So don’t cut Me off from Your protection, I don’t have another way to solve My problems. My enemies are smart and they are powerful, They attack Me at My weaknesses. Their accusations and lies are tearing Me up, Their words hurt more than physical suffering. My spirit is crushed and I don’t want to live, Evil pressure is worse than physical suffering.
