Psalm 35

1  Contend, O Lord, with those that contend with me; 
   fight against those that fight against me.
2  Take up shield and buckler 
   and rise up to help me.
3  Draw the spear and bar the way
      against those who pursue me; 
   say to my soul, ‘I am your salvation.’
4  Let those who seek after my life be shamed and disgraced; 
   let those who plot my ruin fall back and be put to confusion.
5  Let them be as chaff before the wind, 
   with the angel of the Lord thrusting them down.
6  Let their way be dark and slippery, 
   with the angel of the Lord pursuing them.
7  For they have secretly spread a net for me without a cause; 
   without any cause they have dug a pit for my soul.
8  Let ruin come upon them unawares; 
   let them be caught in the net they laid;
      let them fall in it to their destruction.
9  Then will my soul be joyful in the Lord 
   and glory in his salvation.
10  My very bones will say, ‘Lord, who is like you? 
   You deliver the poor from those that are too strong for them,
      the poor and needy from those who would despoil them.’
