I have done no wrong,1 yet they are ready to attack me.2 Arise to help me; look on my plight!35
O LORD God Almighty, the God of Israel,4 rouse yourself5 to punish all the nations;6 show no mercy to wicked traitors.7 "Selah"
They return at evening, snarling like dogs,8 and prowl about the city.
See what they spew from their mouths9-- they spew out swords10 from their lips, and they say, "Who can hear us?"118
But you, O LORD, laugh at them;12 you scoff at all those nations.139
O my Strength,14 I watch for you; you, O God, are my fortress,1510
my loving God. God will go before me and will let me gloat over those who slander me.
But do not kill them, O Lord our shield,a16 or my people will forget.17 In your might make them wander about, and bring them down.1812
For the sins of their mouths,19 for the words of their lips,20 let them be caught in their pride.21 For the curses and lies they utter,
consume them in wrath, consume them till they are no more.22 Then it will be known to the ends of the earth that God rules over Jacob.23 "Selah"
They return at evening, snarling like dogs, and prowl about the city.
