Good News Translation
10 They treat me with disgust;
they think they are too good for me,
and even come and spit in my face.
11 Because God has made me weak and helpless,
they turn against me with all their fury.
12 This mob attacks me head-on;
they send me running; they prepare their final assault.

12 On my right(F) the tribe[a] attacks;
they lay snares(G) for my feet,(H)
they build their siege ramps against me.(I)
