Psalms 35

David prayeth for this own safety, and his enemies' confusion.

Psalms 35:1 {A [Psalme] of Dauid.} Plead [my cause] (O LORD) with them that striue with mee: fight against them that fight against me. Psalms 35:2 Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand vp for mine helpe. Psalms 35:3 Draw out also the speare, and stop [the way] against them that persecute me: say vnto my soule, I [am] thy saluation. Psalms 35:4 Let them be confounded and put to shame that seeke after my soule: let them be turned backe and brought to confusion, that deuise my hurt. Psalms 35:5 Let them be as chaffe before the wind: and let the Angel of the LORD chase [them]. Psalms 35:6 Let their way be darke and slippery, and let the Angel of the LORD persecute them. Psalms 35:7 For without cause haue they hid for me their net [in] a pit, which without cause they haue digged for my soule. Psalms 35:8 Let destruction come vpon him at vnawares, and let his net that hee hath hid, catch himselfe: into that very destruction let him fall. Psalms 35:9 And my soule shalbe ioyfull in the LORD: it shall reioyce in his saluation. Psalms 35:10 All my bones shall say, LORD, who [is] like vnto thee which deliuerest the poore from him that is too strong for him, yea the poore and the needy, from him that spoileth him?

He complaineth of their wrongful dealing.

Psalms 35:11 False witnesses did rise vp they layd to my charge things that I knew not. Psalms 35:12 They rewarded mee euill for good, to the spoiling of my soule. Psalms 35:13 But as for me, when they were sicke, my clothing was sack-cloth: I humbled my soule with fasting, and my prayer returned into mine owne bosome. Psalms 35:14 I behaued my selfe as though [he had bene] my friend, [or] brother: I bowed downe heauily, as one that mourneth [for his] mother. Psalms 35:15 But in mine aduersitie they reioyced, and gathered themselues together: [yea], the abiects gathered themselues together against me, & I knew it not, they did teare [me], and ceased not, Psalms 35:16 With hypocriticall mockers in feasts: they gnashed vpon mee with their teeth. Psalms 35:17 Lord, how long wilt thou looke on? rescue my soule from their destructions, my darling from the lyons. Psalms 35:18 I will giue thee thankes in the great congregation: I will praise thee among much people. Psalms 35:19 Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully, reioyce ouer me: [neither] let them winke with the eye, that hate me without a cause. Psalms 35:20 For they speake not peace: but they deuise deceitfull matters against them that are quiet in the land. Psalms 35:21 Yea they opened their mouth wide against me, [and] saide, Aha, Aha, our eye hath seene [it].

Thereby he inciteth God against them.

Psalms 35:22 [This] thou hast seene (O LORD) keepe not silence: O Lord be not farre from me. Psalms 35:23 Stirre vp thy selfe and awake to my iudgement, [euen] vnto my cause, my God and my Lord. Psalms 35:24 Iudge me O LORD my God, according to thy righteousnesse, and let them not reioyce ouer me. Psalms 35:25 Let them not say in their hearts, Ah, so would we haue it: let them not say, We haue swallowed him vp. Psalms 35:26 Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together, that reioyce at mine hurt: let them bee cloathed with shame and dishonour, that magnifie [themselues] against me. Psalms 35:27 Let them shoute for ioy, and bee glad that fauour my righteous cause: yea let them say continually, Let the LORD bee magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his seruant Psalms 35:28 And my tongue shall speake of thy righteousnesse, [and] of thy praise all the day long.
