  17. Had not the Lord been my help, in an instant my soul would rest silent.
  18. If I said, « My foot has slipped, » Your kindness, O Lord, supported me.
  19. With my many thoughts within me, Your consolations cheered me.
  20. Will the throne of evil join You, which forms iniquity for a statute?
  21. They gather upon the soul of the righteous and condemn innocent blood.
  22. But the Lord was my fortress, and my God the rock of my refuge.
  23. And He returned upon them their violence, and for their evil, may He cut them off; may the Lord our God cut them off.
