Unjust witnesses rising up have asked me things I knew not.
They repaid me evil for good:
to the depriving me of my soul.
But as for me, when they were troublesome to me,
I was clothed with haircloth.
I humbled my soul with fasting;
and my prayer shall be turned into my bosom.
As a neighbour and as an own brother, so did I please:
as one mourning and sorrowful so was I humbled.
But they rejoiced against me, and came together:
scourges were gathered together upon me, and I knew not.
They were separated, and repented not:
they tempted me, they scoffed at me with scorn:
they gnashed upon me with their teeth.
Lord, when wilt thou look upon me?
Rescue thou soul from their malice:
my only one from the lions.
