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