(English translation got from website: https://www.chabad.org/library/bible_cdo )

  1. For the conductor, on yonath elem rehokim (the dumb dove in the distance), of David a michtam, when the Philistines seized him in Gath.
  2. Be gracious to me, O God, because men yearn to swallow me; all day long the warrior oppresses me.
  3. Those who eye me have yearned to swallow me all day long, for many fight against me, O Most High.
  4. The day I fear, I will hope to You.
  5. With God, I will praise His word; in God I trusted, I will not fear. What can flesh do to me?
  6. All day long, my words grieve [me]; all their thoughts about me are for evil.
  7. They lodge, they hide, they watch my steps, when they hope for my life.
  8. For iniquity, they expect rescue. Bring down nations with anger, O God.
  9. You counted my wanderings; place my tears in Your flask. Is it not in Your accounting?
  10. Then my enemies will retreat on the day that I call. Thereby I will know that I have a God.
  11. With God[‘s justice] I will praise a word; with the Lord[‘s kindness] I will praise a word.
  12. In God I trusted, I will not fear. What can man do to me?
  13. Upon me, O God, are Your vows; I will pay thanksgiving offerings to You.
  14. For You saved my soul from death, even my feet from stumbling, to walk before God in the light of life.
