When Joab was besieging the city, he put Uriah in the place where he knew the best [enemy] soldiers were.
Then the men of the city came out and attacked Joab, and some of the men from David's soldiers fell [in battle]; Uriah the Hittite also died.

[A song. A psalm of the sons of Korah. For the choir director: according to Mahalath Leannoth. A Maskil of Heman the Ezrahite.] LORD, God of my salvation, I cry out before You day and night.
Indeed, God is my salvation. I will trust [Him] and not be afraid. Because Yah, the LORD, is my strength and my song, He has become my salvation."
Israel will be saved by the LORD with an everlasting salvation; you will not be put to shame or humiliated for all eternity.
yet I will triumph in the LORD; I will rejoice in the God of my salvation!
And my tongue will proclaim Your righteousness, Your praise all day long.
My mouth will tell about Your righteousness and Your salvation all day long, though I cannot sum them up.
I come because of the mighty acts of the Lord God; I will proclaim Your righteousness, Yours alone.
God, You have taught me from my youth, and I still proclaim Your wonderful works.
Even when I am old and gray, God, do not abandon me. Then I will proclaim Your power to [another] generation, Your strength to all who are to come.
Your righteousness reaches heaven, God, You who have done great things; God, who is like You?
You caused me to experience many troubles and misfortunes, but You will revive me again. You will bring me up again, even from the depths of the earth.
You will increase my honor and comfort me once again.

My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to You, because You have redeemed me.
Therefore, my tongue will proclaim Your righteousness all day long, for those who seek my harm will be disgraced and confounded.
I will praise You with all my heart, Lord my God, and will honor Your name forever.

You are righteous concerning all that has come on us, because You have acted faithfully, while we have acted wickedly.
Lord, righteousness belongs to You, but this day public shame belongs to us: the men of Judah, the residents of Jerusalem, and all Israel-- those who are near and those who are far, in all the countries where You have dispersed them because of the disloyalty they have shown toward You.
Lord, in keeping with all Your righteous acts, may Your anger and wrath turn away from Your city Jerusalem, Your holy mountain; for because of our sins and the injustices of our fathers, Jerusalem and Your people have become an object of ridicule to all those around us.
Because they disregarded the righteousness from God and attempted to establish their own righteousness, they have not submitted to God's righteousness.
