Let them be ashamed
LORD, do not let me be disgraced when I call on You. Let the wicked be disgraced; let them be silent in Sheol.
Let lying lips be quieted; they speak arrogantly against the righteous with pride and contempt.
Let those who seek to kill me be disgraced and humiliated; let those who plan to harm me be turned back and ashamed.
Let those who rejoice at my misfortune be disgraced and humiliated; let those who exalt themselves over me be clothed with shame and reproach.
Let those who seek my life be disgraced and confounded; let those who wish me harm be driven back and humiliated.
Let those who say, "Aha, aha!" retreat because of their shame.
May my adversaries be disgraced and confounded; may those who seek my harm be covered with disgrace and humiliation.
Be sure that all who are enraged against you will be ashamed and disgraced; those who contend with you will become as nothing and will perish.
It will be said to Me: Only in the LORD is righteousness and strength." All who are incensed against Him will come to Him and be put to shame.
"But when the tenant farmers saw the son, they said among themselves, 'This is the heir. Come, let's kill him and take his inheritance!'
So they seized him and threw him out of the vineyard, and killed him.
Therefore, when the owner of the vineyard comes, what will he do to those farmers?"
"He will completely destroy those terrible men," they told Him, "and lease his vineyard to other farmers who will give him his produce at the harvest."
When my enemies retreat, they stumble and perish before You.
When He told them, "I am He," they stepped back and fell to the ground.
Falling to the ground, he heard a voice saying to him, "Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting Me?"
"Who are You, Lord?" he said. "I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting," He replied.
"But get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do."
At once an angel of the Lord struck him because he did not give the glory to God, and he became infected with worms and died.
Then God's message flourished and multiplied.
