Psalm 35 (Douay-Rheims)

View In My Bible
1 (34-1) <For David himself.> Judge thou, O Lord, them that wrong me: overthrow them that fight against me. 2 (34-2) Take hold of arms and shield: and rise up to help me. 3 (34-3) Bring out the sword, and shut up the way against them that persecute me: say to my soul: I am thy salvation. 4 (34-4) Let them be confounded and ashamed that seek after my soul. Let them be turned back and be confounded that devise evil against me. 5 (34-5) Let them become as dust before the wind: and let the angel of the Lord straiten them. 6 (34-6) Let their way become dark and slippery; and let the angel of the Lord pursue them. 7 (34-7) For without cause they have hidden their net for me unto destruction: without cause they have upbraided my soul. 8 (34-8) Let the snare which he knoweth not come upon him: and let the net which he hath hidden catch him: and into that very snare let them fall. 9 (34-9) But my soul shall rejoice in the Lord; and shall be delighted in his salvation. 10 (34-10) All my bones shall say: Lord, who is like to thee? Who deliverest the poor from the hand of them that are stronger than he; the needy and the poor from them that strip him. 11 (34-11) Unjust witnesses rising up have asked me things I knew not. 12 (34-12) They repaid me evil for good: to the depriving me of my soul. 13 (34-13) But as for me, when they were troublesome to me, I was clothed with haircloth. I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer shall be turned into my bosom. 14 (34-14) As a neighbour and as an own brother, so did I please: as one mourning and sorrowful so was I humbled. 15 (34-15) But they rejoiced against me, and came together: scourges were gathered together upon me, and I knew not. 16 (34-16) They were separated, and repented not: they tempted me, they scoffed at me with scorn: they gnashed upon me with their teeth. 17 (34-17) Lord, when wilt thou look upon me? rescue thou my soul from their malice: my only one from the lions. 18 (34-18) I will give thanks to thee in a great church; I will praise thee in a strong people. 19 (34-19) Let not them that are my enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: who have hated me without cause, and wink with the eyes. 20 (34-20) For they spoke indeed peaceably to me; and speaking in the anger of the earth they devised guile. 21 (34-21) And they opened their mouth wide against me; they said: Well done, well done, our eyes have seen it. 22 (34-22) Thou hast seen, O Lord, be not thou silent: O Lord, depart not from me. 23 (34-23) Arise, and be attentive to my judgment: to my cause, my God, and my Lord. 24 (34-24) Judge me, O Lord my God according to thy justice, and let them not rejoice over me. 25 (34-25) Let them not say in their hearts: It is well, it is well, to our mind: neither let them say: We have swallowed him up. 26 (34-26) Let them blush: and be ashamed to gether, who rejoice at my evils. Let them be clothed with confusion and shame, who speak great things against me. 27 (34-27) Let them rejoice and be glad, who are well pleased with my justice, and let them say always: The Lord be magnified, who delights in the peace of his servant. 28 (34-28) And my tongue shall meditate thy justice, thy praise all the day long.
