Have mercy upon us, O God b Gk with it of all, 2 and put all the nations in fear of you. 3 Lift up your hand against foreign nations and let them see your might. 4 As you have used us to show your holiness to them, so use them to show your glory to us. 5 Then they will know, c Gk he as we have known, that there is no God but you, O Lord. 6 Give new signs, and work other wonders; 7 make your hand and right arm glorious. 8 Rouse your anger and pour out your wrath; 9 destroy the adversary and wipe out the enemy. 10 Hasten the day, and remember the appointed time, d Other ancient authorities read many refuse to lend, therefore, because of such meanness; they are afraid and let people recount your mighty deeds. 11 Let survivors be consumed in the fiery wrath, and may those who harm your people meet destruction. 12 Crush the heads of hostile rulers who say, “There is no one but ourselves.” 13 Gather all the tribes of Jacob, e Lat: Gk reproach from your family; other ancient authorities lack this line 16 and give them their inheritance, as at the beginning. 17 Have mercy, O Lord, on the people called by your name, on Israel, whom you have named f Or scolding from the household your firstborn, 18 Have pity on the city of your sanctuary, g This heading is included in the Gk text. Jerusalem, the place of your dwelling. h Other ancient authorities lack this line and the preceding line 19 Fill Zion with your majesty, a Other ancient authorities lack this line and your temple b Heb: Gk take pains with him with your glory. 20 Bear witness to those whom you created in the beginning, and fulfill the prophecies spoken in your name. 21 Reward those who wait for you and let your prophets be found trustworthy. 22 Hear, O Lord, the prayer of your servants, according to your goodwill toward c Other ancient authorities lack eternal sleep your people, and all who are on the earth will know that you are the Lord, the God of the ages.

The stomach will take any food, yet one food is better than another. 24 As the palate tastes the kinds of game, so an intelligent mind detects false words. 25 A perverse mind will cause grief, but a person with experience will pay him back. 26 A woman will accept any man as a husband, but one girl is preferable to another. 27 A woman's beauty lights up a man's face, and there is nothing he desires more. 28 If kindness and humility mark her speech, her husband is more fortunate than other men. 29 He who acquires a wife gets his best possession, d This heading is included in the Gk text; other ancient authorities place the heading before verse 16 a helper fit for him and a pillar of support. e Other ancient authorities add So is the person who does right under compulsion 30 Where there is no fence, the property will be plundered; and where there is no wife, a man will become a fugitive and a wanderer. f Other ancient authorities read Beguile yourself 31 For who will trust a nimble robber that skips from city to city? So who will trust a man that has no nest, but lodges wherever night overtakes him?
