1: Hold not thy peace, O God of my praise; edit

2: For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful are opened against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue. edit

3: They compassed me about also with words of hatred; and fought against me without a cause. edit

4: For my love they are my adversaries: but I give myself unto prayer. edit

5: And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love. edit

6: Set thou a wicked man over him: and let Satan stand at his right hand. edit

7: When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his prayer become sin. edit

8: Let his days be few; and let another take his office. edit

9: Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow. edit

10: Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg: let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places. edit

11: Let the extortioner catch all that he hath; and let the strangers spoil his labour. edit

12: Let there be none to extend mercy unto him: neither let there be any to favour his fatherless children. edit

13: Let his posterity be cut off; and in the generation following let their name be blotted out. edit

14: Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the LORD; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out. edit

15: Let them be before the LORD continually, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth. edit

16: Because that he remembered not to shew mercy, but persecuted the poor and needy man, that he might even slay the broken in heart. edit

17: As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him: as he delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him. edit

18: As he clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment, so let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones. edit

19: Let it be unto him as the garment which covereth him, and for a girdle wherewith he is girded continually. edit

20: Let this be the reward of mine adversaries from the LORD, and of them that speak evil against my soul. edit

21: But do thou for me, O GOD the Lord, for thy name's sake: because thy mercy is good, deliver thou me. edit

22: For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me. edit

23: I am gone like the shadow when it declineth: I am tossed up and down as the locust. edit

24: My knees are weak through fasting; and my flesh faileth of fatness. edit

25: I became also a reproach unto them: when they looked upon me they shaked their heads. edit

26: Help me, O LORD my God: O save me according to thy mercy: edit

27: That they may know that this is thy hand; that thou, LORD, hast done it. edit

28: Let them curse, but bless thou: when they arise, let them be ashamed; but let thy servant rejoice. edit

29: Let mine adversaries be clothed with shame, and let them cover themselves with their own confusion, as with a mantle. edit

30: I will greatly praise the LORD with my mouth; yea, I will praise him among the multitude. edit

31: For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor, to save him from those that condemn his soul. edit
