You have seen the wrong done to me, O Lord; judge my cause.
You have seen all their malice, all their plots against me.
You have heard their taunts, O Lord, all their plots against me.
The whispers and murmurs of my assailants are against me all day long.
Whether they sit or rise—see, I am the object of their taunt-songs.
Pay them back for their deeds, O Lord, according to the work of their hands!
Give them anguish of heart; your curse be on them!
Pursue them in anger and destroy them from under the Lord's heavens.
