Bible: Psalm 109:4-13

109:4 They repay my love with accusations, 1 

but I continue to pray. 2 

109:5 They repay me evil for good, 3 

and hate for love.

109:6 4 

Appoint an evil man to testify against him! 5 

May an accuser stand 6  at his right side!

109:7 When he is judged, he will be found 7  guilty! 8 

Then his prayer will be regarded as sinful.

109:8 May his days be few! 9 

May another take his job! 10 

109:9 May his children 11  be fatherless,

and his wife a widow!

109:10 May his children 12  roam around begging,

asking for handouts as they leave their ruined home! 13 

109:11 May the creditor seize 14  all he owns!

May strangers loot his property! 15 

109:12 May no one show him kindness! 16 

May no one have compassion 17  on his fatherless children!

109:13 May his descendants 18  be cut off! 19 

May the memory of them be wiped out by the time the next generation arrives! 20
