Selah God will send His [e]favor and His truth.
4 My soul is among lions; I must lie among those who devour, Among sons of mankind whose teeth are spears and arrows, And their tongue is a sharp sword. 5 Be exalted above the heavens, God; May Your glory be above all the earth. 6 They have prepared a net for my steps; My soul is bowed down; They dug a pit before me; They themselves have fallen into the midst of it. Selah
7 My heart is steadfast, God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises! 8 Awake, my glory! Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn. 9 I will praise You, Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to You among the [f]nations. 10 For Your goodness is great to the heavens And Your [g]truth to the clouds. 11 Be exalted above the heavens, God; May Your glory be above all the earth.
