As for the head of those that compass me about, let the mischief of their own lips cover them.10. Let burning coals fall upon them: let them be cast into the fire; into deep pits, that they rise not up again.11. Let not an evil speaker be established in the earth: evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow him. an…: or, an evil speaker (Heb. a man of tongue), a wicked man of violence, be established in the earth: let him be hunted to his overthrow12. I know that the LORD will maintain the cause of the afflicted, and the right of the poor.13. Surely the righteous shall give thanks unto thy name: the upright shall dwell in thy presence.
