Psalm 35 ©
David prayeth for safety to himself, and confusion to his enemies: he complaineth of their false witness, ingratitude, and malice against him: he moveth God to do him right, and avenge him.
A Psalm of David.
Take hold of bshield and *buckler, and stand up for mine help.
Let their way be 1dark and slippery: and let the angel of the LORD persecute them.
All mmy bones shall say, LORD, who is like unto thee, which ndeliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?
I 7behaved myself 8as though he had been my friend or brother: I bowed down heavily, as one that mourneth for his mother.
Let them not say in their hearts, 13Ah, so would we have it: let them not say, iWe have swallowed him up.
