Sing praises to the Lord, who dwells in Zion;
Declare among the peoples His [great and wondrous] deeds.
For He who avenges blood [unjustly shed] remembers them (His people);
He does not forget the cry of the afflicted and abused.
Have mercy on me and be gracious to me, O Lord;
See how I am afflicted by those who hate me,
You who lift me up from the gates of death,
