Chapter 108

1

 Unto the end, a psalm for David. 

2

 O God, be not thou silent in thy praise: for the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful man is opened against me. 

3

 They have spoken against with deceitful tongues; and they have compassed me about with words of hatred; and have fought against me without cause. 

4

 Instead of making me a return of love, they detracted me: but I gave myself to prayer. 

5

 And they repaid me evil for good: and hatred for my love. 

6

 Set thou the sinner over him: and may the devil stand at his right hand. 

7

 When he is judged, may he go out condemned; and may his prayer be turned to sin. 

8

 May his days be few: and his bishopric let another take. 

9

 May his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow. 

10

 Let his children be carried about vagabonds, and beg; and let them be cast out of their dwellings. 

11

 May the userer search all his substance: and let strangers plunder his labours. 

12

 May there be none to help him: nor none to pity his fatherless offspring. 

13

 May his posterity be cut off; in one generation may his name be blotted out. 

14

 May the iniquity of his fathers be remembered in the sight of the Lord: and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out. 

15

 May they be before the lord continually, and let the memory of them perish from the earth: 

16

 because he remembered not to show mercy, 

17

 But persecuted the poor man and the beggar; and the broken in heart, to put him to death. 

18

 And he loved cursing, and it shall come unto him: and he would not have blessing, and it shall be far from him. And he put on cursing, like a garment: and it went in like water into his entrails, and like oil in his bones. 

19

 May it be unto him like a garment which covereth him; and like a girdle with which he is girded continually. 

20

 This is the work of them who detract me before the Lord; and who speak evils against my soul. 

21

 But thou, O Lord, do with for thy names sake: because thy mercy is sweet. Do thou deliver me. 

22

 for I am poor and needy, and my heart is troubled within me. 

23

 I am taken away like the shadow when it declineth: and I am shaken off as locusts. 

24

 My knees are weakened through fasting: and my flesh is changed for oil. 

25

 And I am become a reproach to them: they saw me and they shaked their heads, 

26

 Help me, O Lord my God; save me according to thy mercy. 

27

 And let them know that this is thy hand: and that thou, O Lord, hast done it. 

28

 They will curse and thou will bless: let them that rise up against me be confounded: but thy servant shall rejoice. 

29

 Let them that detract me be clothed with shame: and let them be covered with the their confusion as with a double cloak. 

30

 I will give great thanks to the Lord with my mouth: and in the midst of many I will praise him. 

31

 Because he hath stood at the right hand of the poor, to save my soul from persecutors
