I cried out
To the Lord
In my great distress
When sinners attacked.
Suddenly I heard the cry of war
I said, You will hear me
Because I fulfilled righteousness
I pondered in my my heart.
I fulfilled righteousness
I have flourished
I have many children.
Their wealth has gone out into all the earth
And their glory to the end of the earth.
They were raised up to the stars
They said, “We shall not fall.”
They abused the best among them.
They could not continue.
Their sins were in secret,
So, I did not know.
Their lawless deeds exceed the heathen before them
They polluted the Lord’s holy things.
