Psalm 35

CEB 1 LORD, argue with those who argue with me; fight with those who fight against me! NRS 1 Contend, O Lord, with those who contend with me; fight against those who fight against me! CEB 2 Grab a shield and armor; stand up and help me! NRS 2 Take hold of shield and buckler, and rise up to help me! CEB 3 Use your spear and ax against those who are out to get me! Say to me:"I'm your salvation!" NRS 3 Draw the spear and javelin against my pursuers; say to my soul, "I am your salvation." CEB 4 Let those who want me dead be humiliated and put to shame. Let those who intend to hurt me be thoroughly frustrated and disgraced. NRS 4 Let them be put to shame and dishonor who seek after my life. Let them be turned back and confounded who devise evil against me. CEB 5 Let them be like dust on the wind— and let the LORD's messenger be the one who does the blowing! NRS 5 Let them be like chaff before the wind, with the angel of the Lord driving them on. CEB 6 Let their path be dark and slippery— and let the LORD's messenger be the one who does the chasing! NRS 6 Let their way be dark and slippery, with the angel of the Lord pursuing them. CEB 7 Because they hid their net for me for no reason, they dug a pit for me for no reason. NRS 7 For without cause they hid their net for me; without cause they dug a pit for my life. CEB 8 Let disaster come to them when they don't suspect it. Let the net they hid catch them instead! Let them fall into it—to their disaster! NRS 8 Let ruin come on them unawares. And let the net that they hid ensnare them; let them fall in it—to their ruin. CEB 9 But I will rejoice in the LORD; I will celebrate his salvation. NRS 9 Then my soul shall rejoice in the Lord, exulting in his deliverance. CEB 10 All my bones will say, "LORD, who could compare to you? You rescue the weak from those who overpower them; you rescue the weak and the needy from those who plunder them." NRS 10 All my bones shall say, "O Lord, who is like you? You deliver the weak from those too strong for them, the weak and needy from those who despoil them." CEB 11 Violent witnesses stand up. They question me about things I know nothing about. NRS 11 Malicious witnesses rise up; they ask me about things I do not know. CEB 12 They pay me back evil for good, leaving me stricken with grief. NRS 12 They repay me evil for good; my soul is forlorn. CEB 13 But when they were sick, I wore clothes for grieving, and I kept a strict fast. When my prayer came back unanswered, NRS 13 But as for me, when they were sick, I wore sackcloth; I afflicted myself with fasting. I prayed with head bowed on my bosom, CEB 14 I would wander around like I was grieving a friend or a brother. I was weighed down, sad, like I was a mother in mourning. NRS 14 as though I grieved for a friend or a brother; I went about as one who laments for a mother, bowed down and in mourning. CEB 15 But when I stumbled, they celebrated and gathered together— they gathered together against me! Strangers I didn't know tore me to pieces and wouldn't quit. NRS 15 But at my stumbling they gathered in glee, they gathered together against me; ruffians whom I did not know tore at me without ceasing; CEB 16 They ridiculed me over and over again, like godless people would do, grinding their teeth at me. NRS 16 they impiously mocked more and more, gnashing at me with their teeth. CEB 17 How long, my Lord, will you watch this happen? Rescue me from their attacks; rescue my precious life from these predatory lions! NRS 17 How long, O Lord, will you look on? Rescue me from their ravages, my life from the lions! CEB 18 Then I will thank you in the great assembly; I will praise you in a huge crowd of people. NRS 18 Then I will thank you in the great congregation; in the mighty throng I will praise you. CEB 19 Don't let those who are my enemies without cause celebrate over me; don't let those who hate me for no reason wink at my demise. NRS 19 Do not let my treacherous enemies rejoice over me, or those who hate me without cause wink the eye. CEB 20 They don't speak the truth; instead, they plot false accusations against innocent people in the land. NRS 20 For they do not speak peace, but they conceive deceitful words against those who are quiet in the land. CEB 21 They speak out against me, saying, "Yes! Oh, yes! We've seen it with our own eyes!" NRS 21 They open wide their mouths against me; they say, "Aha, Aha, our eyes have seen it." CEB 22 But you've seen it too, LORD. Don't keep quiet about it. Please don't be far from me, my Lord. NRS 22 You have seen, O Lord; do not be silent! O Lord, do not be far from me! CEB 23 Wake up! Get up and do justice for me; argue my case, my Lord and my God! NRS 23 Wake up! Bestir yourself for my defense, for my cause, my God and my Lord! CEB 24 Establish justice for me according to your righteousness, LORD, my God. Don't let them celebrate over me. NRS 24 Vindicate me, O Lord, my God, according to your righteousness, and do not let them rejoice over me. CEB 25 Don't let them say to themselves, Yes! Exactly what we wanted! Don't let them say, "We ate him up!" NRS 25 Do not let them say to themselves, "Aha, we have our heart's desire." Do not let them say, "We have swallowed you up." CEB 26 Let all those who celebrate my misfortune be disgraced and put to shame! Let those who exalt themselves over me be dressed up in shame and dishonor! NRS 26 Let all those who rejoice at my calamity be put to shame and confusion; let those who exalt themselves against me be clothed with shame and dishonor. CEB 27 But let those who want things to be set right for me shout for joy and celebrate! Let them constantly say, "The LORD is great— God wants his servant to be at peace." NRS 27 Let those who desire my vindication shout for joy and be glad, and say evermore, "Great is the Lord, who delights in the welfare of his servant." CEB 28 Then my tongue will talk all about your righteousness; it will talk about your praise all day long. NRS 28 Then my tongue shall tell of your righteousness and of your praise all day long.
