Psalms 35

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

Psalms 35:1 {Of Dauid.} Pleade thou my cause O God, with them that striue with me: and fight thou agaynst them that fight against me. Psalms 35:2 Lay hand vppon a shielde & buckler: and stande vp to helpe me. Psalms 35:3 Bryng foorth the speare, and stop [the way] against them that persecute me: say vnto my soule, I am thy saluation. Psalms 35:4 Let them be confounded and put to shame that seeke after my soule: let them be turned backe and brought to cofusion, that imagine mischiefe for me. Psalms 35:5 Let them be as dust before the winde: and let the angell of God scatter [them.] Psalms 35:6 Let their way be darke and slipperie: & let the angell of God persecute them. Psalms 35:7 For without a cause they haue priuily layde for me a pit [full] of their nettes: without a cause they haue made a digyng vnto my soule. Psalms 35:8 Let a sodayne destruction come vpon hym vnawares: and his net that he hath layde priuily catch hym selfe, let him fall into it with [his owne] destruction. Psalms 35:9 [And] my soule shalbe ioyfull in God: it shall reioyce in his saluation. Psalms 35:10 All my bones shall say, God who is lyke vnto thee? whiche deliuerest the poore from hym that is to strong for him: yea the poore and him that is in miserie, from him that spoyleth him.

He complaineth of their wrongful dealing.

Psalms 35:11 False witnesse did rise vp: they layde thinges to my charge that I know not. Psalms 35:12 They rewarded me euill for good: to the great discomfort of my soule. Psalms 35:13 Neuerthelesse, when they were sicke I did put on sackcloth: I afflicted my soule with fasting, and my prayer returned into myne owne bosome. Psalms 35:14 I kept them company whersoeuer they went, as though they had ben my frende or brother: I went heauyly, as one that mourned for his mother. Psalms 35:15 But in mine aduersitie they reioysed and gathered them together: yea, the very abiectes came together against me, yer I wyst they rented me a peeces and ceassed not. Psalms 35:16 With hypocrites, scoffers, and parasites: they gnashed vpon me with their teeth. Psalms 35:17 Lorde howe long wylt thou looke [vpon this]: O deliuer my soule from their raginges, and my dearling from Lions whelpes. Psalms 35:18 So I wyll confesse it vnto thee in a great congregation: I will prayse thee among muche people. Psalms 35:19 O let not my deceiptfull enemies triumph ouer me: let them not winke with an eye, that hate me without a cause. Psalms 35:20 For they speake not peace: but they imagine deceiptfull wordes agaynst them that [liue] quietly in the lande. Psalms 35:21 They gaped vpon me with their mouthes: and said this is well, this is wel, our eye hath seene.

Thereby he inciteth God against them.

Psalms 35:22 Thou hast seene [this] O God, holde not thy tongue [then:] go not farre from me O Lorde. Psalms 35:23 Stirre thou and awake O my God and my Lorde: to iudge my cause and controuersie. Psalms 35:24 Iudge me according to thy righteousnesse O God my Lorde: and let them not triumph ouer me. Psalms 35:25 Let them not say in their heart, it is as we woulde haue it: neither let them say, we haue deuoured hym. Psalms 35:26 Let them be put to confusion & shame [all] together that reioyce at my trouble: let them be clothed with rebuke and dishonour that exalt them selues against me. Psalms 35:27 Let them triumph with gladnesse and reioyce that be delighted with my righteousnesse: let them say alwayes, blessed be God whiche hath pleasure in the prosperitie of his seruaunt. Psalms 35:28 And my tongue shalbe talking of thy righteousnesse: and of thy prayse all the day long.
