Fight against them that fight against me.
2 Take hold of cshield and buckler,
And stand up dfor mine help.
Say unto my soul, I am thy salvation.
5 Let them be gas chaff before the wind:
And let the angel of the Lord chase them.
And let the angel of the Lord persecute them.
7 For without cause have they ihid for me their net in a pit,
Which without cause they have digged for my soul.
Into that very destruction let him fall.
lIt shall rejoice in his salvation.
10 All mmy bones shall say,
Lord, nWho is like unto thee,
Which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him,
Yea, nnthe poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?
†They laid to my charge things that I knew not.
12 pThey rewarded me evil for good
To the †spoiling of my soul.
13 But as for me, qwhen they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth:
I ||humbled my soul with fasting;
And my prayer rreturned into mine own bosom.
15 But in mine †adversity they rejoiced, and gathered themselves together:
Yea, the abjects gathered themselves together against me, and I knew it not;
They did ttear me, and ceased not:
16 With uhypocritical mockers in feasts,
They xgnashed upon me with their teeth.
17 Lord, how long wilt thou ylook on?
Rescue my soul from their destructions,
†My darling from the lions.
18 zI will give thee thanks in the great congregation:
I will praise thee among †much people.
But they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land.
21 Yea, they fopened their mouth wide against me,
And said, gAha, aha, our eye hath seen it.
O Lord, kbe not far from me.
Even unto my cause, my God and my Lord.
24 oJudge me, O Lord my God, according to thy righteousness;
And plet them not rejoice over me.
Let them not say, rWe have swallowed him up.
26 sLet them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that rejoice at mine hurt:
28 And cmy tongue shall speak of thy righteousness
And of thy praise all the day long.
