that was counted to him for righteousness to all generations for evermore!
32. And they angered him at the waters of Meribah, so that it went ill with Moses for their sakes,
33. Because they angered his spirit, so that he spoke rashly with his lips!
34. They did not destroy the nations, concerning whom the Lord commanded them;
35. But they mingled among the nations, and learned to do what they did;
36. And they served their idols; which became a snare to them!
37. And they sacrificed their sons and their daughters to idols,
38. And shed innocent blood, the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed to the idols of Canaan; and the land was polluted with blood!
39. Thus were they defiled with their own works, and played the harlot in their doings!
40. And the wrath of the Lord was kindled against his people, and he loathed his own heritage!
41. And he gave them into the hand of the nations; and those who hated them ruled over them!
42. And their enemies oppressed them, and they were brought into subjection under their hand!
43. Many times he saved them; but they were rebellious in their counsel, and were brought low for their iniquity!
44. Nevertheless, when he heard their cry, he regarded their affliction;
45. And he remembered for them his covenant, and relented according to the abundance of his loving kindness!
46. And he caused them to be pitied by all those who held them captive!
47. Save us, O Lord our God, and gather us from among the nations, that we may give thanks to your holy name, and to triumph in your praise!
48. Blessed be the Lord God of Israel from everlasting to everlasting; and let all the people say, Amen. Hallelujah!
