Psalm 109

NCV 1 God, I praise you. Do not be silent. NIV 1 My God, whom I praise, do not remain silent, NCV 2 Wicked people and liars have spoken against me; they have told lies about me. NIV 2 for people who are wicked and deceitful have opened their mouths against me; they have spoken against me with lying tongues. NCV 3 They have said hateful things about me and attack me for no reason. NIV 3 With words of hatred they surround me; they attack me without cause. NCV 4 They attacked me, even though I loved them and prayed for them. NIV 4 In return for my friendship they accuse me, but I am a man of prayer. NCV 5 I was good to them, but they repay me with evil. I loved them, but they hate me in return. NIV 5 They repay me evil for good, and hatred for my friendship. NCV 6 They say about me, "Have an evil person work against him, and let an accuser stand against him. NIV 6 Appoint someone evil to oppose my enemy; let an accuser stand at his right hand. NCV 7 When he is judged, let him be found guilty, and let even his prayers show his guilt. NIV 7 When he is tried, let him be found guilty, and may his prayers condemn him. NCV 8 Let his life be cut short, and let another man replace him as leader. NIV 8 May his days be few; may another take his place of leadership. NCV 9 Let his children become orphans and his wife a widow. NIV 9 May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow. NCV 10 Make his children wander around, begging for food. Let them be forced out of the ruins in which they live. NIV 10 May his children be wandering beggars; may they be driven from their ruined homes. NCV 11 Let the people to whom he owes money take everything he owns, and let strangers steal everything he has worked for. NIV 11 May a creditor seize all he has; may strangers plunder the fruits of his labor. NCV 12 Let no one show him love or have mercy on his orphaned children. NIV 12 May no one extend kindness to him or take pity on his fatherless children. NCV 13 Let all his descendants die and be forgotten by those who live after him. NIV 13 May his descendants be cut off, their names blotted out from the next generation. NCV 14 Lord, remember how wicked his ancestors were, and don't let the sins of his mother be wiped out. NIV 14 May the iniquity of his fathers be remembered before the LORD; may the sin of his mother never be blotted out. NCV 15 Lord, always remember their sins. Then make people forget about them completely. NIV 15 May their sins always remain before the LORD, that he may blot out their name from the earth. NCV 16 "He did not remember to be loving. He hurt the poor, the needy, and those who were sad until they were nearly dead. NIV 16 For he never thought of doing a kindness, but hounded to death the poor and the needy and the brokenhearted. NCV 17 He loved to put curses on others, so let those same curses fall on him. He did not like to bless others, so do not let good things happen to him. NIV 17 He loved to pronounce a curse— may it come back on him. He found no pleasure in blessing— may it be far from him. NCV 18 He cursed others as often as he wore clothes. Cursing others filled his body and his life, like drinking water and using olive oil. NIV 18 He wore cursing as his garment; it entered into his body like water, into his bones like oil. NCV 19 So let curses cover him like clothes and wrap around him like a belt." NIV 19 May it be like a cloak wrapped about him, like a belt tied forever around him. NCV 20 May the Lord do these things to those who accuse me, to those who speak evil against me. NIV 20 May this be the LORD’s payment to my accusers, to those who speak evil of me. NCV 21 But you, Lord God, be kind to me so others will know you are good. Because your love is good, save me. NIV 21 But you, Sovereign LORD, help me for your name’s sake; out of the goodness of your love, deliver me. NCV 22 I am poor and helpless and very sad. NIV 22 For I am poor and needy, and my heart is wounded within me. NCV 23 I am dying like an evening shadow; I am shaken off like a locust. NIV 23 I fade away like an evening shadow; I am shaken off like a locust. NCV 24 My knees are weak from hunger, and I have grown thin. NIV 24 My knees give way from fasting; my body is thin and gaunt. NCV 25 My enemies insult me; they look at me and shake their heads. NIV 25 I am an object of scorn to my accusers; when they see me, they shake their heads. NCV 26 Lord my God, help me; because you are loving, save me. NIV 26 Help me, LORD my God; save me according to your unfailing love. NCV 27 Then they will know that your power has done this; they will know that you have done it, Lord. NIV 27 Let them know that it is your hand, that you, LORD, have done it. NCV 28 They may curse me, but you bless me. They may attack me, but they will be disgraced. Then I, your servant, will be glad. NIV 28 While they curse, may you bless; may those who attack me be put to shame, but may your servant rejoice. NCV 29 Let those who accuse me be disgraced and covered with shame like a coat. NIV 29 May my accusers be clothed with disgrace and wrapped in shame as in a cloak. NCV 30 I will thank the Lord very much; I will praise him in front of many people. NIV 30 With my mouth I will greatly extol the LORD; in the great throng of worshipers I will praise him. NCV 31 He defends the helpless and saves them from those who accuse them. A psalm of David. NIV 31 For he stands at the right hand of the needy, to save their lives from those who would condemn them.
