English translation got from website:

  1. For the conductor, of David a song.
  2. I have greatly hoped for the Lord, and He extended [His ear] to me and heard my cry.
  3. And He drew me up out of the roaring pit, from the thick mire, and He set my feet upon a rock, He established my steps.
  4. He put a new song into my mouth, a praise to our God, so that many may see and fear, and trust in the Lord.
  5. Praiseworthy is the man who made the Lord his trust, and did not turn to the haughty and those who turn to falsehood.
  6. You have done great things, You, O Lord my God. Your wonders and Your thoughts are for us. There is none to equal You; were I to tell and speak, they would be too many to tell.
  7. You desired neither sacrifice nor meal offering; You dug ears for me; a burnt offering or a sin offering You did not request.
  8. Then I said, « Behold I have come, » with a scroll of a book written for me.

  12. You, O Lord, do not withhold Your mercies from me; may Your kindness and Your truth always watch me.
  13. For countless evils have encompassed me; my iniquities have overtaken me and I could not see [them because] they are more numerous than the hairs of my head, and my heart has forsaken me.
  14. O Lord, be willing to save me; O Lord, hasten to my help.
  15. May those who seek my soul to destroy it be shamed and embarrassed together; may those who seek to harm me retreat and be humiliated.
  16. May they be bewildered afterwards because of their shame, those who say about me, « Aha! Aha! »
  17. All who seek You shall exult and rejoice; those who love Your salvation shall constantly say, « May the Lord be magnified. »
  18. But I am poor and needy; may the Lord think of me. You are my help and my rescuer, my God; do not delay.
