Eripe me. A prayer to be delivered from the wicked, with confidence in God's help and protection. It agrees to Christ and his enemies the Jews.

[1] Unto the end, destroy not, for David for an inscription of It title, when Saul sent and watched his house to kill him. [2] Deliver me from my enemies, O my God; and defend me from them that rise up against me. [3] Deliver me from them that work iniquity, and save me from bloody men. [4] For behold they have caught my soul: the mighty have rushed in upon me: [5] Neither is it my iniquity, nor my sin, O Lord: without iniquity have I run, and directed my steps.

[6] Rise up thou to meet me, and behold: even thou, O Lord, the God of hosts, the God of Israel. Attend to visit all the nations: have no mercy on all them that work iniquity. [7] They shall return at evening, and shall suffer hunger like dogs: and shall go round about the city. [8] Behold they shall speak with their mouth, and a sword is in their lips: for who, say they, hath heard us? [9] But thou, O Lord, shalt laugh at them: thou shalt bring all the nations to nothing. [10] I will keep my strength to thee: for thou art my protector:

[11] My God, his mercy shall prevent me. [12] God shall let me see over my enemies: slay them not, lest at any time my people forget. Scatter them by thy power; and bring them down, O Lord, my protector: [13] For the sin of their mouth, and the word of their lips: and let them be taken in their pride. And for their cursing and lying they shall be talked of, [14] When they are consumed: when they are consumed by thy wrath, and they shall be no more. And they shall know that God will rule Jacob, and all the ends of the earth. [15] They shall return at evening and shall suffer hunger like dogs: and shall go round about the city.

[16] They shall be scattered abroad to eat, and shall murmur if they be not filled. [17] But I will sing thy strength: and will extol thy mercy in the morning. For thou art become my support, and my refuge, in the day of my trouble. [18] Unto thee, O my helper, will I sing, for thou art God my defence: my God my mercy.
