To make them sit with princes, With the princes of His people.

2308

Therefore He swore to them That He would cast them down in the wilderness,

2309

Let this be the reward of my accusers from the LORD, And of those who speak evil against my soul.

2310

He spoke, and there came a swarm of flies And gnats in all their territory.

2311

Their land swarmed with frogs Even in the chambers of their kings.

2312

The earth opened and swallowed up Dathan, And engulfed the company of Abiram.

2313

And He caused His people to be very fruitful, And made them stronger than their adversaries.

2314

Fire devoured His young men, And His virgins had no wedding songs.

2315

For my enemies have spoken against me; And those who watch for my life have consulted together,

2316

For they have persecuted him whom You Yourself have smitten, And they tell of the pain of those whom You have wounded.

2317

Oh draw near to my soul and redeem it; Ransom me because of my enemies!

2318

You will prolong the king's life; His years will be as many generations.

2319

Judge me, O LORD my God, according to Your righteousness, And do not let them rejoice over me.

2320

Have not You Yourself, O God, rejected us? And will You not go forth with our armies, O God?

2321

For the sake of the house of the LORD our God, I will seek your good.

2322

Let my soul live that it may praise You, And let Your ordinances help me.

2323

You have commanded Your testimonies in righteousness And exceeding faithfulness.

2324

I long for Your salvation, O LORD, And Your law is my delight.

2325

Uphold me that I may be safe, That I may have regard for Your statutes continually.

2326

O LORD, I remember Your name in the night, And keep Your law.

2327

Because he did not remember to show lovingkindness, But persecuted the afflicted and needy man, And the despondent in heart, to put them to death.

2328

I am Yours, save me; For I have sought Your precepts.

2329

He gave them hail for rain, And flaming fire in their land.

2330

Let his posterity be cut off; In a following generation let their name be blotted out.

2331

In the courts of the LORD'S house, In the midst of you, O Jerusalem. Praise the LORD!

2332

Let the creditor seize all that he has, And let strangers plunder the product of his labor.

2333

Have not You Yourself, O God, rejected us? And will You not go forth with our armies, O God?

2334

Who will bring me into the besieged city? Who will lead me to Edom?

2336

When the peoples are gathered together, And the kingdoms, to serve the LORD.

2337

Why do You withdraw Your hand, even Your right hand? From within Your bosom, destroy them!

2338

And a fire blazed up in their company; The flame consumed the wicked.

2339

Oh let those who fear the LORD say, "His lovingkindness is everlasting."

2340

You make us an object of contention to our neighbors, And our enemies laugh among themselves.

2341

Your adversaries have roared in the midst of Your meeting place; They have set up their own standards for signs.

2342

My tongue also will utter Your righteousness all day long; For they are ashamed, for they are humiliated who seek my hurt.

2343

To bind their kings with chains And their nobles with fetters of iron,

2344

Let the wicked fall into their own nets, While I pass by safely.

2345

Both young men and virgins; Old men and children.

2346

Sihon, king of the Amorites, And Og, king of Bashan, And all the kingdoms of Canaan;

2347

You who stand in the house of the LORD, In the courts of the house of our God!

2348

"Many times they have persecuted me from my youth up; Yet they have not prevailed against me.

2349

Our soul is greatly filled With the scoffing of those who are at ease, And with the contempt of the proud.

2350

Nevertheless He looked upon their distress When He heard their cry;

2351

I shall pay my vows to the LORD, Oh may it be in the presence of all His people,

2352

Many are my persecutors and my adversaries, Yet I do not turn aside from Your testimonies.

2353

Wonders in the land of Ham And awesome things by the Red Sea.

2354

And they wandered about from nation to nation, From one kingdom to another people.

2355

For I have eaten ashes like bread And mingled my drink with weeping

2356

He gave over their cattle also to the hailstones And their herds to bolts of lightning.

2357

Then he passed away, and lo, he was no more; I sought for him, but he could not be found.

2358

O God, do not be far from me; O my God, hasten to my help!

2359

They return at evening, they howl like a dog, And go around the city.

2360

He sent darkness and made it dark; And they did not rebel against His words.

2361

Mountains and all hills; Fruit trees and all cedars;

2362

You have broken down all his walls; You have brought his strongholds to ruin.

2363

My soul keeps Your testimonies, And I love them exceedingly.

2364

This has become mine, That I observe Your precepts.

2365

In whose hands is a wicked scheme, And whose right hand is full of bribes.

2366

"But I shall crush his adversaries before him, And strike those who hate him.

2367

So He brought their days to an end in futility And their years in sudden terror.

2368

Beasts and all cattle; Creeping things and winged fowl;

2369

Hear my voice according to Your lovingkindness; Revive me, O LORD, according to Your ordinances.

2370

They surrounded me, yes, they surrounded me; In the name of the LORD I will surely cut them off.

2371

Saying, "God has forsaken him; Pursue and seize him, for there is no one to deliver."

2372

Sihon, king of the Amorites, For His lovingkindness is everlasting,

2373

The wicked have laid a snare for me, Yet I have not gone astray from Your precepts.

2374

Then the waters would have engulfed us, The stream would have swept over our soul;

2375

He sent signs and wonders into your midst, O Egypt, Upon Pharaoh and all his servants.

2376

That I may see the prosperity of Your chosen ones, That I may rejoice in the gladness of Your nation, That I may glory with Your inheritance.

2377

He gave them also the lands of the nations, That they might take possession of the fruit of the peoples' labor,

2378

Their sword will enter their own heart, And their bows will be broken.

2379

You have shortened the days of his youth; You have covered him with shame. Selah.

2380

Let destruction come upon him unawares, And let the net which he hid catch himself; Into that very destruction let him fall.

2381

Keep me from the jaws of the trap which they have set for me, And from the snares of those who do iniquity.

2382

Then they would have swallowed us alive, When their anger was kindled against us;

2383

What shall be given to you, and what more shall be done to you, You deceitful tongue?

2384

To imprison his princes at will, That he might teach his elders wisdom.

2385

My life is continually in my hand, Yet I do not forget Your law.

2386

I am passing like a shadow when it lengthens; I am shaken off like the locust.

2387

He drove His adversaries backward; He put on them an everlasting reproach.

2388

For no guilt of mine, they run and set themselves against me Arouse Yourself to help me, and see!

2389

Who gives salvation to kings, Who rescues David His servant from the evil sword.

2390

Great are Your mercies, O LORD; Revive me according to Your ordinances.

2391

They have poured out their blood like water round about Jerusalem; And there was no one to bury them.

2392

And turned their rivers to blood, And their streams, they could not drink.

2393

They have hands, but they cannot feel; They have feet, but they cannot walk; They cannot make a sound with their throat.

2394

Let them curse, but You bless; When they arise, they shall be ashamed, But Your servant shall be glad.

2395

So they ate and were well filled, And their desire He gave to them.

2396

He also made them objects of compassion In the presence of all their captors.

2397

How many are the days of Your servant? When will You execute judgment on those who persecute me?

2398

And sow fields and plant vineyards, And gather a fruitful harvest.

2399

He has made known to His people the power of His works, In giving them the heritage of the nations.

2400

And that He would cast their seed among the nations And scatter them in the lands.

2401

They have surrounded me like water all day long; They have encompassed me altogether.

2402

Egypt was glad when they departed, For the dread of them had fallen upon them.

2403

Before they had satisfied their desire, While their food was in their mouths,

2404

O house of Aaron, trust in the LORD; He is their help and their shield.

2405

You have seen it, O LORD, do not keep silent; O Lord, do not be far from me.

2406

Let it be to him as a garment with which he covers himself, And for a belt with which he constantly girds himself.

2407

Their enemies also oppressed them, And they were subdued under their power.

2408

I shall offer to You burnt offerings of fat beasts, With the smoke of rams; I shall make an offering of bulls with male goats. Selah.

2409

We have become a reproach to our neighbors, A scoffing and derision to those around us.

2410

His priests fell by the sword, And His widows could not weep.

2411

They saw it, then they were amazed; They were terrified, they fled in alarm.

2412

The LORD will not leave him in his hand Or let him be condemned when he is judged.

2413

And He gave their land as a heritage, A heritage to Israel His people.

2414

"His enemies I will clothe with shame, But upon himself his crown shall shine."

2415

Then He gave them into the hand of the nations, And those who hated them ruled over them.

2416

Oh let the house of Aaron say, "His lovingkindness is everlasting."

2417

The waters covered their adversaries; Not one of them was left.

2418

He turned their waters into blood And caused their fish to die.

2419

The wicked wait for me to destroy me; I shall diligently consider Your testimonies.

2420

O house of Israel, bless the LORD; O house of Aaron, bless the LORD;

2421

Therefore He humbled their heart with labor; They stumbled and there was none to help.

2422

To shoot from concealment at the blameless; Suddenly they shoot at him, and do not fear.

2423

And let them know that this is Your hand; You, LORD, have done it.

2424

The king sent and released him, The ruler of peoples, and set him free.

2425

All who pass along the way plunder him; He has become a reproach to his neighbors.

2426

And Og, king of Bashan, For His lovingkindness is everlasting,

2427

To Him who led His people through the wilderness, For His lovingkindness is everlasting;

2428

It seems as if one had lifted up His axe in a forest of trees.

2429

Those who make them will be like them, Yes, everyone who trusts in them.

2430

They have mouths, but they do not speak; They have eyes, but they do not see;

2431

O house of Levi, bless the LORD; You who revere the LORD, bless the LORD.

2432

The sun to rule by day, For His lovingkindness is everlasting,

2433

He struck down their vines also and their fig trees, And shattered the trees of their territory.

2434

You have made his splendor to cease And cast his throne to the ground.

2435

They are upheld forever and ever; They are performed in truth and uprightness.

2436

And there He makes the hungry to dwell, So that they may establish an inhabited city,

2437

And has rescued us from our adversaries, For His lovingkindness is everlasting;

2438

They have ears, but they do not hear, Nor is there any breath at all in their mouths.

2439

And brought Israel out from their midst, For His lovingkindness is everlasting,

2440

Their judges are thrown down by the sides of the rock, And they hear my words, for they are pleasant.

2441

They almost destroyed me on earth, But as for me, I did not forsake Your precepts.

2442

They have seen the works of the LORD, And His wonders in the deep.

2443

And ate up all vegetation in their land, And ate up the fruit of their ground.

2444

You also turn back the edge of his sword And have not made him stand in battle.

2445

And now all its carved work They smash with hatchet and hammers.

2446

Do not let them say in their heart, "Aha, our desire!" Do not let them say, "We have swallowed him up!"

2447

O mountains, that you skip like rams? O hills, like lambs?

2448

He also delivered His people to the sword, And was filled with wrath at His inheritance.

2449

I cried to You; save me And I shall keep Your testimonies.

2450

Let them be before the LORD continually, That He may cut off their memory from the earth;

2451

Let there be none to extend lovingkindness to him, Nor any to be gracious to his fatherless children.

2452

Do not forget the voice of Your adversaries, The uproar of those who rise against You which ascends continually.

2453

You have exalted the right hand of his adversaries; You have made all his enemies rejoice.

2454

May those who fear You turn to me, Even those who know Your testimonies.

2455

Then He let them fall in the midst of their camp, Round about their dwellings.

2456

For they have devoured Jacob And laid waste his habitation.

2457

Which my lips uttered And my mouth spoke when I was in distress.

2458

Then the raging waters would have swept over our soul."

2459

Even a heritage to Israel His servant, For His lovingkindness is everlasting.

2460

And gave their land as a heritage, For His lovingkindness is everlasting,

2461

And made Israel pass through the midst of it, For His lovingkindness is everlasting;
