You have shortened the days of his youth;
You have covered him with shame. Selah.
Let my accusers be clothed with dishonor,
And let them cover themselves with their own shame as with a robe.
All day long my dishonor is before me
And my humiliation has overwhelmed me,
So Israel has been in rebellion against the house of David to this day.
Let those who are adversaries of my soul be ashamed and consumed;
Let them be covered with reproach and dishonor, who seek to injure me.
“My lovingkindness I will keep for him forever,
And My covenant shall be confirmed to him.
He has weakened my strength in the way;
He has shortened my days.
Your holy people possessed Your sanctuary for a little while,
Our adversaries have trodden it down.
Then my enemy will see,
And shame will cover her who said to me,
“Where is the Lord your God?”
My eyes will look on her;
At that time she will be trampled down
Like mire of the streets.
