Because that he remembered not to show mercy, but persecuted the poor and needy man, that he might even slay the broken in heart.

As he loved cursing, so let it come unto him: as he delighted not in blessing, so let it be far from him.

Psalms 109:18

As he clothed himself with cursing like as with his garment, so let it come into his bowels like water, and like oil into his bones.

Let it be unto him as the garment [which] covereth him, and for a girdle wherewith he is girded continually.

[Let] this [be] the reward of mine adversaries from the LORD, and of them that speak evil against my soul.

Help me, O LORD my God: O save me according to thy mercy:

Psalms 109:27

That they may know that this [is] thy hand; [that] thou, LORD, hast done it.

Let them curse, but bless thou: when they arise, let them be ashamed; but let thy servant rejoice.

Let mine adversaries be clothed with shame, and let them cover themselves with their own confusion, as with a mantle.

I will greatly praise the LORD with my mouth; yea, I will praise him among the multitude.

For he shall stand at the right hand of the poor, to save [him] from those that condemn his soul.
