Psalm 35

1Contend, O Lord, with those who contend with me; fight against those who fight against me!

2Take hold of shield and buckler, and rise up to help me!

3Draw the spear and javelin against my pursuers; say to my soul, “I am your salvation.”

4Let them be put to shame and dishonor who seek after my life. Let them be turned back and confounded who devise evil against me.

5Let them be like chaff before the wind, with the angel of the Lord driving them on.

6Let their way be dark and slippery, with the angel of the Lord pursuing them.

7For without cause they hid their net for me; without cause they dug a pit for my life.

8Let ruin come on them unawares. And let the net that they hid ensnare them; let them fall in it—to their ruin.

9Then my soul shall rejoice in the Lord, exulting in his deliverance.

10All 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.”
