Psalms 109

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

Psalms 109:1 {To him that excelleth. A Psalme of Dauid.} Holde not thy tongue, O God of my praise. Psalms 109:2 For the mouth of the wicked, and the mouth full of deceite are opened vpon me: they haue spoken to me with a lying tongue. Psalms 109:3 They compassed me about also with words of hatred, and fought against me without a cause. Psalms 109:4 For my friendship they were mine aduersaries, but I gaue my selfe to praier. Psalms 109:5 And they haue rewarded me euil for good, and hatred for my friendship. Psalms 109:6 Set thou the wicked ouer him, and let the aduersarie stand at his right hand. Psalms 109:7 Whe he shalbe iudged, let him be condemned, and let his praier be turned into sinne. Psalms 109:8 Let his daies be fewe, and let another take his charge. Psalms 109:9 Let his children be fatherlesse, and his wife a widowe. Psalms 109:10 Let his children be vagabounds & beg and seeke bread, comming out of their places destroyed. Psalms 109:11 Let the extortioner catch al that he hath, and let the strangers spoile his labour. Psalms 109:12 Let there be none to extende mercie vnto him: neither let there be any to shewe mercie vpon his fatherlesse children. Psalms 109:13 Let his posteritie be destroied, and in the generation following let their name be put out. Psalms 109:14 Let the iniquitie of his fathers bee had in remembrance with the Lord: and let not the sinne of his mother be done away. Psalms 109:15 But let them alway be before the Lorde, that he may cut off their memorial from ye earth.

He sheweth their sin.

Psalms 109:16 Because he remembred not to shew mercie, but persecuted the afflicted and poore man, and the sorowfull hearted to slay him. Psalms 109:17 As he loued cursing, so shall it come vnto him, and as he loued not blessing, so shall it be farre from him. Psalms 109:18 As he clothed himselfe with cursing like a rayment, so shall it come into his bowels like water, and like oyle into his bones. Psalms 109:19 Let it be vnto him as a garment to couer him, and for a girdle, wherewith he shalbe alway girded. Psalms 109:20 Let this be the rewarde of mine aduersarie 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 thou, O Lorde my God, deale with me according vnto thy Name: deliuer me, (for thy mercie is good) Psalms 109:22 Because I am poore and needie, and mine heart is wounded within me. Psalms 109:23 I depart like the shadowe that declineth, and am shaken off as the grashopper. Psalms 109:24 My knees are weake through fasting, and my flesh hath lost all fatnes. Psalms 109:25 I became also a rebuke vnto them: they that looked vpon me, shaked their heads. Psalms 109:26 Helpe me, O Lord my God: saue me according to thy mercie. Psalms 109:27 And they shal know, that this is thine hand, and that thou, Lord, hast done it. Psalms 109:28 Though they curse, yet thou wilt blesse: they shall arise & be confounded, but thy seruant shall reioyce. Psalms 109:29 Let mine aduersaries be clothed with shame, and let them couer themselues with their confusion, as with a cloke.

He promiseth thankfulness.

Psalms 109:30 I will giue thankes vnto the Lorde greatly with my mouth & praise him among ye multitude. Psalms 109:31 For he will stand at the right hand of the poore, to saue him from them that woulde condemne his soule.
