Salmos 109

Al director musical. Salmo de David.

1Oh Dios, alabanza mía,
    no guardes silencio.
Pues gente impía y mentirosa
    ha declarado en mi contra,
    y con lengua engañosa me difaman;
con expresiones de odio me acosan,
    y sin razón alguna me atacan.
Mi amor me lo pagan con calumnias,
    mientras yo me encomiendo a Dios.
Mi bondad la pagan con maldad;
    en vez de amarme, me aborrecen.

Pon en su contra a un malvado;
    que a su derecha esté su acusador.[a]
Que resulte culpable al ser juzgado,
    y que sus propias oraciones lo condenen.
Que se acorten sus días,
    y que otro se haga cargo de su oficio.
Que se queden huérfanos sus hijos;
    que se quede viuda su esposa.
10 Que anden sus hijos vagando y mendigando;
    que anden rebuscando entre las ruinas.
11 Que sus acreedores se apoderen de sus bienes;
    que gente extraña saquee sus posesiones.
12 Que nadie le extienda su bondad;
    que nadie se compadezca de sus huérfanos.
13 Que sea exterminada su descendencia;
    que desaparezca su nombre en la próxima generación.
14 Que recuerde el Señor la iniquidad de su padre,
    y no se olvide del pecado de su madre.
15 Que no les quite el Señor la vista de encima,
    y que borre de la tierra su memoria.

16 Por cuanto se olvidó de hacer el bien,
    y persiguió hasta la muerte
    a pobres, afligidos y menesterosos,
17 y porque le encantaba maldecir,
    ¡que caiga sobre él la maldición!
Por cuanto no se complacía en bendecir,
    ¡que se aleje de él la bendición!
18 Por cuanto se cubrió de maldición
    como quien se pone un vestido,
¡que esta se filtre en su cuerpo como el agua!,
    ¡que penetre en sus huesos como el aceite!
19 ¡Que lo envuelva como un manto!
    ¡Que lo apriete en todo tiempo como un cinto!
20 ¡Que así les pague el Señor a mis acusadores,
    a los que me calumnian!

21 Pero tú, Señor Soberano,
    trátame bien por causa de tu nombre;
    líbrame por tu bondad y gran amor.
22 Ciertamente soy pobre y estoy necesitado;
    profundamente herido está mi corazón.
23 Me voy desvaneciendo como sombra vespertina;
    se desprenden de mí como de una langosta.
24 De tanto ayunar me tiemblan las rodillas;
    la piel se me pega a los huesos.
25 Soy para ellos motivo de burla;
    me ven, y menean la cabeza.

26 Señor, mi Dios, ¡ayúdame!;
    por tu gran amor, ¡sálvame!
27 Que sepan que esta es tu mano;
    que tú mismo, Señor, lo has hecho.
28 ¿Qué importa que ellos me maldigan?
    ¡Bendíceme tú!
Pueden atacarme, pero quedarán avergonzados;
    en cambio, este siervo tuyo se alegrará.
29 ¡Queden mis acusadores cubiertos de deshonra,
    envueltos en un manto de vergüenza!

30 Por mi parte, daré muchas gracias al Señor;
    lo alabaré entre una gran muchedumbre.
31 Porque él aboga por el[b] necesitado
    para salvarlo de quienes lo condenan.

Psalm 109

Vengeance Invoked upon Adversaries.

For the choir director. A Psalm of David.

1O God of my praise,
Do not be silent!
For they have opened the [a]wicked and deceitful mouth against me;
They have spoken [b]against me with a lying tongue.
They have also surrounded me with words of hatred,
And fought against me without cause.
In return for my love they act as my accusers;
But I am in prayer.
Thus they have [c]repaid me evil for good
And hatred for my love.

Appoint a wicked man over him,
And let an [d]accuser stand at his right hand.
When he is judged, let him come forth guilty,
And let his prayer become sin.
Let his days be few;
Let another take his office.
Let his children be fatherless
And his wife a widow.
10 Let his children wander about and beg;
And let them seek sustenance [e]far from their ruined homes.
11 Let the creditor [f]seize all that he has,
And let strangers plunder the product of his labor.
12 Let there be none to [g]extend lovingkindness to him,
Nor any to be gracious to his fatherless children.
13 Let his posterity be [h]cut off;
In a following generation let their name be blotted out.

14 Let the iniquity of his fathers be remembered [i]before the Lord,
And do not let the sin of his mother be blotted out.
15 Let them be before the Lord continually,
That He may cut off their memory from the earth;
16 Because he did not remember to show lovingkindness,
But persecuted the afflicted and needy man,
And the despondent in heart, to put them to death.
17 He also loved cursing, so it came to him;
And he did not delight in blessing, so it was far from him.
18 But he clothed himself with cursing as with his garment,
And it entered into [j]his body like water
And like oil into his bones.
19 Let it be to him as a garment with which he covers himself,
And for a belt with which he constantly girds himself.
20 [k]Let this be the reward of my accusers from the Lord,
And of those who speak evil against my soul.

21 But You, O [l]God, the Lord, deal kindly with me for Your name’s sake;
Because Your lovingkindness is good, deliver me;
22 For I am afflicted and needy,
And [m]my heart is wounded within me.
23 I am passing like a shadow when it lengthens;
I am shaken off like the locust.
24 My knees [n]are weak from fasting,
And my flesh has grown lean, without fatness.
25 I also have become a reproach to them;
When they see me, they wag their head.

26 Help me, O Lord my God;
Save me according to Your lovingkindness.
27 [o]And let them know that this is Your hand;
You, Lord, have done it.
28 Let them curse, but You bless;
When they arise, they shall be ashamed,
But Your servant shall be glad.
29 [p]Let my accusers be clothed with dishonor,
And [q]let them cover themselves with their own shame as with a robe.

30 With my mouth I will give thanks abundantly to the Lord;
And in the midst of many I will praise Him.
31 For He stands at the right hand of the needy,
To save him from those who judge his soul.
