A David Prayer
1 My God, don’t turn a deaf ear to my hallelujah prayer.
2 Liars are pouring out invective on me; Their lying tongues are like a pack of #dogs out to get me,
3 barking their hate, nipping my heels —- and for no reason!
4 I love them and now they slander me —- yes, me! —- and treat my prayer like a crime;
5 They return my good with evil, they return my #love with #hate.
6 Send the #Evil One to #accuse my accusing jugde; dispatch #Satan to #prosecute him.
7 When he’s judged, let the verdict be, “Guilty,” and when he prays, let his prayer turn to sin.
8 Give him a short life, and give his job to somebody else,
9 Make orphans of his children dress his wife in widow’s weeds;
10 Turn his children into begging street urchins, evicted from their homes —- homeless.
11 May the bank foreclose and wipe him out, and strangers, like vultures, pick him clean.
12 May there be no one around to help him out, no one willing to give his orphans a break.
13 Chop down his family tree so that nobody even remembers his name.
Psalm 109:1-13 from Bible The Message version.
