and let his net that he hath hid catch himself; with destruction let him fall therein.

*Say Unto My Soul I Am Thy Yeshua*

ט וְנַפְשִׁי, תָּגִיל בַּיהוָה; תָּשִׂישׂ, בִּישׁוּעָתוֹ. 9

And my soul shall be joyful in jehovah; it shall rejoice in His yeshua.

*Say Unto My Soul I Am Thy Yeshua*

י כָּל עַצְמוֹתַי, תֹּאמַרְנָה– יְהוָה, מִי כָמוֹךָ:

מַצִּיל עָנִי, מֵחָזָק מִמֶּנּוּ; וְעָנִי וְאֶבְיוֹן, מִגֹּזְלוֹ. 10

All my bones shall say:

‘Jehovah, who is like unto Thee, {N}

who deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and the needy from him that spoileth him?’

*Say Unto My Soul I Am Thy Yeshua*

יא יְקוּמוּן, עֵדֵי חָמָס: אֲשֶׁר לֹא-יָדַעְתִּי, יִשְׁאָלוּנִי. 11

Unrighteous witnesses rise up; they ask me of things that I know not.

*Say Unto My Soul I Am Thy Yeshua*

יב יְשַׁלְּמוּנִי רָעָה, תַּחַת טוֹבָה: שְׁכוֹל לְנַפְשִׁי. 12

They repay me evil for good; bereavement is come to my soul.

*Say Unto My Soul I Am Thy Yeshua*

יג וַאֲנִי, בַּחֲלוֹתָם לְבוּשִׁי שָׂק– עִנֵּיתִי בַצּוֹם נַפְשִׁי;

וּתְפִלָּתִי, עַל-חֵיקִי תָשׁוּב. 13

But as for me, when they were sick, my clothing was sackcloth, I afflicted my soul with fasting; {N}

and my prayer, may it return into mine own bosom.

*Say Unto My Soul I Am Thy Yeshua*

יד כְּרֵעַ-כְּאָח לִי, הִתְהַלָּכְתִּי; כַּאֲבֶל-אֵם, קֹדֵר שַׁחוֹתִי. 14

I went about as though it had been my friend or my brother; I bowed down mournful, as one that mourneth for his mother.

*Say Unto My Soul I Am Thy Yeshua*

טו וּבְצַלְעִי, שָׂמְחוּ וְנֶאֱסָפוּ:

נֶאֶסְפוּ עָלַי נֵכִים, וְלֹא יָדַעְתִּי;

קָרְעוּ וְלֹא-דָמּוּ. 15

But when I halt they rejoice, and gather themselves together; {N}

the abjects gather themselves together against me, and those whom I know not; {N}

they tear me, and cease not;

*Say Unto My Soul I Am Thy Yeshua*

טז בְּחַנְפֵי, לַעֲגֵי מָעוֹג– חָרֹק עָלַי שִׁנֵּימוֹ. 16

With the profanest mockeries of backbiting they gnash at me with their teeth.

*Say Unto My Soul I Am Thy Yeshua*

יז אֲדֹנָי, כַּמָּה תִּרְאֶה:

הָשִׁיבָה נַפְשִׁי, מִשֹּׁאֵיהֶם; מִכְּפִירִים, יְחִידָתִי. 17

My Lord, how long wilt Thou look on? {N}

Rescue my soul from their destructions, mine only one from the lions.

*Say Unto My Soul I Am Thy Yeshua*

יח אוֹדְךָ, בְּקָהָל רָב; בְּעַם עָצוּם אֲהַלְלֶךָּ. 18

I will give Thee thanks in the great congregation; I will praise Thee among a numerous people.

*Say Unto My Soul I Am Thy Yeshua*

יט אַל-יִשְׂמְחוּ-לִי אֹיְבַי שֶׁקֶר; שֹׂנְאַי חִנָּם, יִקְרְצוּ-עָיִן. 19

Let not them that are wrongfully mine enemies rejoice over me; neither let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause.

*Say Unto My Soul I Am Thy Yeshua*

כ כִּי לֹא שָׁלוֹם, יְדַבֵּרוּ: וְעַל רִגְעֵי-אֶרֶץ–דִּבְרֵי מִרְמוֹת, יַחֲשֹׁבוּן. 20

For they speak not peace; but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land.

*Say Unto My Soul I Am Thy Yeshua*

כא וַיַּרְחִיבוּ עָלַי, פִּיהֶם: אָמְרוּ, הֶאָח הֶאָח; רָאֲתָה עֵינֵנוּ. 21

Yea, they open their mouth wide against me; they say:

‘Aha, aha, our eye hath seen it.’

*Say Unto My Soul I Am Thy Yeshua*

כב רָאִיתָה יְהוָה, אַל-תֶּחֱרַשׁ; אֲדֹנָי, אַל-תִּרְחַק מִמֶּנִּי. 22

Thou hast seen, O jehovah; keep not silence; my Lord, be not far from me.

*Say Unto My Soul I Am Thy Yeshua*

כג הָעִירָה וְהָקִיצָה, לְמִשְׁפָּטִי; אֱלֹהַי וַאדֹנָי לְרִיבִי. 23

Rouse Thee, and awake to my judgment, even unto my cause, my God and my Lord.

*Say Unto My Soul I Am Thy Yeshua*

כד שָׁפְטֵנִי כְצִדְקְךָ, יְהוָה אֱלֹהָי; וְאַל-יִשְׂמְחוּ-לִי. 24

Judge me, O jehovah my God, according to Thy righteousness; and let them not rejoice over me.

*Say Unto My Soul I Am Thy Yeshua*

כה אַל-יֹאמְרוּ בְלִבָּם, הֶאָח נַפְשֵׁנוּ; אַל-יֹאמְרוּ, בִּלַּעֲנוּהוּ. 25

Let them not say in their heart:

‘Aha, we have our desire’;

let them not say:

‘We have swallowed him up.’

*Say Unto My Soul I Am Thy Yeshua*

כו יֵבֹשׁוּ וְיַחְפְּרוּ, יַחְדָּו– שְׂמֵחֵי רָעָתִי:

יִלְבְּשׁוּ-בֹשֶׁת וּכְלִמָּה– הַמַּגְדִּילִים עָלָי. 26

Let them be ashamed and abashed together that rejoice at my hurt; {N}

let them be clothed with shame and confusion that magnify themselves against me.

*Say Unto My Soul I Am Thy Yeshua*

כז יָרֹנּוּ וְיִשְׂמְחוּ, חֲפֵצֵי צִדְקִי:

וְיֹאמְרוּ תָמִיד, יִגְדַּל יְהוָה; הֶחָפֵץ, שְׁלוֹם עַבְדּוֹ. 27

Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that delight in my righteousness; {N}

yea, let them say continually:

‘Magnified be jehovah, who delighteth in the peace of His servant.’

*Say Unto My Soul I Am Thy Yeshua*

כח וּלְשׁוֹנִי, תֶּהְגֶּה צִדְקֶךָ; כָּל-הַיּוֹם, תְּהִלָּתֶךָ. 28

And my tongue shall speak of Thy righteousness, and of Thy praise all the day. {P}

*Say Unto My Soul I Am Thy Yeshua*
