1Plead my cause, O LORD, with them that strive with me: fight against them that fight against me.
Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.3
Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that persecute me: say unto my soul, I am thy salvation.4
Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul: let them be turnedback and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.5
Let them be as chaffbefore the wind: and let the angel of the LORDchase them.
Let their way be darka and slippery: and let the angel of the LORDpersecute them.
