Jesus Christ is Hated
Do not keep silent, O God of my praise! For the mouth of the wicked and the mouth of the deceitful Have opened against me [Messiah]; They have spoken against me with a lying tongue. They have also surrounded me with words of hatred, And fought against me without a cause. In return for my love they are my accusers, But I give myself to prayer.
Help me, O LORD my God! Oh, save me according to Your mercy, That they may know that this is Your hand-- That You, LORD, have done it! Let them curse, but You bless; When they arise, let them be ashamed, But let Your servant rejoice. Let my accusers be clothed with shame, And let them cover themselves with their own disgrace as with a mantle. I will greatly praise the LORD with my mouth; Yes, I will praise Him among the multitude. For He shall stand at the right hand of the poor, To save him from those who condemn him.
