King James Bible
When he shall be judged, let him be condemned: and let his prayer become sin.
Darby Bible Translation
When he shall be judged, let him go out guilty, and let his prayer become sin;
World English Bible
When he is judged, let him come forth guilty. Let his prayer be turned into sin.
Young's Literal Translation
In his being judged, he goeth forth wicked, And his prayer is for sin.
Psalm 109:7 Parallel

That godly sorrow then I feel, Which nothing can control, Until the hand that wounded, heal, That bruised me, …

The Destruction of Jerusalem
Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment, nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.
If anyone turns a deaf ear to my instruction, even their prayers are detestable.
