12 Blessed is the man whom you will instruct, O Lord. And you will teach him from your law.
13 So may you soothe him from the evil days, until a pit may be dug for sinners.
14 For the Lord will not drive away his people, and he will not abandon his inheritance,
15 even until the time when justice is being converted into judgment, and when those who are close to justice are all those who are upright of heart.
16 Who will rise up with me against the malignant? Or who will stand with me against the workers of iniquity?
17 Except that the Lord assisted me, my soul almost would have dwelt in Hell.
18 If ever I said, "My foot is slipping," then your mercy, O Lord, assisted me.
