Psalms 35
New Living Translation
35[A psalm of David.] O LORD, oppose those who oppose me. Fight those who fight against me.H1732H7378H3068H3401H3898H3898 2Put on your armor, and take up your shield. Prepare for battle, and come to my aid.H2388H4043H6793H6965H5833 3Lift up your spear and javelin against those who pursue me. Let me hear you say, "I will give you victory!"H7324H2595H5462H7125H7291H559H5315H3444 4Bring shame and disgrace on those trying to kill me; turn them back and humiliate those who want to harm me.H954H3637H1245H5315H5472H268H2659H2803H7451 5Blow them away like chaff in the wind—a wind sent by the angel of the LORD.H4671H6440H7307H4397H3068H1760 6Make their path dark and slippery, with the angel of the LORD pursuing them.H1870H2822H2519H4397H3068H7291 7I did them no wrong, but they laid a trap for me. I did them no wrong, but they dug a pit to catch me.H2600H2934H7568H7845H2600H2658H5315 8So let sudden ruin come upon them! Let them be caught in the trap they set for me! Let them be destroyed in the pit they dug for me.H7722H935H3045H3808H7568H2934H3920H7722H5307 9Then I will rejoice in the LORD. I will be glad because he rescues me.H5315H1523H3068H7797H3444 10With every bone in my body I will praise him. "LORD, who can compare with you? Who else rescues the helpless from the strong? Who else protects the helpless and poor from those who rob them?"H6106H559H3068H5337H6041H2389H6041H34H1497 11Malicious witnesses testify against me. They accuse me of crimes I know nothing about.H2555H5707H6965H7592H3045 12They repay me evil for good. I am sick with despair.H7999H7451H2896H7908H5315 13Yet when they were ill, I grieved for them. I denied myself by fasting for them, but my prayers returned unanswered.H2470H3830H8242H6031H5315H6685H8605H7725H2436 14I was sad, as though they were my friends or family, as if I were grieving for my own mother.H1980H7453H251H7817H6937H57H517 15But they are glad now that I am in trouble; they gleefully join together against me. I am attacked by people I don't even know; they slander me constantly.H6761H8055H622H5222H622H3045H7167H1826 16They mock me and call me names; they snarl at me.H2611H3934H4580H2786H8127 17How long, O Lord, will you look on and do nothing? Rescue me from their fierce attacks. Protect my life from these lions!H136H7200H7725H5315H7722H3173H3715 18Then I will thank you in front of the great assembly. I will praise you before all the people.H3034H7227H6951H1984H6099H5971 19Don't let my treacherous enemies rejoice over my defeat. Don't let those who hate me without cause gloat over my sorrow.H341H8267H8055H7169H5869H8130H2600 20They don't talk of peace; they plot against innocent people who mind their own business.H1696H7965H2803H4820H1697H7282H776 21They shout, "Aha! Aha! With our own eyes we saw him do it!"H6310H7337H559H1889H1889H5869H7200 22O LORD, you know all about this. Do not stay silent. Do not abandon me now, O Lord.H7200H3068H2790H136H7368 23Wake up! Rise to my defense! Take up my case, my God and my Lord.H5782H6974H4941H7379H430H136 24Declare me not guilty, O LORD my God, for you give justice. Don't let my enemies laugh about me in my troubles.H8199H3068H430H6664H8055 25Don't let them say, "Look, we got what we wanted! Now we will eat him alive!"H559H3820H1889H5315H559H1104 26May those who rejoice at my troubles be humiliated and disgraced. May those who triumph over me be covered with shame and dishonor.H954H2659H3162H8056H7451H3847H1322H3639H1431 27But give great joy to those who came to my defense. Let them continually say, "Great is the LORD, who delights in blessing his servant with peace!"H7442H8055H2655H6664H559H8548H3068H1431H2655H7965H5650 28Then I will proclaim your justice, and I will praise you all day long.H3956H1897H6664H8416H3117
