David's prayer against his enemies

Prayer of rescue

Of David

35:1 Plead [my cause], O YHWH (יהוה), with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me.

35:2 Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.

35:3 Draw out also the spear, and stop [the way] against them that persecute me: say unto my nefesh, I [am] Thy salvation.

35:4 Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my nefesh: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.

35:5 Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of YHWH (יהוה) chase [them].

35:6 Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of YHWH (יהוה) persecute them.

35:7 For without cause have they hid for me their net [in] a pit, [which] without cause they have digged for my nefesh.

35:8 Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let His net that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall.

35:9 And my nefesh shall be joyful in YHWH (יהוה): it shall rejoice in His salvation.

35:10 All my bones shall say, YHWH (יהוה), who [is] like unto thee, which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?

35:11 False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge [things] that I knew not.

35:12 They rewarded me evil for good [to] the spoiling of my nefesh.

35:13 But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing [was] sackcloth: I humbled my nefesh with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.

35:14 I behaved myself as though [he had been] my friend [or] brother: I bowed down heavily, as one that mourneth [for his] mother.

35:15 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 tear [me], and ceased not:

35:16 With hypocritical mockers in feasts, they gnashed upon me with their teeth.

35:17 **YHWH, how long wilt thou look on? rescue my nefesh from their destructions, my darling from the lions.

35:18 I will give thee thanks in the great congregation: I will praise thee among much people.

35:19 Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: [neither] let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause.

35:20 For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters against [them that are] quiet in the land.

35:21 Yea, they opened their mouth wide against me, [and] said, Aha, aha, our eye hath seen [it].

35:22 [This] thou hast seen, O YHWH (יהוה): keep not silence: O **YHWH, be not far from me.

35:23 Stir up Thyself, and awake to my judgment, [even] unto my cause, Elohai and my **YHWH.

35:24 Judge me, O YHWH (יהוה) Elohai, according to Thy Tzedakah; and let them not rejoice over me.

35:25 Let them not say in their hearts, Ah, so would we have it: let them not say, We have swallowed him up.

35:26 Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that rejoice at mine hurt: let them be clothed with shame and dishonour that magnify [themselves] against me.

35:27 Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my tzaddikim cause: yea, let them say continually, Let YHWH (יהוה) be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.

35:28 And my tongue shall speak of Thy Tzedakah [and] of Thy praise all the day long.
