Psalm 35
21st Century King James Version (KJ21)

“1) Plead my cause, O Lord, with them that strive with me; fight against them that fight against me.
2) Take hold of shield and buckler, and stand up for mine help.
3) Draw out also the spear, and block the way against them that persecute me. Say unto my soul, “I am thy salvation.”
4) Let them be confounded and put to shame that seek after my soul; let them be turned back and brought to confusion that devise my hurt.
5) Let them be as chaff before the wind, and let the angel of the Lord chase them.
6) Let their way be dark and slippery, and let the angel of the Lord persecute them.
7) For without cause they have hid their net for me in a pit, which without cause they have dug for my soul.
8) Let destruction come upon him unawares; and let the net which he hath hidden catch himself; into that very destruction let him fall.
9) Then my soul shall be joyful in the Lord; it shall rejoice in His salvation.
10) All my bones shall say, “Lord, who is like unto Thee, who deliverest the poor from him that is too strong for him, yea, the poor and needy from him that would plunder him?”
11) False witnesses rose up; they laid to my charge things that I knew not.
12) They rewarded me evil for good, to the grieving of my soul.
13) But as for me, when they were sick my clothing was sackcloth; I humbled my soul with fasting, and my prayer returned unto mine own bosom.
14) I behaved myself as though he had been my friend or brother; I bowed down in heaviness, as one that mourneth for his mother.
15) But in mine adversity they rejoiced and gathered themselves together; yea, the abjects gathered themselves together against me, and I knew it not; they tore at me and ceased not.
16) With hypocritical mockers at feasts they gnashed their teeth against me.
17) Lord, how long wilt Thou look on? Rescue my soul from their destructions, my precious soul from the lions.
18) I will give Thee thanks in the great congregation; I will praise Thee among many people.
19) Let not them that are mine enemies wrongfully rejoice over me; neither let them wink with the eye that hate me without a cause.
20) For they speak not peace, but they devise deceitful matters against them that are quiet in the land.
21) Yea, they opened their mouths wide against me and said, “Aha, aha! Our eyes have seen it.”
22) This Thou hast seen, O Lord; keep not silence; O Lord, be not far from me.
23) Stir up Thyself, and awake to my judgment, even unto my cause, my God and my Lord.
24) Judge me, O Lord my God, according to Thy righteousness; and let them not rejoice over me.
25) Let them not say in their hearts, “Ah, so would we have it!” Let them not say, “We have swallowed him up.”
26) Let them be ashamed and brought to confusion together that rejoice at my hurt; let them be clothed with shame and dishonor that magnify themselves against me.
27) Let them shout for joy and be glad that favor my righteous cause; yea, let them say continually, “Let the Lord be magnified who hath pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.”
28) And my tongue shall speak of Thy righteousness and of Thy praise all the day long.”

Matthew 22:35-40

Matthew 22:35-40
“35) Then one of them, which was a lawyer, asked Him a question, tempting Him, and saying,
36)’Master, which is the great commandment in the law?’
37) Jesus said to him, ‘You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.
38) This is the first and great commandment.
39) And the second is like it, You shall love your neighbour as yourself.
40) On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.'”

Psalm 140
21st Century King James Version (KJ21)

“1) Deliver me, O Lord, from the evil man; preserve me from the violent man,
2) who imagine mischiefs in their heart; continually are they gathered together for war.
3) They have sharpened their tongues like a serpent; adders’ poison is under their lips. Selah
4) Keep me, O Lord, from the hands of the wicked; preserve me from the violent man, who has purposed to overthrow my goings.
5) The proud have hid a snare for me, and with cords they have spread a net by the wayside; they have set traps for me. Selah
6) I said unto the Lord, “Thou art my God; hear the voice of my supplications, O Lord.
7) O God the Lord, the strength of my salvation, Thou hast covered my head in the day of battle.
8) Grant not, O Lord, the desires of the wicked; further not his wicked device, lest they exalt themselves. Selah
9) “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 on the earth; evil shall hunt the violent man to overthrow him.”
12) 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.”
