against my pursuers!

who seek after my life!
Let them be turned back and disappointed
who devise evil against me!

with the angel of the LORD driving them away!

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 35:6 - Let their way be dark and slippery,
with the angel of the LORD pursuing them!

as one who laments his mother,
I bowed down in mourning.

they gnash at me with their teeth.

Rescue me from their destruction,
my precious life from the lions!

in the mighty throng I will praise you.

who are wrongfully my foes,
and let not those wink the eye
who hate me without cause.

but against those who are quiet in the land
they devise words of deceit.

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 35:21 - They open wide their mouths against me;
they say, “Aha, Aha!
Our eyes have seen it!”

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 35:22 - You have seen, O LORD; be not silent!
O Lord, be not far from me!

Unchecked Copy BoxPsa 35:23 - Awake and rouse yourself for my vindication,
for my cause, my God and my Lord!

according to your righteousness,
and let them not rejoice over me!

who rejoice at my calamity!
Let them be clothed with shame and dishonor
who magnify themselves against me!

shout for joy and be glad
and say evermore,
“Great is the LORD,
who delights in the welfare of his servant!”

and of your praise all the day long.
ESV Footnotes
Or and close the way
The word pit is transposed from the preceding line; Hebrew For without cause they hid the pit of their net for me; without cause they dug for my life
Or Violent
Hebrew it is bereavement to my soul
Or my prayer shall turn back
The meaning of the Hebrew phrase is uncertain
