3 Save me, O God, by your name, and judge me in your virtue.
4 O God, listen to my prayer. Pay attention to the words of my mouth.
5 For strangers have risen up against me, and the strong have sought my soul. And they have not set God before their eyes.
6 For behold, God is my helper, and the Lord is the protector of my soul.
7 Turn back the evils upon my adversaries, and ruin them by your truth.
8 I will freely sacrifice to you, and I will confess your name, O God, because it is good.
Wisdom 2:12, 17-20
12 Therefore, let us encircle the just, because he is useless to us, and he is against our works, and he reproaches us with our legal offenses, and makes known to us the sins of our way of life.
17 Let us see, then, if his words are true, and let us test what will happen to him, and then we will know what his end will be.
18 For if he is the true son of God, he will receive him and deliver him from the hands of his adversaries.
19 Let us examine him with insult and torture, that we may know his reverence and try his patience.
20 Let us condemn him to a most shameful death, for, according to his own words, God will care for him."
