NASB — Psalms 35 — KJV

Prayer for Rescue from Enemies.

[A Psalm] of David.

  1 Contend, O LORD, with those who acontend with me;
  Fight against those who bfight against me.
  2 Take hold of Iabuckler and shield
  And rise up for bmy help.
  3 Draw also the spear and Ithe battle-axe to meet those who pursue me;
  Say to my soul, “I am ayour salvation.”
  4 Let those be aashamed and dishonored who seek my Ilife;
  Let those be bturned back and humiliated who devise evil against me.
  5 Let them be alike chaff before the wind,
  With the angel of the LORD driving [them] on.
  6 Let their way be dark and aslippery,
  With the angel of the LORD pursuing them.
  7 For awithout cause they bhid their net for me;
  Without cause they dug a Ipit for my soul.
  8 Let adestruction come upon him unawares,
  And blet the net which he hid catch himself;
  Into that very cdestruction let him fall.

  10 All my abones will say, “LORD, bwho is like You,
  Who delivers the afflicted from him cwho is too strong for him,
  And dthe afflicted and the needy from him who robs him?”
  11 aMalicious witnesses rise up;
  They ask me of things that I do not know.
  12 They arepay me evil for good,
  [To] the bereavement of my soul.
  13 But as for me, awhen they were sick, my bclothing was sackcloth;
  I chumbled my soul with fasting,
  And my dprayer kept returning to my bosom.
  14 I went about as though it were my friend or brother;
  I abowed down Imourning, as one who sorrows for a mother.
  15 But aat my Istumbling they rejoiced and gathered themselves together;
  The IIbsmiters whom I did not know gathered together against me,
  They IIIcslandered me without ceasing.
  16 Like godless jesters at a feast,
  They agnashed at me with their teeth.

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

1 ¶ [[[A Psalm] of David.]] Plead [my cause], O LORD, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me. 2 Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help. 3 Draw out also the spear, and stop [the way] against them that persecute me: say unto my soul, I [am] thy salvation. 4 Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul: let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt. 5 Let them be as chaff before the wind: and let the angel of the LORD chase [them]. 6 Let their way be dark and slippery: and let the angel of the LORD persecute them. 7 For without cause have they hid for me their net [in] a pit, [which] without cause they have digged for my soul. 8 Let destruction come upon him at unawares; and let his net that he hath hid catch himself: into that very destruction let him fall. 9 And my soul shall be joyful in the LORD: it shall rejoice in his salvation. 10 All my bones shall say, LORD, who [is] like unto thee, which deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?

He complaineth of their wrongful dealing.

11 False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge [things] that I knew not. 12 They rewarded me evil for good [to] the spoiling of my soul. 13 But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing [was] sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom. 14 I behaved myself as though [he had been] my friend [or] brother: I bowed down heavily, as one that mourneth [for his] mother. 15 But in mine adversity they rejoiced, and gathered themselves together: [yea], the abjects gathered themselves together against me, and I knew [it] not; they did tear [me], and ceased not: 16 With hypocritical mockers in feasts, they gnashed upon me with their teeth. 17 Lord, how long wilt thou look on? rescue my soul from their destructions, my darling from the lions. 18 I will give thee thanks in the great congregation: I will praise thee among much people. 19 Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: [neither] let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause. 20 For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters against [them that are] quiet in the land. 21 Yea, they opened their mouth wide against me, [and] said, Aha, aha, our eye hath seen [it].
