Psalm 109


Vengeance Invoked upon Adversaries.

For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

Psalm 109:1   O God of my praise, Do not be silent!
Psalm 109:2   For they have opened the wicked and deceitful mouth against me; They have spoken against me with a lying tongue.
Psalm 109:3   They have also surrounded me with words of hatred, And fought against me without cause.
Psalm 109:4   In return for my love they act as my accusers; But I am in prayer.
Psalm 109:5   Thus they have repaid me evil for good And hatred for my love.
Psalm 109:6   Appoint a wicked man over him, And let an accuser stand at his right hand.
Psalm 109:7   When he is judged, let him come forth guilty, And let his prayer become sin.
Psalm 109:8   Let his days be few; Let another take his office.
Psalm 109:9   Let his children be fatherless And his wife a widow.
Psalm 109:10   Let his children wander about and beg; And let them seek sustenance far from their ruined homes.
Psalm 109:11   Let the creditor seize all that he has, And let strangers plunder the product of his labor.
Psalm 109:12   Let there be none to extend lovingkindness to him, Nor any to be gracious to his fatherless children.
Psalm 109:13   Let his posterity be cut off; In a following generation let their name be blotted out.
Psalm 109:14   Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered before the LORD, And do not let the sin of his mother be blotted out.
Psalm 109:15   Let them be before the LORD continually, That He may cut off their memory from the earth;
Psalm 109:16   Because he did not remember to show lovingkindness, But persecuted the afflicted and needy man, And the despondent in heart, to put them to death.
Psalm 109:17   He also loved cursing, so it came to him; And he did not delight in blessing, so it was far from him.
Psalm 109:18   But he clothed himself with cursing as with his garment, And it entered into his body like water And like oil into his bones.
Psalm 109:19   Let it be to him as a garment with which he covers himself, And for a belt with which he constantly girds himself.
Psalm 109:20   Let this be the reward of my accusers from the LORD, And of those who speak evil against my soul.
Psalm 109:21   But You, O GOD, the Lord, deal kindly with me for Your name's sake; Because Your lovingkindness is good, deliver me;
Psalm 109:22   For I am afflicted and needy, And my heart is wounded within me.
Psalm 109:23   I am passing like a shadow when it lengthens; I am shaken off like the locust.
Psalm 109:24   My knees are weak from fasting, And my flesh has grown lean, without fatness.
Psalm 109:25   I also have become a reproach to them; When they see me, they wag their head.
Psalm 109:26   Help me, O LORD my God; Save me according to Your lovingkindness.
Psalm 109:27   And let them know that this is Your hand; You, LORD, have done it.
Psalm 109:28   Let them curse, but You bless; When they arise, they shall be ashamed, But Your servant shall be glad.
Psalm 109:29   Let my accusers be clothed with dishonor, And let them cover themselves with their own shame as with a robe.
Psalm 109:30   With my mouth I will give thanks abundantly to the LORD; And in the midst of many I will praise Him.
Psalm 109:31   For He stands at the right hand of the needy, To save him from those who judge his soul.
