35:1 Strive thou, O Jehovah, with them that strive with me: Fight thou against them that fight against me.
35:3 Draw out also the spear, and stop the way against them that pursue me: Say unto my soul, I am thy salvation.
35:4 Let them be put to shame and brought to dishonor that seek after my soul: Let them be turned back and confounded that devise my hurt.

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 words against them that are quiet in the land.
35:23 Stir up thyself, and awake to the justice `due' unto me, `Even' unto my cause, my God and my Lord.
35:25 Let them not say in their heart, Aha, so would we have it: Let them not say, We have swallowed him up.
35:26 Let them be put to shame and confounded together that rejoice at my 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, Jehovah be magnified, Who hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
35:28 And my tongue shall talk of thy righteousness `And' of thy praise all the day long. Psalm 36 For the Chief Musician. `A Psalm' of David the servant of Jehovah.
