Malicious witnesses come forward, accuse me of things I do not know.
They repay me evil for good and I am all alone.
Yet I, when they were ill, put on sack-cloth, afflicted myself with fasting,
sobbed my prayers upon my bosom.
I went about in grief as for my brother, bent in mourning as for my mother.
Yet when I stumbled they gathered with glee; they gathered against me like strangers.
They slandered me without ceasing; without respect they mocked me,
gnashed their teeth against me.

Psalm 35 continued – verses 11-16
