The LORD judges the peoples; judge me, O LORD, according to my righteousness and according to the integrity that is in me.
O let the evil of the wicked come to an end, but establish thou the righteous, thou who triest the minds and hearts, thou righteous God.
My shield is with God, who saves the upright in heart.
God is a righteous judge, and a God who has indignation every day.

he has prepared his deadly weapons, making his arrows fiery shafts.
Behold, the wicked man conceives evil, and is pregnant with mischief, and brings forth lies.

Contend, O LORD, with those who contend with me; fight against those who fight against me!
Take hold of shield and buckler, and rise for my help!
Draw the spear and javelin against my pursuers! Say to my soul, "I am your deliverance!"
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!
Let them be like chaff before the wind, with the angel of the LORD driving them on!
Let their way be dark and slippery, with the angel of the LORD pursuing them!
For without cause they hid their net for me; without cause they dug a pit for my life.

Make their nobles like Oreb and Zeeb, all their princes like Zebah and Zalmun'na,
who said, "Let us take possession for ourselves of the pastures of God."
O my God, make them like whirling dust, like chaff before the wind.
As fire consumes the forest, as the flame sets the mountains ablaze,
so do thou pursue them with thy tempest and terrify them with thy hurricane!
Fill their faces with shame, that they may seek thy name, O LORD.

When he is tried, let him come forth guilty; let his prayer be counted as sin!
May his days be few; may another seize his goods!
May his children be fatherless, and his wife a widow!
May his children wander about and beg; may they be driven out of the ruins they inhabit!
May the creditor seize all that he has; may strangers plunder the fruits of his toil!
Let there be none to extend kindness to him, nor any to pity his fatherless children!
May his posterity be cut off; may his name be blotted out in the second generation!
May the iniquity of his fathers be remembered before the LORD, and let not the sin of his mother be blotted out!
Let them be before the LORD continually; and may his memory be cut off from the earth!
For he did not remember to show kindness, but pursued the poor and needy and the brokenhearted to their death.
He loved to curse; let curses come on him! He did not like blessing; may it be far from him!
He clothed himself with cursing as his coat, may it soak into his body like water, like oil into his bones!
May it be like a garment which he wraps round him, like a belt with which he daily girds himself!
