Tehillim (Book of Psalms), Chapter 109

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 For the Leader. A Psalm of David. O G-d of my praise, keep not silence;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of deceit have they opened against me; they have spoken unto me with a lying tongue.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 They compassed me about also with words of hatred, and fought against me without a cause.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 In return for my love they are my adversaries; but I am all prayer.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 And they have laid upon me evil for good, and hatred for my love:

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 'Set Thou a wicked man over him; and let an adversary stand at his right hand.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 When he is judged, let him go forth condemned; and let his prayer be turned into sin.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 Let his days be few; let another take his charge.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 Let his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 Let his children be vagabonds, and beg; and let them seek their bread out of their desolate places.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 Let the creditor distrain all that he hath; and let strangers make spoil of his labour.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 Let there be none to extend kindness unto him; neither let there be any to be gracious unto his fatherless children.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 Let his posterity be cut off; in the generation following let their name be blotted out.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 Let the iniquity of his fathers be brought to remembrance unto HaShem; and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 Let them be before HaShem continually, that He may cut off the memory of them from the earth.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 Because that he remembered not to do kindness, but persecuted the poor and needy man, and the broken in heart he was ready to slay.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'17 Yea, he loved cursing, and it came unto him; and he delighted not in blessing, and it is far from him.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000011-QINU`"'18 He clothed himself also with cursing as with his raiment, and it is come into his inward parts like water, and like oil into his bones.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000012-QINU`"'19 Let it be unto him as the garment which he putteth on, and for the girdle wherewith he is girded continually.'

'"`UNIQ--named-00000013-QINU`"'20 This would mine adversaries effect from HaShem, and they that speak evil against my soul.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000014-QINU`"'21 But Thou, O GOD the L-rd, deal with me for Thy name's sake; because Thy mercy is good, deliver Thou me.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000015-QINU`"'22 For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000016-QINU`"'23 I am gone like the shadow when it lengtheneth; I am shaken off as the locust.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000017-QINU`"'24 My knees totter through fasting; and my flesh is lean, and hath no fatness.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000018-QINU`"'25 I am become also a taunt unto them; when they see me, they shake their head.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000019-QINU`"'26 Help me, O HaShem my G-d; O save me according to Thy mercy;

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001A-QINU`"'27 That they may know that this is Thy hand; that Thou, HaShem, hast done it.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001B-QINU`"'28 Let them curse, but bless Thou; when they arise, they shall be put to shame, but Thy servant shall rejoice.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001C-QINU`"'29 Mine adversaries shall be clothed with confusion, and shall put on their own shame as a robe.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001D-QINU`"'30 I will give great thanks unto HaShem with my mouth; yea, I will praise Him among the multitude;

'"`UNIQ--named-0000001E-QINU`"'31 Because He standeth at the right hand of the needy, to save him from them that judge his soul.
