With the profanest mockeries of backbiting they gnash at me with their teeth.
L-rd, how long wilt Thou look on? Rescue my soul from their destructions, mine only one from the lions.
I will give Thee thanks in the great congregation; I will praise Thee among a numerous people.
Let not them that are wrongfully mine enemies rejoice over me; neither let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause.
For they speak not peace; but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land.
Yea, they open their mouth wide against me; they say: 'Aha, aha, our eye hath seen it.'
Thou hast seen, O HaShem; keep not silence; O L-rd, be not far from me.
Rouse Thee, and awake to my judgment, even unto my cause, my G-d and my L-rd.
Judge me, O HaShem my G-d, according to Thy righteousness; and let them not rejoice over me.
Let them not say in their heart: 'Aha, we have our desire'; let them not say: 'We have swallowed him up.'
Let them be ashamed and abashed together that rejoice at my hurt; let them be clothed with shame and confusion that magnify themselves against me.
Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that delight in my righteousness; yea, let them say continually: 'Magnified be HaShem, who delighteth in the peace of His servant.'
And my tongue shall speak of Thy righteousness, and of Thy praise all the day.
