Should good be repaid with evil?1 Yet they have dug a pit2 for me. Remember that I stood3 before you and spoke in their behalf4 to turn your wrath away from them.
So give their children over to famine;5 hand them over to the power of the sword.6 Let their wives be made childless and widows;7 let their men be put to death, their young men8 slain by the sword in battle.
Let a cry9 be heard from their houses when you suddenly bring invaders against them, for they have dug a pit10 to capture me and have hidden snares11 for my feet.
But you know, O LORD, all their plots to kill12 me. Do not forgive13 their crimes or blot out their sins from your sight. Let them be overthrown before you; deal with them in the time of your anger.14
