Their offspring You will destroy from the earth, And their descendants from among the sons of men.
Do not hide Your face from me, Do not turn Your servant away in anger; You have been my help; Do not abandon me nor forsake me, O God of my salvation!
O love the LORD, all you His godly ones! The LORD preserves the faithful And fully recompenses the proud doer.
He loves righteousness and justice; The earth is full of the lovingkindness of the LORD.
