“Consider how many are my foes!
With what violent hatred they hate me.
O guard my life!
Do not let me be put to shame!
I take refuge in you.
May integrity and uprightness preserve me!
I wait for you.”
Yahweh should protect the psalmist from his foes and enemies. They hate him violently. Yahweh should guard his life and rescue him so that he would not be put to shame. He took refuge in Yahweh as he hoped that his integrity and uprightness would preserve him. Meanwhile he waited on Yahweh.
