Redeem me from the oppression of men,that I may keep your precepts. R.Give me life, O Lord, and I will do your commands. I am attacked by malicious persecutorswho are far from your law. R.Give me life, O Lord, and I will do your commands. Far from sinners is salvation,because they seek not your statutes. R.Give me life, O Lord, and I will do your commands. I beheld the apostates with loathing,because they kept not to your promise. R.Give me life, O Lord, and I will do your commands.
