Discover Psalm 35 Commentary in detail, with their Bible study and explained, as well as their meaning in the Catholic Bible among others.
Fight, O Lord, with those who fight against me,
fight against those who fight me.
Take hold of shield and buckler,
and stand up to my aid.
And draw the spear, block the way to my pursuers;
say to my soul: I am your salvation.
Let those who seek my life be ashamed and confused;
Let those who try my evil be turned back and put to shame.
Let them be like chaff before the wind,
and the angel of the Lord haunts them.
Let their way be dark and slippery,
and the angel of the Lord pursue them,
For without cause they hid their net for me in a pit,
without cause they dug a pit for my soul.
Ruin come upon him without his knowing it,
and the net that he hid will catch him, let him
fall into it with ruin.
And my soul shall rejoice in the Lord;
He will rejoice in his salvation.
All my bones will say: Jehovah, who is like you,
who delivers the poor from the stronger than he,
yea, the poor and needy from the one who plunges him?
False witnesses arise;
they ask me about what I don’t know.
They repay me evil for good,
to afflict my soul.
But I, when they were sick, I put on sackcloth;
I afflicted my soul with fasting,
and my prayer returned to my chest.
As for my friend or as for my brother I walked
as one who mourns for his mother, I walked with my head down.
But they were glad at my stumbling and were gathered together;
despicable people gathered against me, and I did not know it;
they tore me incessantly;
Like profane scoffers at a feast,
they gnashed their teeth at me.
Oh Lord, how long will you see this?
Rescue my soul from its destruction, my life from the lions.
In the great congregation I will give you thanks;
I will praise you among many people.
Let not those who are my enemies unjustly rejoice,
nor let those who hate me without cause wink,
Because they do not speak peace,
and plot deceptions against the meek of the earth.
And they widened their mouths against me;
They said: Aha, aha, our eyes have seen it!
You have seen it, O Lord; don’t shut up;
oh Lord, don’t be far from me.
Move and wake up to do me justice,
for my cause, my God and my Lord.
Judge me according to your righteousness, O Lord my God,
and do not rejoice over me.
Don’t say in your heart: Aha, we already have it!
Do not say: We have devoured him!
Let them be ashamed and confounded who rejoice at my evil;
They clothe with shame and shame those who magnify themselves against me.
Let those who are for my just cause sing and be glad,
and say always: Let the LORD be exalted,
who delights in the peace of his servant.
And my tongue will speak of your righteousness
and your praise all day long.
