Psalm 35:1-11 (New International Version)

View In My Bible

Of David.

1 Contend,1 O LORD, with those who contend with me; fight2 against those who fight against me. 2 Take up shield3 and buckler; arise4 and come to my aid.5 3 Brandish spear6 and javelina7 against those who pursue me. Say to my soul, "I am your salvation.8" 4 May those who seek my life9 be disgraced10 and put to shame;11 may those who plot my ruin be turned back12 in dismay. 5 May they be like chaff13 before the wind, with the angel of the LORD 14 driving them away; 6 may their path be dark and slippery, with the angel of the LORD pursuing them. 7 Since they hid their net15 for me without cause16 and without cause dug a pit17 for me, 8 may ruin overtake them by surprise--18 may the net they hid entangle them, may they fall into the pit,19 to their ruin. 9 Then my soul will rejoice20 in the LORD and delight in his salvation.21 10 My whole being will exclaim, "Who is like you,22 O LORD? You rescue the poor from those too strong23 for them, the poor and needy24 from those who rob them." 11 Ruthless witnesses25 come forward; they question me on things I know nothing about.
