Psalm 35 New International Version (NIV)
1 Contend, Lord, with those who contend with me;
4 May those who seek my life
7 Since they hid their net for me without cause
11 Ruthless witnesses come forward;
17 How long, Lord, will you look on?
22 Lord, you have seen this; do not be silent.
26 May all who gloat over my distress
28 My tongue will proclaim your righteousness,
Psalm 35 New King James Version (NKJV)
The Lord the Avenger of His People
A Psalm of David.
35 Plead[a] my cause, O Lord, with those who strive with me;
4 Let those be put to shame and brought to dishonor
9 And my soul shall be joyful in the Lord;
11 Fierce witnesses rise up;
15 But in my [g]adversity they rejoiced
17 Lord, how long will You look on?
19 Let them not rejoice over me who are wrongfully my enemies;
22 This You have seen, O Lord;
26 Let them be ashamed and brought to mutual confusion
27 Let them shout for joy and be glad,
Psalm 35 New Living Translation (NLT)

1 O Lord, oppose those who oppose me.

26 May those who rejoice at my troubles
Psalm 35 Good News Translation (GNT)
A Prayer for Help[a]
35 Oppose those who oppose me, Lord,
4 May those who try to kill me
7 Without any reason they laid a trap for me
9 Then I will be glad because of the Lord;
11 Evil people testify against me
15 But when I was in trouble, they were all glad
17 How much longer, Lord, will you just look on?
19 Don't let my enemies, those liars,
20 They do not speak in a friendly way;
26 May those who gloat over my suffering
27 May those who want to see me acquitted

11 Malicious witnesses rise up;
15 But at my stumbling they gathered in glee,
17 How long, O Lord, will you look on?
19 Do not let my treacherous enemies rejoice over me,
22 You have seen, O Lord; do not be silent!
