12 He punishes murderers
and remembers those who are in need.
When suffering people cry for help,
he does not ignore them.
13 I said this prayer: “Lord, be kind to me.
See how my enemies are hurting me.
Save me from the ‘gates of death.’
14 Then, at the gates of Jerusalem,[a] I can sing praises to you.
I will be so happy because you saved me.”
- Psalm 9:14 Jerusalem Literally, “daughter Zion.” See “Zion” in the Word List.
