    Psalms 109
    King James Version

    1 Hold not thy peace,
    O God of my praise;​
    2 For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful
    are opened against me:
    they have spoken against me with a lying tongue.​
    3 They compassed me about also with words of hatred;
    and fought against me without a cause.​
    4 For my love they are my adversaries:
    but I give myself unto prayer.​
    5 And they have rewarded me evil for good,
    and hatred for my love.​

    6 Set thou a wicked man over him:
    and let Satan stand at his right hand.​
    7 When he shall be judged, let him be condemned:
    and let his prayer become sin.​
    8 Let his days be few;
    and let another take his office.​
    9 Let his children be fatherless,
    and his wife a widow.​
    10 Let his children be continually vagabonds, and beg:
    let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places.​
    11 Let the extortioner catch all that he hath;
    and let the strangers spoil his labour.​
    12 Let there be none to extend mercy unto him:
    neither let there be any to favour his fatherless children.​
    13 Let his posterity be cut off;
    and in the generation following let their name be blotted out.​

    14 Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the Lord;
    and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.​
    15 Let them be before the Lord continually,
    that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth.​
    16 Because that he remembered not to shew mercy,
    but persecuted the poor and needy man,
    that he might even slay the broken in heart.​
    17 As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him:
    as he delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him.​
    18 As he clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment,
    so let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones.​
    19 Let it be unto him as the garment which covereth him,
    and for a girdle wherewith he is girded continually.​
    20 Let this be the reward of mine adversaries from the Lord,
    and of them that speak evil against my soul.​

    21 But do thou for me, O God the Lord, for thy name's sake:
    because thy mercy is good, deliver thou me.​
    22 For I am poor and needy,
    and my heart is wounded within me.​
    23 I am gone like the shadow when it declineth:
    I am tossed up and down as the locust.​
    24 My knees are weak through fasting;
    and my flesh faileth of fatness.​
    25 I became also a reproach unto them:
    when they looked upon me they shaked their heads.​

    26 Help me, O Lord my God:
    O save me according to thy mercy:​
    27 That they may know that this is thy hand;
    that thou, Lord, hast done it.​
    28 Let them curse, but bless thou:
    when they arise, let them be ashamed;
    but let thy servant rejoice.​
    29 Let mine adversaries be clothed with shame,
    and let them cover themselves with their own confusion, as with a mantle.​

    30 I will greatly praise the Lord with my mouth;
    yea, I will praise him among the multitude.​
    31 For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor,
    to save him from those that condemn his soul.
