16  My confusion is daily before me, 
   and shame has covered my face,
17  At the taunts of the slanderer and reviler, 
   at the sight of the enemy and avenger.
18  All this has come upon us,
      though we have not forgotten you 
   and have not played false to your covenant.
19  Our hearts have not turned back, 
   nor our steps gone out of your way,
20  Yet you have crushed us in the haunt of jackals, 
   and covered us with the shadow of death.
21  If we have forgotten the name of our God, 
   or stretched out our hands to any strange god,
22  Will not God search it out? 
   For he knows the secrets of the heart.
23  But for your sake are we killed all the day long, 
   and are counted as sheep for the slaughter.
24  Rise up! Why sleep, O Lord? 
   Awake, and do not reject us for ever.
25  Why do you hide your face 
   and forget our grief and oppression?
26  Our soul is bowed down to the dust; 
   our belly cleaves to the earth.
27  Rise up, O Lord, to help us 
   and redeem us for the sake of your steadfast love.
