Psalms 109

David, complaining of his slanderous enemies, under the person of Judas devoteth them.

Psalms 109:1 {To the chiefe Musician, A Psalme of Dauid.} Hold not thy peace, O God of my praise. Psalms 109:2 For the mouth of the wicked, and the mouth of the deceitfull are opened against mee: they haue spoken against me with a lying tongue. Psalms 109:3 They compassed mee about also with wordes of hatred: and fought against me without a cause. Psalms 109:4 For my loue, they are my aduersaries: but I [giue my selfe vnto] prayer. Psalms 109:5 And they haue rewarded me euill for good: and hatred for my loue. Psalms 109:6 Set thou a wicked man ouer him: and let Satan stand at his right hand. Psalms 109:7 When he shall be iudged, let him be condemned: and let his prayer become sinne. Psalms 109:8 Let his dayes be few: [and] let another take his office. Psalms 109:9 Let his children bee fatherlesse: and his wife a widow. Psalms 109:10 Let his children bee continually vagabonds, & begge: let them seeke [their bread] also out of their desolate places. Psalms 109:11 Let the extortioner catch all that he hath: and let the strangers spoile his labour. Psalms 109:12 Let there be none to extend mercy vnto him: neither let there be any to fauour his fatherlesse children. Psalms 109:13 Let his posteritie be cut off: [and] in the generation folowing let their name be blotted out. Psalms 109:14 Let the iniquitie of his fathers be remembred with the LORD: and let not the sinne of his mother be blotted out. Psalms 109:15 Let them be before the LORD continually: that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth.

He sheweth their sin.

Psalms 109:16 Because that he remembred not to shew mercy, but persecuted the poore and needy man: that he might euen slay the broken in heart. Psalms 109:17 As he loued cursing, so let it come vnto him: as hee delighted not in blessing, so let it be farre from him. Psalms 109:18 As he clothed himselfe with cursing like as with his garment: so let it come into his bowels like water, and like oyle into his bones. Psalms 109:19 Let it be vnto him as the garment [which] couereth him: and for a girdle [wherewith] he is girded continually. Psalms 109:20 Let this be the reward of mine aduersaries from the LORD: and of them that speake euill against my soule.

Complaining of his own misery, he prayeth for help.

Psalms 109:21 But do thou for me, O GOD the Lord, for thy Names sake: because thy mercie [is] good: deliuer thou me. Psalms 109:22 For I am poore [and] needie: and my heart is wounded within me. Psalms 109:23 I am gone like the shadow, when it declineth: I am tossed vp and downe as the locust. Psalms 109:24 My knees are weake through fasting: and my flesh faileth of fatnesse. Psalms 109:25 I became also a reproch vnto them: [when] they looked vpon me, they shaked their heads. Psalms 109:26 Helpe me, O LORD my God: O saue me according to thy mercie. Psalms 109:27 That they may know, that this is thy hand: [that] thou, LORD, hast done it. Psalms 109:28 Let them curse, but blesse thou: when they arise, let them be ashamed, but let thy seruant reioyce. Psalms 109:29 Let mine aduersaries be clothed with shame: and let them couer them selues with their owne confusion, as with a mantle.

He promiseth thankfulness.

Psalms 109:30 I will greatly praise the LORD with my mouth: yea I will praise him among the multitude. Psalms 109:31 For he shal stand at the right hand of the poore: to saue [him] from those that condemne his soule.
