My God is my rock, in whom I seek-refuge,
my shield, the horn of my deliverance,
my secure-height, my place-of-retreat,
my deliverer — from treachery you deliver me!

German:
mein Gott, mein Fels, an den ich mich schmiege,
mein Schild, Horn meiner Freiheit,
mein Horst, meine Zuflucht,
mein Befreier,
von der Unbill befreist du mich.

Elohîms de mon roc, je m’abrite en lui.
Mon bouclier, la corne de mon salut,
ma culmination, ma fuite, mon sauveur,
tu me sauves de la violence.
