35:11 -- False witnesses did rise up; they laid to my charge things that I knew not.
35:12 -- They rewarded me evil for good to the spoiling of my soul.
35:13 -- But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth: I humbled my soul with fasting; and my prayer returned into mine own bosom.
35:14 -- I behaved myself as though he had been my friend or brother: I bowed down heavily, as one that mourneth for his mother.
35:15 -- But in mine adversity they rejoiced, and gathered themselves together: yea, the abjects gathered themselves together against me, and I knew it not; they did tear me, and ceased not:
35:16 -- With hypocritical mockers in feasts, they gnashed upon me with their teeth.
35:17 -- Lord, how long wilt thou look on? rescue my soul from their destructions, my darling from the lions.
35:18 -- I will give thee thanks in the great congregation: I will praise thee among much people.
35:19 -- Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me: neither let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause.
35:20 -- For they speak not peace: but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land.
35:21 -- Yea, they opened their mouth wide against me, and said, Aha, aha, our eye hath seen it.
35:22 -- This thou hast seen, O LORD: keep not silence: O Lord, be not far from me.
35:23 -- Stir up thyself, and awake to my judgment, even unto my cause, my God and my Lord.
35:24 -- Judge me, O LORD my God, according to thy righteousness; and let them not rejoice over me.
35:25 -- Let them not say in their hearts, Ah, so would we have it: let them not say, We have swallowed him up.
35:26 -- Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that rejoice at mine hurt: let them be clothed with shame and dishonor that magnify themselves against me.
35:27 -- Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favor my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
35:28 -- And my tongue shall speak of thy righteousness and of thy praise all the day long.


Ephesians 120: 1-7

120:1 -- A Song of degrees. In my distress I cried unto the LORD, and he heard me.
120:2 -- Deliver my soul, O LORD, from lying lips, and from a deceitful tongue.
120:3 -- What shall be given unto thee? or what shall be done unto thee, thou false tongue?
120:4 -- Sharp arrows of the mighty, with coals of juniper.
120:5 -- Woe is me, that I sojourn in Mesech, that I dwell in the tents of Kedar!
120:6 -- My soul hath long dwelt with him that hateth peace.
120:7 -- I am for peace: but when I speak, they are for war.
