11 Because he hath loosed my cord, and afflicted me, they have also let loose the bridle before me.

12 Upon my right hand rise the youth; they push away my feet, and they raise up against me the ways of their destruction.

13 They mar my path, they set forward my calamity, they have no helper.

15 Terrors are turned upon me: they pursue my soul as the wind: and my welfare passeth away as a soul: Heb. my principal one
