New International Version
11 Ruthless witnesses(A) come forward;
they question me on things I know nothing about.
12 They repay me evil for good(B)
and leave me like one bereaved.
13 Yet when they were ill, I put on sackcloth(C)
and humbled myself with fasting.(D)
When my prayers returned to me unanswered,
14 I went about mourning(E)
as though for my friend or brother.
I bowed my head in grief
as though weeping for my mother.
15 But when I stumbled, they gathered in glee;(F)
assailants gathered against me without my knowledge.
They slandered(G) me without ceasing.
16 Like the ungodly they maliciously mocked;[a](H)
they gnashed their teeth(I) at me.
- Psalm 35:16 Septuagint; Hebrew may mean Like an ungodly circle of mockers,
