2 Preserve thou my soul, for I am holy: * my God, save thy servant
that putteth his trust in thee.
3 Be merciful unto me, O Lord; * for I will call daily upon thee.
4 Comfort the soul of thy servant; * for unto thee, O Lord, do

before their eyes.
15 But thou, O Lord God, art full of compassion and mercy, *
long-suffering, plenteous in goodness and truth.
16 O turn thee then unto me, and have mercy upon me; * give thy
strength unto thy servant, and help the son of thine handmaid.
17 Show some token upon me for good; that they who hate me may
see it, and be ashamed, * because thou, LORD, hast holpen me,
and comforted me.
