1010For I hear many whispering. 11Terror is on every side! "Denounce him! 12Let us denounce him!" say all my 13close friends, 14watching for 15my fall. "Perhaps he will be deceived; then 16we can overcome him and take our revenge on him."
But 17the LORD is with me as a dread warrior; therefore my persecutors will stumble; 18they will not overcome me. 19They will be greatly shamed, for they will not succeed. Their 20eternal dishonor will never be forgotten.
