The Gospel Message, Good Tidings
Arise, O LORD! Rescue me, my God! Slap all my enemies in the face! Shatter the teeth of the wicked!
If you don't, they will maul me like a lion, tearing me to pieces with no one to rescue me.
How long, O Lord, will you look on and do nothing? Rescue me from their fierce attacks. Protect my life from these lions!
All day long you plot destruction. Your tongue cuts like a sharp razor; you're an expert at telling lies.
His words are as smooth as butter, but in his heart is war. His words are as soothing as lotion, but underneath are daggers!
Break off their fangs, O God! Smash the jaws of these lions, O LORD!
Listen to the filth that comes from their mouths; their words cut like swords. "After all, who can hear us?" they sneer.
