1: God of my praise, don't remain silent,
2: for they have opened the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of deceit against me. They have spoken to me with a lying tongue.
3: They have also surrounded me with words of hatred, and fought against me without a cause.
4: In return for my love, they are my adversaries; but I am in prayer.
5: They have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love.
6: Set a wicked man over him. Let an adversary stand at his right hand.
7: When he is judged, let him come forth guilty. Let his prayer be turned into sin.
8: Let his days be few. Let another take his office.
9: Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.
10: Let his children be wandering beggars. Let them be sought from their ruins.
11: Let the creditor seize all that he has. Let strangers plunder the fruit of his labor.
12: Let there be no one to extend kindness to him, neither let there be anyone 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 by Yahweh. Don't let the sin of his mother be blotted out.
15: Let them be before Yahweh continually, that he may cut off their memory from the earth;
16: because he didn't remember to show kindness, but persecuted the poor and needy man, the broken in heart, to kill them.
17: Yes, he loved cursing, and it came to him. He didn't delight in blessing, and it was far from him.
18: He clothed himself also with cursing as with his garment. It came into his inward parts like water, like oil into his bones.
19: Let it be to him as the clothing with which he covers himself, for the belt that is always around him.
20: This is the reward of my adversaries from Yahweh, of those who speak evil against my soul.
21: But deal with me, Yahweh the Lord, for your name's sake, because your loving kindness is good, deliver me;
22: for I am poor and needy. My heart is wounded within me.
23: I fade away like an evening shadow. I am shaken off like a locust.
24: My knees are weak through fasting. My body is thin and lacks fat.
25: I have also become a reproach to them. When they see me, they shake their head.
26: Help me, Yahweh, my God. Save me according to your loving kindness;
27: that they may know that this is your hand; that you, Yahweh, have done it.
28: They may curse, but you bless. When they arise, they will be shamed, but your servant shall rejoice.
29: Let my adversaries be clothed with dishonor. Let them cover themselves with their own shame as with a robe.
30: I will give great thanks to Yahweh with my mouth. Yes, I will praise him among the multitude.
31: For he will stand at the right hand of the needy, to save him from those who judge his soul. Psalm 110 A Psalm by David.
