A Psalm of David

Hymnal: The Psalms Hymns and Spiritual Songs of the Old and New Testament, faithfully translated into English Metre #PXXXV (1773) Hymnal Title: The Psalms Hymns and Spiritual Songs of the Old and New Testament, faithfully translated into English Metre First Line: LORD strive with them who with me strive Lyrics: 1 LORD strive with them who with me strive; Against them fight that fight with me: 2 Of shield and buckler take thou hold; And O arise my help to be. 3 Draw forth the spear and stop the course Of my pursuers speedily; And to my soul O do thou say, "I will a saviour be to Thee." 4 With shame shall they confounded be, Who seek my harmless soul to seize; And with disgrace be turned back, Who plot to do me injuries. 5 JEHOVAH's angel shall them chase As chaff before the driving wind: 6 Their way shall dark and slipper be, JEHOVAH's angle drive behind! 7 For causlesly within a pit They hid a net me to ensnare; A pit which they without a cause Did dig, and for my soul prepare. 8 But ruin on them unawares Shall come; and in their hidden net They shall be caught, and ruin'd by The snare their hand for me had set. 9 My soul shall in the LORD rejoice, In his salvation joyful be; 10 And all my bones with joy shall sing "JEHOVAH, who is like to Thee!" "Who sav'st the poor and weak from those "Who for him are too great and strong; "The poor and needy one from those "Who him oppress with spoil and wrong!" [2 Part] 11 False witnesses arose; and things I never knew, to me they laid: 12 To spoil my soul, ungratefully they evil for my good repaid. 13 But as for me, when they were sick I put on sackcloth and I mourn'd; My soul with fasting griev'd; my pray'r Within my bosom oft return'd. 14 As for my friend and brother dear; So tenderly behave did I; As for a dying mother wept, And I bow'd downward heavily. 15 Yet they in my distress rejoice, And they against me gathered are; The basest meet unknown to me, And never cease my name to tear. 16 With scoffing hypocrites at feasts, Who get their bread with flatteries; They gnash against me with their teeth, and sland'rous jests on me devise. 17 O Lord how long wilt thou look on? From their destruction rescue me! My precious soul make haste to save, My dearest from young lions free; 18 So I to thee will render thanks Within the congregation great: And I will celebrate thy praise, Where multitudes to worship meet. [3 Part] 19 O let them not o'er me rejoice, Who are my wrongful enemies; Not those who hate me causlesly, Deride me with their scornful eyes. 20 For they, nor speak, nor aim for peace; But they the words of fraud contrive, Against those people in the land Who love in quietness to live. 21 Yea they with open mouths on me Laugh out and say, "Our eye it saw!" 22 LORD, Thou hast seen: hold not they peace: Lord, do not far from me withdraw. 23 O to my judgment and my cause My God, my Lord, awake and rise: 24 LORD judge me in thy righteousness, My God, lest they o'er me rejoice. 25 O never let their hearts exult, "Ha! ha! our souls desire have we!" Nor ever suffer them to boast, That they have wholly swallow'd me. 26 Confounded and asham'd shall be All those who at my hurt are glad; And those who now against me boast, With shame and with disgrace be clad. 27 Let those who love my righteous cause, Rejoyce and shout; and never cease To say, "The LORD be magnify'd, "Who loves to see his servants peace." 28 And so, to shout thy righteousness, Shall be th' employment of my tongue; And thy high praises to set forth, From day to day, and all day long Scripture: Psalm 35 Languages: English

A Psalm of David

Hymnal: The Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs of the Old and New-Testament #PXXXV (1742) Hymnal Title: The Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs of the Old and New-Testament First Line: Plead Lord with them that with me plead Lyrics: 1 Plead Lord with them that with me plead Against them fight that fight with me. 2 Of shield and buckler take thou hold, Stand up my helper for to be. 3 Draw out the spear and stop the way 'Gainst them that my pursuers be; And to my soul, Oh do thou say, I am salvation unto thee. 4 Let them confounded be and sham'd That seek my soul how they may spill: Let them be turned back and sham'd That in their thoughts devise mine ill. 5 As chaff before the wind be they. God's angel let them drive also. 6 Let dark and slippery be their way, God's angel drive them to and fro. 7 For causlesly within a pit They hidden have for me a net; They causelesly have digged it, That they therein my soul may get. 8 Let seize upon him unaware Destruction; let his net withal That he hat hid, himself insnare, Into that ruin let him fall. 9 My soul shall in the Lord rejoyce, In his salvation joyful be. 10 My bones shall say as with one voice Jehovah, who is like to thee, Who sett'st the poor afflicted free From him that is for him too strong; Yea, such as poor and needy be, From him that spoileth him with wrong? [2] 11 False witnesses die up arise, What I knew not they charg'd on me. 12 They pay me ill for good likewise Whereby my soul might spoiled be. 13 But as for me, when sick they were, My cloathing then of sackcloth was: My soul I bow'd with fasts, my pray'r Did back into my bosom pass. 14 As he my friend and brother were So my behavior I have kept: I bowed down with heavy chear As one that for his mother wept. 15 But they were glad my woe to see And they together gathered were; Ya, th' abjects 'gainst me gathered be, And restless me unwitting tear. 16 They mocking parasites among, In feasts do gnash their teeth at me. 17 O Lord how long wilt thou look on? My soul from their destruction free: My darling free from lions set. 18 So will I give thee than ks always Within the congregation great: Among much people I'll thee praise. [3] 19 O let them not rejoyce o'er me, That are my wrongful enemies: And they that hate me causlesly, Let them not twinkle with their eyes. 20 Because they do not speak for peace, But in their thoughts they do invent Against them plots of guilefulness, That in the land for peace are bent. 21 Their mouth 'gainst me hath open'd been And said, ah, ah, our eye it saw. 22 Lord be not silent, thou hast seen; Lord, do not far from me withdraw. 23 Arise and to my judgment wake, My God and Lord unto my plea. 24 Lord judge me for thy justice sake, My God lest o'er me joy should they. 25 Let them not say their hearts within, Aha, our souls desire have we: Now have we quite up swallowed him, Oh let them never say of me. 26 Sham'd let them and confounded be At once, who at my hurt are glad; Let such as boast themselves 'gainst me, With shame and with disgrace be clad. 27 Let them be glad and shout for joy, That favour do my righteous cause: Yea let them say continually, Extolled be the Lord with praise, Who in his servants faring well Doth his delightful pleasure take. 28 So shall my tongue thy justice tell: And of thy praise all day shall speak.
