   1: God of my praise, let my prayer be answered;
   2: For the mouth of the sinner is open against me in deceit: his tongue has said false things against me.
   3: Words of hate are round about me; they have made war against me without cause.
   4: For my love they give me back hate; but I have given myself to prayer.
   5: They have put on me evil for good; hate in exchange for my love.
   6: Put an evil man over him; and let one be placed at his right hand to say evil of him.
   7: When he is judged, let the decision go against him; and may his prayer become sin.
   8: Let his life be short; let another take his position of authority.
   9: Let his children have no father, and his wife be made a widow.
   10: Let his children be wanderers, looking to others for their food; let them be sent away from the company of their friends.
   11: Let his creditor take all his goods; and let others have the profit of his work.
   12: Let no man have pity on him, or give help to his children when he is dead.
   13: Let his seed be cut off; in the coming generation let their name go out of memory.
   14: Let the Lord keep in mind the wrongdoing of his fathers; and may the sin of his mother have no forgiveness.
   15: Let them be ever before the eyes of the Lord, so that the memory of them may be cut off from the earth.
   16: Because he had no mercy, but was cruel to the low and the poor, designing the death of the broken-hearted.
   17: As he took pleasure in cursing, so let it come on him; and as he had no delight in blessing, let it be far from him.
   18: He put on cursing like a robe, and it has come into his body like water, and into his bones like oil.
   19: Let it be to him as a robe which he puts on, let it be like a band which is round him at all times.
   20: Let this be the reward given to my haters from the Lord, and to those who say evil of my soul.
   21: But, O Lord God, give me your help, because of your name; take me out of danger, because your mercy is good.
   22: For I am poor and in need, and my heart is wounded in me.
   23: I am gone like the shade when it is stretched out: I am forced out of my place like a locust.
   24: My knees are feeble for need of food; there is no fat on my bones.
   25: As for me, they make sport of me; shaking their heads when they see me.
   26: Give me help, O Lord my God; in your mercy be my saviour;
   27: So that they may see that it is the work of your hand; that you, Lord, have done it.
   28: They may give curses but you give blessing; when they come up against me, put them to shame; but let your servant be glad.
   29: Let my haters be clothed with shame, covering themselves with shame as with a robe.
   30: I will give the Lord great praise with my mouth; yes, I will give praise to him among all the people.
   31: For he is ever at the right hand of the poor, to take him out of the hands of those who go after his soul.
