12 Do not abandon me to the desire of my foes; malicious and lying witnesses have risen against me.
20 My enemies live and grow strong, those who hate me grow numerous fraudulently,21 Repaying me evil for good, accusing me for pursuing good.(A)
5 They repay me evil for good, hatred for my love.(A)
20 Must good be repaid with evil that they should dig a pit to take my life?Remember that I stood before you to speak on their behalf, to turn your wrath away from them.(A)
