I am an object of scorn to my accusers; when they see me, they wag their heads.
Help me, O LORD my God! Save me according to thy steadfast love!
Let them know that this is thy hand; thou, O LORD, hast done it!
Let them curse, but do thou bless! Let my assailants be put to shame; may thy servant be glad!
May my accusers be clothed with dishonor; may they be wrapped in their own shame as in a mantle!
With my mouth I will give great thanks to the LORD; I will praise him in the midst of the throng.
For he stands at the right hand of the needy, to save him from those who condemn him to death.
