15 But when I stumbled, they gathered in glee;
they gathered against me.
Assailants I did not know
tore at me and did not stop.(A)
16 With godless mockery[a]
they gnashed their teeth at me.(B)

17 Lord, how long will you look on?(C)
Rescue me from their ravages;
rescue my precious life from the young lions.(D)
