A (9) Because of his strength will I wait upon thee: for God is MY DEFENCE.
B (10) The God of MY MERCY shall prevent me: God shall let me see my desire upon mine enemies.
C (11,12) Slay them not, lest my people forget: SCATTER them by thy power; and bring them down, O Lord our shield. For the sin of their mouth and the words of their lips let them even be taken in their pride: and for cursing and lying which they speak.
D (13) CONSUME THEM
E (13) in wrath,
D (13) CONSUME THEM, that they may not be: and let them know that God ruleth in Jacob unto the ends of the earth. Selah.
C1 (14,15) And at evening let them return; and let them make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city. LET THEM WANDER UP AND DOWN for meat, and grudge if they be not satisfied.
B1 (16) But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing aloud OF THY MERCY in the morning:
A1 (16) for thou hast been MY DEFENCE and refuge in the day of my trouble.
