  1 O God of my praise, do not be silent;

  2 For the mouth of the wicked man and the mouth of deceit are opened against me; They speak to me with a lying tongue.

  3 And with words of hatred they have surrounded me And have fought against me without cause.

  4 In return for my love they have become my adversaries, But I am all prayer.

  5 And they have set against me evil in return for good And hatred in return for my love.

  6 Appoint a wicked man over him, And let an adversary stand at his right hand.

  7 When he is judged, let him come forth wicked; And let his prayer be counted as sin.

  8 May his days be few; May another take his office.

  9 May his children be orphans, And his wife a widow.

10 And may his children wander all about and beg, And may they seek food far from their desolated ruins.

11 May the creditor seize all that he has, And may strangers plunder the fruit of his labor.

12 May there be no one to extend him mercy, Nor anyone to be kind to his orphans.

13 May his posterity be cut off; In the generation following may his name be blotted out.

14 May his father's iniquity be remembered before Jehovah, And may his mother's sin not be blotted out.

15 May they be before Jehovah continually, So that He may cut off the memory of them from the earth;

16 Because he did not remember to show lovingkindness, But persecuted the poor and needy and brokenhearted, To put them to death.

17 Indeed he loved cursing, so it came on him; And he took no delight in blessing, so it was far from him.

18 And he clothed himself with cursing like his garment, So it came into his inward parts like water And into his bones like oil.

19 Let it be to him like the cloak that he wraps around himself, And as a belt with which he constantly girds himself.

20 This is the reward from Jehovah for my adversaries And for those who speak evil against my soul.

21 But You, O Jehovah Lord, deal with me, For Your name's sake; Because Your lovingkindness is good, deliver me.

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

23 I am gone like a shadow that declines; I am shaken off like the locust.

24 My knees wobble through fasting, And my flesh has become lean, without fatness.

25 I have also become a reproach to them: When they see me, they shake their heads.

26 Help me, O Jehovah my God; Save me according to Your lovingkindness;

27 And they will know that this is Your hand, That it is You, O Jehovah, who have done it.

28 Let them curse, but You bless; When they arise, they will be put to shame, And Your servant will rejoice.

29 May my adversaries be clothed with humiliation, And may they wrap themselves with their own shame as with a mantle.

30 I will give much thanks to Jehovah with my mouth, And in the midst of the multitude I will praise Him;

31 For He stands at the right hand of the needy To save him from those who judge his soul.
