Psalms 109

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

Psalms 109:1 {To the chiefe musition, a psalme of Dauid.} Holde not thy tongue: O thou the Lorde of my prayse. Psalms 109:2 For the mouth of the vngodly and the mouth of the deceiptfull is opened vpon me: they haue spoken against me with a false tongue. Psalms 109:3 And they haue compassed me about with hatefull wordes: and fought against me without a cause. Psalms 109:4 For the loue that I bare vnto them, they are become mine aduersaries: but I geue my selfe vnto prayer. Psalms 109:5 Thus haue they rewarded me euyll for good: and hatred for my good wyll. Psalms 109:6 Set thou an vngodly man to be ruler ouer him: and let Satan stande at his right hande. Psalms 109:7 When sentence is geuen vpon hym, let him be condemned: and let his prayer be turned into sinne. Psalms 109:8 Let his dayes be fewe: and let another take his office. Psalms 109:9 Let his chyldren be fatherlesse: and his wyfe a wydowe. Psalms 109:10 Let his children be vagaboundes and go a begging: and let them seeke [foode] out of their barren groundes. Psalms 109:11 Let the extortioner bryng into his snare all that he hath: and let straungers spoyle his labour. Psalms 109:12 Let there be no man to shewe hym any gentlenes: nor to haue compassion vpon his fatherlesse children. Psalms 109:13 Let his posteritie come to destruction: and in the next generation let his name be cleane put out. Psalms 109:14 Let the wyckednes of his fathers be had in remembraunce in the sight of God: and let not the sinne of his mother be wyped away. Psalms 109:15 Let them be alway before God: that he may roote out the memorial of them from the earth.

He sheweth their sin.

Psalms 109:16 Because that he remembred not to do good: but he persecuted the afflicted and poore man, and hym whose heart was broken with sorow, that he might take his life from hym. Psalms 109:17 His delight was in cursing, and it shal happen vnto him: he loued not blessing, therfore it hath ben farre from him. Psalms 109:18 He clothed hym selfe with cursing, as with his garment: and it hath entred into his bowels like water, and like oyle into his bones. Psalms 109:19 Let it be vnto hym as the garment that he is wrapt in: and as the gyrdle that he is alway gyrded withall. Psalms 109:20 Let this rewarde be from God vnto myne aduersaries: and vnto those that speake euill against my soule.

Complaining of his own misery, he prayeth for help.

Psalms 109:21 But thou O God my Lorde, do vnto me according vnto thy name: for sweete is thy mercy. Psalms 109:22 Deliuer me, for truely I am afflicted: and I am poore, and my heart is wounded within me. Psalms 109:23 I passe away like a vading shadowe: and I am dryuen from place to place lyke the grashopper. Psalms 109:24 My knees are weake through fasting: my fleshe is dryed vp for want of fatnesse. Psalms 109:25 I am become also a reproche vnto them: they gase vpon me [and] they shake their head. Psalms 109:26 Helpe me O my Lorde: oh saue me according to thy mercy. Psalms 109:27 And let the know how that this is thy hande: & that thou O God hast done it. Psalms 109:28 They will curse, but thou wylt blesse: they wyl rise vp [against me] but let them be confounded, and thy seruaunt wyll reioyce. Psalms 109:29 Let mine aduersaries be clothed with shame: & let them couer the selues with their owne cofusion, as with a garment.

He promiseth thankfulness.

Psalms 109:30 As for me I will greatly prayse God with my mouth: and I wyll prayse hym among the multitude. Psalms 109:31 For he wyll stande at the right hande of the poore: to saue him from the iudges of his soule.
