Psalms 109

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

Psalms 109:1 {To the chief Musician. Of David. A Psalm.} O God of my praise, be not silent: Psalms 109:2 For the mouth of the wicked [man] and the mouth of deceit are opened against me: they have spoken against me with a lying tongue, Psalms 109:3 And with words of hatred have they encompassed me; and they fight against me without a cause. Psalms 109:4 For my love they are mine adversaries; but I [give myself unto] prayer. Psalms 109:5 And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my love. Psalms 109:6 Set a wicked [man] over him, and let [the] adversary stand at his right hand; Psalms 109:7 When he shall be judged, let him go out guilty, and let his prayer become sin; Psalms 109:8 Let his days be few, let another take his office; Psalms 109:9 Let his sons be fatherless, and his wife a widow; Psalms 109:10 Let his sons be vagabonds and beg, and let them seek [their bread] far from their desolate places; Psalms 109:11 Let the usurer cast the net over all that he hath, and let strangers despoil his labour; Psalms 109:12 Let there be none to extend kindness unto him, neither let there be any to favour his fatherless children; Psalms 109:13 Let his posterity be cut off; in the generation following let their name be blotted out: Psalms 109:14 Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with Jehovah, and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out; Psalms 109:15 Let them be before Jehovah continually, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth:

He sheweth their sin.

Psalms 109:16 Because he remembered not to shew kindness, but persecuted the afflicted and needy man, and the broken in heart, to slay him. Psalms 109:17 And he loved cursing; so let it come unto him. And he delighted not in blessing; and let it be far from him. Psalms 109:18 And he clothed himself with cursing like his vestment; so let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones; Psalms 109:19 Let it be unto him as a garment with which he covereth himself, and for a girdle wherewith he is constantly girded. Psalms 109:20 Let this be the reward of mine adversaries from Jehovah, and of them that speak evil against my soul.

Complaining of his own misery, he prayeth for help.

Psalms 109:21 But do *thou* for me, Jehovah, Lord, for thy name's sake; because thy loving-kindness is good, deliver me: Psalms 109:22 For I am afflicted and needy, and my heart is wounded within me. Psalms 109:23 I am gone like a shadow when it lengtheneth; I am tossed about like the locust; Psalms 109:24 My knees are failing through fasting, and my flesh hath lost its fatness; Psalms 109:25 And I am become a reproach unto them; [when] they look upon me they shake their heads. Psalms 109:26 Help me, Jehovah my God; save me according to thy loving-kindness: Psalms 109:27 That they may know that this is thy hand; that *thou*, Jehovah, hast done it. Psalms 109:28 Let *them* curse, but bless *thou*; when they rise up, let them be ashamed, and let thy servant rejoice. Psalms 109:29 Let mine adversaries be clothed with confusion, and let them cover themselves with their shame as with a mantle.

He promiseth thankfulness.

Psalms 109:30 I will greatly celebrate Jehovah with my mouth; yea, I will praise him among the multitude. Psalms 109:31 For he standeth at the right hand of the needy, to save him from those that judge his soul.
