Rotherham's Emphasized Bible

Psalms 35

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

Psalms 35:1 {David's.} Contend, O Yahweh, with them who contend with me, Make war upon them who make war upon me. Psalms 35:2 Grasp buckler and shield, and arise in my help; Psalms 35:3 Then draw the spear, and close up against my pursuers, Say to my soul, Thy salvation, I am! Psalms 35:4 Let them be ashamed and confounded, who are seeking my life,—Let them turn back and be put to the blush, who are devising my hurt: Psalms 35:5 Let them be as chaff before the wind, with, the messenger of Yahweh, pressing them on: Psalms 35:6 Let their way become dark and slippery, with, the messenger of Yahweh, pursuing them. Psalms 35:7 For, without cause, have they hid for me, in a ditch, their net,—Without cause, have they digged [a pit] for my life. Psalms 35:8 There shall reach him a ruin he could not know,—Yea, his own net which he hath hidden, shall capture him, Into that ruin, shall he fall! Psalms 35:9 But, my soul, shall exult in Yahweh,—shall be glad in his salvation. Psalms 35:10 All my bones, shall say—O Yahweh, who is like unto thee? Rescuing the oppressed from one stronger than he, Yea the oppressed and the needy, from their spoiler.

He complaineth of their wrongful dealing.

Psalms 35:11 There rise up witnesses helping forward violence and wrong, What I know not, they demand of me: Psalms 35:12 They repay me evil for good, Bereaving my soul. Psalms 35:13 But, as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth, I humbled, with fasting, my soul, though, my prayer, unto mine own bosom, might return: Psalms 35:14 Like as for a friend, like as for a brother of mine own, I walked to and fro, As though mourning for a mother, I gloomily bowed myself down. Psalms 35:15 But, in mine overthrow, have they rejoiced, and gathered themselves together,—There gathered themselves together against me foolish men, and I knew it not, They have torn in pieces, and not been silent; Psalms 35:16 Amidst profane praters of perversion, have they gnashed upon me with their teeth. Psalms 35:17 My Lord! how long wilt thou look on? Bring back my soul out of their raging, from among lions, my solitary self. Psalms 35:18 I will thank thee, in the midst of a great convocation,—In the midst of a mighty people, will I praise thee. Psalms 35:19 Let not them who are falsely my foes rejoice over me, As for them who hate me without cause, let them not wink the eye! Psalms 35:20 For, no salvation, will they utter,—But, against the quiet of the land, deceitful things, do they devise; Psalms 35:21 Yea they have opened wide against me their mouth, They have said, Aha! Aha! our own eye, hath seen!

Thereby he inciteth God against them.

Psalms 35:22 Thou hast seen, O Yahweh, do not keep silence! O My Lord! be not far from me: Psalms 35:23 Bestir thyself and wake up, to my vindication, O my God and My Lord!—to my plea: Psalms 35:24 Vindicate me according to thy righteousness, O Yahweh, my God! And let them not rejoice over me: Psalms 35:25 Let them not say in their heart, Aha! to our mind! Let them not say, We have swallowed him up! Psalms 35:26 Let them turn pale, and then at once blush, who are rejoicing at my misfortune,—Let them be clothed with shame and confusion, who are magnifying themselves against me. Psalms 35:27 Let them shout in triumph and rejoice, who are desiring my justification; And let them say continually, Yahweh be magnified, Who hath taken pleasure in the prosperity of his servant. Psalms 35:28 Mine own tongue also, shall softly utter thy righteousness,—All the day long,—thy praise!
