PS 34:1  For David himself. Judge thou, O Lord, them that wrong me : overthrow them that fight against me.

PS 34:2  Take hold of arms and shield : and rise up to help me.

PS 34:3  Bring out the sword, and shut up the way against them that persecute me : say to my soul : I am thy salvation.

PS 34:4  Let them be confounded and ashamed that seek after my soul. Let them be turned back and be confounded that devise against me.

PS 34:5  Let them become as dust before the wind : and let the angel of the Lord straiten them.

PS 34:6  Let their way become dark and slippery; and let the angel of the Lord pursue them.

PS 34:7  For without cause they have hidden their net for me unto destruction : without cause they have upbraided my soul.

PS 34:8  Let the snare which he knoweth not come upon him : and let the net which he hath hidden catch him : and let the net which he hath hidden catch him : and into that very snare let them fall.

PS 34:9  But my soul shall rejoice in the Lord; and shall be delighted in his salvation.

PS 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.

PS 34:11  Unjust witnesses rising up have asked me things I knew not.

PS 34:12  They repaid me evil for good : to the depriving me of my soul.

PS 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.

PS 34:14  As a neighbour and as an own brother, so did I please : as one mourning and sorrowful so was I humbled.

PS 34:15  But they rejoiced against me, and came together : scourges were gathered together upon me, and I knew not.

PS 34:16  They were separated, and repented not : they tempted me, they scoffed at me with scorn : they gnashed upon me with their teeth.

PS 34:17  Lord, when wilt thou look upon me? rescue thou soul from their malice : my only one from the lions.

PS 34:18  I will give thanks to thee in a great church; I will praise thee in a strong people.

PS 34:19  Let not them that are my enemies wrongfully rejoice over me : who have hated me without cause, and wink with the eyes.

PS 34:20  For they spoke indeed peaceably to me; and speaking in the anger of the earth they devised guile.

PS 34:21  And they opened their mouth wide against me; they said : Well done, well done, our eyes have seen it.

PS 34:22  Thou hast seen, O Lord, be not thou silent : O Lord, depart not from me.

PS 34:23  Arise, and be attentive to my judgment : to my cause, my God, and my Lord.

PS 34:24  Judge me, O Lord my God according to thy justice, and let them not rejoice over me.

PS 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.

PS 34:26  Let them blush : and be ashamed together, who rejoice at my evils. Let them be clothed with confusion and shame, who speak great things against me.

PS 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.

PS 34:28  Any my tongue shall meditate thy justice, thy praise all the day long.
