Do giveheed to me, O LORD, And listen to awhat my opponents are saying!
201Should good be repaid with evil? For they have 2dug a pit for bme. Remember how I 3stoodbefore You To speakgood on their behalf, So as to turnaway Your wrath from them.
21Therefore, 4give their children over to famine And deliver them up to the cpower of the sword; And let their wivesbecome5childless and 6widowed. Let their men also be smitten to death, Their 7youngmenstruckdown by the sword in battle.
May an 8outcry be heard from their houses, When You suddenlybringraiders upon them; 9For they have dug a pit to capture me And 10hiddensnares for my feet.
Yet You, O LORD, knowAll their ddeadlydesignsagainst me; 11Do not eforgive their iniquity Or blot out their sin from Your sight. But may they be f12overthrownbefore You; Deal with them in the 13time of Your anger!
