19 Let it thus happen from the Lord unto mine enemies: and to those that speak evil againft my soul.

20 But deal thou with me, O Lord God, according unto thy name: for sweet is thy mercy. | 21 o deliver me, for I am helpless and poor : and my heart is wounded within me, 22 I go hence like the shadow that departeth : andan driven away as the grashopper.

23 My knees are weak through fasting: my flesh is dri. ed up for want of fatness.

24 I became also a reproch unto them: they that looked upon me, shaked their heads.

25 Help me, O Lord my God : O fave me according to thy mercy.

26 And they shall know, how that this is thy hand: ard that thou, Lord, hast done it.

27 Though they curse, yet bless thou : and let them be confounded that rise up against me; but let thy servant rejoyce.

28 Let mine adversaries be clothed with shame : and let them cover themselves with their own confusion, as with a cloke.

29 As for me, I will give great thanks unto the Lord with my mouth : and praise him among the multitude.

30 For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor : to fave his soul from unrighteous judges.
