The Lawyer’s Psalm?

Malicious witnesses testify against me. They accuse me of crimes I know Emily Page Thirty-One Thirty One join Proverbs 31 work from home business income sahm wahm husband lawyer attorney psalm 35 faith dad fathernothing about. … I am attacked by people I don’t even know; they slander me constantly. They mock me and call me names; they snarl at me. How long, O Lord, will you look on and do nothing? …They don’t talk of peace; they plot against innocent people who mind their own business. They shout, “Aha! Aha! With our own eyes we saw him do it!”

O Lord , you know all about this. Do not stay silent. Do not abandon me now, O Lord. Wake up! Rise to my defense! Take up my case, my God and my Lord. Declare me not guilty, O Lord  my God, for you give justice. Don’t let my enemies laugh about me in my troubles. Don’t let them say, “Look, we got what we wanted! Now we will eat him alive!”

May those who rejoice at my troubles be humiliated and disgraced. May those who triumph over me be covered with shame and dishonor. But give great joy to those who came to my defense. Let them continually say, “Great is the Lord , who delights in blessing his servant with peace!” Then I will proclaim your justice, and I will praise you all day long. ~ excerpts from Psalms 35:11-28 NLT
