Psalm 108

1  My heart is ready, O God, my heart is ready; ♦︎
   I will sing and give you praise.
2  Awake, my soul; awake, harp and lyre, ♦︎
   that I may awaken the dawn.
3  I will give you thanks, O Lord, among the peoples; ♦︎
   I will sing praise to you among the nations.
4  For your loving-kindness is as high as the heavens ♦︎
   and your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
5  Be exalted, O God, above the heavens ♦︎
   and your glory over all the earth.
6  That your beloved may be delivered, ♦︎
   save us by your right hand and answer me.
7  God has spoken in his holiness: ♦︎
   ‘I will triumph and divide Shechem
      and share out the valley of Succoth.
8  ‘Gilead is mine and Manasseh is mine; ♦︎
   Ephraim is my helmet and Judah my sceptre.
9  ‘Moab shall be my washpot,
      over Edom will I cast my sandal, ♦︎
   across Philistia will I shout in triumph.’
10  Who will lead me into the strong city? ♦︎
   Who will bring me into Edom?
11  Have you not cast us off, O God? ♦︎
   Will you no longer go forth with our troops?
12  O grant us your help against the enemy, ♦︎
   for earthly help is in vain.
13  Through God will we do great acts, ♦︎
   for it is he that shall tread down our enemies.

Psalm 109

1  Keep silent no longer, O God of my praise, ♦︎
   for the mouth of wickedness and treachery
      is opened against me.
2  They have spoken against me with a lying tongue; ♦︎
   they encompassed me with words of hatred
      and fought against me without a cause.
3  In return for my love, they set themselves against me, ♦︎
   even though I had prayed for them.
4  Thus have they repaid me with evil for good, ♦︎
   and hatred for my good will.
5  They say, ‘Appoint a wicked man over him, ♦︎
   and let an accuser stand at his right hand.
6  ‘When he is judged, let him be found guilty, ♦︎
   and let his prayer be counted as sin.
7  ‘Let his days be few ♦︎
   and let another take his office.
8  ‘Let his children be fatherless ♦︎
   and his wife become a widow.
9  ‘Let his children wander to beg their bread; ♦︎
   let them seek it in desolate places.
10  ‘Let the creditor seize all that he has; ♦︎
   let strangers plunder the fruit of his toil.
11  ‘Let there be no one to keep faith with him, ♦︎
   or have compassion on his fatherless children.
12  ‘Let his line soon come to an end ♦︎
   and his name be blotted out in the next generation.
13  ‘Let the wickedness of his fathers
      be remembered before the Lord, ♦︎
   and no sin of his mother be blotted out;
14  ‘Let their sin be always before the Lord, ♦︎
   that he may root out their name from the earth;
15  ‘Because he was not minded to keep faith, ♦︎
   but persecuted the poor and needy
      and sought to kill the brokenhearted.
16  ‘He loved cursing and it came to him; ♦︎
   he took no delight in blessing and it was far from him.
17  ‘He clothed himself with cursing as with a garment: ♦︎
   it seeped into his body like water
      and into his bones like oil;
18  ‘Let it be to him like the cloak
      which he wraps around him ♦︎
   and like the belt that he wears continually.’
19  Thus may the Lord repay my accusers ♦︎
   and those who speak evil against me.
20  But deal with me, O Lord my God, according to your name; ♦︎
   O deliver me, for sweet is your faithfulness.
21  For I am helpless and poor ♦︎
   and my heart is disquieted within me.
22  I fade like a shadow that lengthens; ♦︎
   I am shaken off like a locust.
23  My knees are weak through fasting ♦︎
   and my flesh is dried up and wasted.
24  I have become a reproach to them; ♦︎
   those who see me shake their heads in scorn.
25  Help me, O Lord my God; ♦︎
   save me for your loving mercy’s sake,
26  And they shall know that this is your hand, ♦︎
   that you, O Lord, have done it.
27  Though they curse, may you bless; ♦︎
   let those who rise up against me be confounded,
      but let your servant rejoice.
28  Let my accusers be clothed with disgrace ♦︎
   and wrap themselves in their shame as in a cloak.
29  I will give great thanks to the Lord with my mouth; ♦︎
   in the midst of the multitude will I praise him;
30  Because he has stood at the right hand of the needy, ♦︎
   to save them from those who would condemn them.
