Chapter 108

1


 

  Unto the end, a psalm for David.  

 

 


2


 

  O God, be not thou silent in thy praise: for the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful man is opened against me.  

 

 


3


 

  They have spoken against with deceitful tongues; and they have compassed me about with words of hatred; and have fought against me without cause.  

 

 


4


 

  Instead of making me a return of love, they detracted me: but I gave myself to prayer.  

 

 


5


 

  And they repaid me evil for good: and hatred for my love.  

 

 


6


 

  Set thou the sinner over him: and may the devil stand at his right hand.  

 

 


7


 

  When he is judged, may he go out condemned; and may his prayer be turned to sin.  

 

 


8


 

  May his days be few: and his bishopric let another take.  

 

 


9


 

  May his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.  

 

 


10


 

  Let his children be carried about vagabonds, and beg; and let them be cast out of their dwellings.  

 

 


11


 

  May the userer search all his substance: and let strangers plunder his labours.  

 

 


12


 

  May there be none to help him: nor none to pity his fatherless offspring.  

 

 


13


 

  May his posterity be cut off; in one generation may his name be blotted out.  

 

 


14


 

  May the iniquity of his fathers be remembered in the sight of the Lord: and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.  

 

 


15


 

  May they be before the lord continually, and let the memory of them perish from the earth:  

 

 


16


 

  because he remembered not to show mercy,  

 

 


17


 

  But persecuted the poor man and the beggar; and the broken in heart, to put him to death.  

 

 


18


 

  And he loved cursing, and it shall come unto him: and he would not have blessing, and it shall be far from him. And he put on cursing, like a garment: and it went in like water into his entrails, and like oil in his bones.  

 

 


19


 

  May it be unto him like a garment which covereth him; and like a girdle with which he is girded continually.  

 

 


20


 

  This is the work of them who detract me before the Lord; and who speak evils against my soul.  

 

 


21


 

  But thou, O Lord, do with for thy names sake: because thy mercy is sweet. Do thou deliver me.  

 

 


22


 

  for I am poor and needy, and my heart is troubled within me.  

 

 


23


 

  I am taken away like the shadow when it declineth: and I am shaken off as locusts.  

 

 


24


 

  My knees are weakened through fasting: and my flesh is changed for oil.  

 

 


25


 

  And I am become a reproach to them: they saw me and they shaked their heads,  

 

 


26


 

  Help me, O Lord my God; save me according to thy mercy.  

 

 


27


 

  And let them know that this is thy hand: and that thou, O Lord, hast done it.  

 

 


28


 

  They will curse and thou will bless: let them that rise up against me be confounded: but thy servant shall rejoice.  

 

 


29


 

  Let them that detract me be clothed with shame: and let them be covered with the their confusion as with a double cloak.  

 

 


30


 

  I will give great thanks to the Lord with my mouth: and in the midst of many I will praise him.  

 

 


31


 

  Because he hath stood at the right hand of the poor, to save my soul from persecutors
