Psalms 109 (asv)
109:2For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of deceit have they opened against me:
They have spoken unto me with a lying tongue.
109:3They have compassed me about also with words of hatred,
And fought against me without a cause.
109:4For my love they are my adversaries:
But I give myself unto prayer.
And hatred for my love.
109:6Set thou a wicked man over him;
109:7When he is judged, let him come forth guilty;
109:8Let his days be few;
And let another take his office.
109:9Let his children be fatherless,
109:10Let his children be vagabonds, and beg;
And let them seek their bread out of their desolate places.
109:11Let the extortioner catch all that he hath;
And let strangers make spoil of his labor.
109:12Let there be none to extend kindness unto him;
Neither let there be any to have pity on his fatherless children.
109:13Let his posterity be cut off;
109:14Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with Jehovah;
And let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.
109:15Let them be before Jehovah continually,
That he may cut off the memory of them from the earth;
109:16Because he remembered not to show kindness,
And the broken in heart, to slay them.
109:17Yea, he loved cursing, and it came unto him;
And he delighted not in blessing, and it was far from him.
109:18He clothed himself also with cursing as with his garment,
And it came into his inward parts like water,
And like oil into his bones.
109:19Let it be unto him as the raiment wherewith he covereth himself,
And for the girdle wherewith he is girded continually.
109:20This is the reward of mine adversaries from Jehovah,
Because thy lovingkindness is good, deliver thou me;
And my heart is wounded within me.
109:23I am gone like the shadow when it declineth:
I am tossed up and down as the locust.
109:24My knees are weak through fasting;
And my flesh faileth of fatness.
109:25I am become also a reproach unto them:
When they see me, they shake their head.
Oh save me according to thy lovingkindness:
109:27That they may know that this is thy hand;
That thou, Jehovah, hast done it.
When they arise, they shall be put to shame,
But thy servant shall rejoice.
109:29 Let mine adversaries be clothed with dishonor,
And let them cover themselves with their own shame as with a robe.
109:30I will give great thanks unto Jehovah with my mouth;
