1 Hold not thy tongue, O God of my [a]praise.
2 For the mouth of the wicked, and the mouth full of deceit are opened upon me: they have spoken to me with a lying tongue.
3 They compassed me about also with words of hatred, and fought against me without a cause.
4 For my friendship they were my adversaries, [b]but I gave myself to prayer.
5 And they have rewarded me evil for good, and hatred for my friendship.
6 [c]Set thou the wicked over him, and let the adversary stand at his right hand.
7 When he shall be judged, let him be condemned, and let his [d]prayer be turned into sin.
