Arise, O LORD; save me, O my God! For You have smitten all my enemies on the cheek; You have shattered the teeth of the wicked.
They open wide their mouth at me, As a ravening and a roaring lion.
But at my stumbling they rejoiced and gathered themselves together; The smiters whom I did not know gathered together against me, They slandered me without ceasing.
They opened their mouth wide against me; They said, "Aha, aha, our eyes have seen it!"
