(A psalm by David.) A Prayer for Protection from Enemies 35 1Fight my enemies, LORD! Attack my attackers! 2Shield me and help me. 3Aim your spear at everyone who hunts me down, but promise to save me.   4Let all who want to kill me be disgraced and put to shame. Chase away and confuse all who plan to harm me. 5Send your angel after them and let them be like straw in the wind. 6Make them run in the dark on a slippery road, as your angel chases them. 7I did them no harm, but they hid a net to trap me, and they dug a deep pit to catch and kill me. 8 Surprise them with disaster! Trap them in their own nets and let them fall and rot in the pits they have dug.   9I will celebrate and be joyful because you, LORD, have saved me. 10Every bone in my body will shout: “No one is like the LORD!” You protect the helpless from those in power; you save the poor and needy from those who hurt them.   11Liars accuse me of crimes I know nothing about. 12They repay evil for good, and I feel all alone. 13When they were sick, I wore sackcloth[P] and went without food.[Q] I truly prayed for them,[R] 14as I would for a friend or a relative. I was in sorrow and mourned, as I would for my mother.   15I have stumbled, and worthless liars I don't even know surround me and sneer. 16Worthless people make fun[S] and never stop laughing. 17But all you do is watch! When will you do something? Save me from the attack of those vicious lions. 18And when your people meet, I will praise you and thank you, Lord, in front of them all.   19 Don't let my brutal enemies be glad because of me. They hate me for no reason. Don't let them wink behind my back. 20They say hurtful things, and they lie to people who want to live in peace. 21They are quick to accuse me. They say, “You did it! We saw you ourselves.”   22You see everything, LORD! Please don't keep silent or stay so far away. 23Fight to defend me, Lord God, 24and prove that I am right by your standards. Don't let them laugh at me 25or say to each other, “Now we've got what we want! We'll gobble him up!”   26Disappoint and confuse all who are glad to see me in trouble; disgrace and embarrass my proud enemies who say to me, “You are nothing!”   27Let all who want me to win be happy and joyful. From now on let them say, “The LORD is wonderful! God is glad when all goes well for his servant.” 28Then I will shout all day, “Praise the LORD God! He did what was right.”
