Matthew Bible

Psalms 35

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

Psalms 35:1 {Of Dauid.} Stryue thou with them, O lord, that stryue with me, fight thou against them that fight against me. Psalms 35:2 Laye hande vpon the shylde and speare, and stande vp to helpe me. Psalms 35:3 Drawe out thy swearde, and stoppe the waye agaynst them that persecute me, saye vnto my soule: I am thy helpe. Psalms 35:4 Let them be confounded & put to shame, that seke after my soule: let theym be turned back and brought to confusion, that ymagin mischiefe for me. Psalms 35:5 Let them be as the dust before the winde, and the aungel of the Lord scateryng them. Psalms 35:6 Let their waye be darcke and slippery, & the aungell of the Lorde to persecute them. Psalms 35:7 For they haue priuely layed their nette to destroye me without a cause, yea, & made a pytte for my soule, which I neuer deserued. Psalms 35:8 Let a soden destruccion come vpon hym vnwares, & the nette that he had layed pryuely, catche hym selfe, that he maye fall into hys owne mischief. Psalms 35:9 But let my soule be ioyfull in the Lorde, and reioyse in hys helpe. Psalms 35:10 All my bones shall saye: Lorde who is lyke vnto the? which deliuerest the poore from those that are to strong for him, yea, the poore and the nedy from hys robbers.

He complaineth of their wrongful dealing.

Psalms 35:11 False witnesses are rysen vp, and laye to my charge thinges that I know not. Psalms 35:12 They rewarde me euell for good, too the great discomforte of my soule. Psalms 35:13 Neuerthelesse, when they were sycke, I put on a sacke cloth: I humbled my soule with fastyng, and my prayer turned into myne owne bosome. Psalms 35:14 I behaued my selfe as though it had bene my frende or my brother, I went heuely, as one that mourneth for hys mother. Psalms 35:15 But in myne aduersitie they reioyse, & gather them together. Yea, the very lame come together agaynste me vnwares, makynge mowes at me, and ceasse not. Psalms 35:16 With the gredy and scorneful hypocrites they gnasshed vpon me with their teeth. Psalms 35:17 Lorde, whan wilt thou loke vpon thys? O restore my soule from the wycked rumoure of them, my dearlynge from the lyons? Psalms 35:18 So will I geue the thanckes in the great congregacion, and prayse the among muche people. Psalms 35:19 O let them not triumphe ouer me, that are myne enemyes for naught: O let them not winke with their eyes, that hate me without a cause. Psalms 35:20 And why? their comening is not for peace but they ymagyn false wordes agaynste the outcastes of the lande. Psalms 35:21 They gape vpon me with their mouthes, saying: there, there: we se it with our eyes.

Thereby he inciteth God against them.

Psalms 35:22 This thou seist, O lorde: holde not thy tonge then, go not farre fro me, O lorde. Psalms 35:23 Awake lorde, and stande vp: auenge thou my cause, my God, and my lorde, Psalms 35:24 Iudge me, O lorde my God, accordynge to thy righteousnesse, that they triumphe not ouer me. Psalms 35:25 O let them not saye in their hertes: there there, so wolde we haue it: O let them not saye: we haue ouercome hym. Psalms 35:26 Let them be put to confusion & shame, that reioyse at my trouble: let them be clothed wt rebuke and dishonoure, that boost them selfes agaynst me. Psalms 35:27 Let them also be glad and reioyse, that fauoure my righteous dealynge: yea, let them saye alwaye: blessed be the lord, whiche hath pleasure in the prosperitie of hys seruaunt. Psalms 35:28 And as for my tonge, it shalbe talkyng of thy righteousnes and of thy prayse, all þe day longe.
