019:109:001
Hold not thy peace,
O God of my praise;


019:109:002
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.


019:109:003
They compassed me about also with words of hatred;
and fought against me without a cause.


019:109:004
For my love they are my adversaries:
but I give myself unto prayer.


019:109:005
And they have rewarded me evil for good,
and hatred for my love.


019:109:006
Set thou a wicked man over him:
and let Satan stand at his right hand.


019:109:007
When he shall be judged,
let him be condemned:
and let his prayer become sin.


019:109:008
Let his days be few;
and let another take his office.


019:109:009
Let his children be fatherless,
and his wife a widow.


019:109:010
Let his children be continually vagabonds,
and beg:
let them seek their bread also out of their desolate places.


019:109:011
Let the extortioner catch all that he hath;
and let the strangers spoil his labour.


019:109:012
Let there be none to extend mercy unto him:
neither let there be any to favour his fatherless children.


019:109:013
Let his posterity be cut off;
and in the generation following let their name be blotted out.


019:109:014
Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered with the LORD;
and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.


019:109:015
Let them be before the LORD continually,
that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth.


019:109:016
Because that he remembered not to shew mercy,
but persecuted the poor and needy man,
that he might even slay the broken in heart.


019:109:017
As he loved cursing,
so let it come unto him:
as he delighted not in blessing,
so let it be far from him.


019:109:018
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.


019:109:019
Let it be unto him as the garment which covereth him,
and for a girdle wherewith he is girded continually.


019:109:020
Let this be the reward of mine adversaries from the LORD,
and of them that speak evil against my soul.


019:109:021
But do thou for me,
O GOD the Lord,
for thy name's sake:
because thy mercy is good,
deliver thou me.


019:109:022
For I am poor and needy,
and my heart is wounded within me.


019:109:023
I am gone like the shadow when it declineth:
I am tossed up and down as the locust.


019:109:024
My knees are weak through fasting;
and my flesh faileth of fatness.


019:109:025
I became also a reproach unto them:
when they looked upon me they shaked their heads.


019:109:026
Help me,
O LORD my God:
O save me according to thy mercy:


019:109:027
That they may know that this is thy hand;
that thou,
LORD,
hast done it.


019:109:028
Let them curse,
but bless thou:
when they arise,
let them be ashamed;
but let thy servant rejoice.


019:109:029
Let mine adversaries be clothed with shame,
and let them cover themselves with their own confusion,
as with a mantle.


019:109:030
I will greatly praise the LORD with my mouth;
yea,
I will praise him among the multitude.


019:109:031
For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor,
to save him from those that condemn his soul.
