To the director on The Lilies.*+ Of David.
4 Those hating me without a cause have become even more than the hairs of my head.+
Those bringing me to silence, being my enemies for no reason, have become numerous.+
5 What I had not taken by robbery I then proceeded to give back.
O God, you yourself have come to know my foolishness,
And from you my own guiltiness has not been hidden.+
6 O may those hoping in you not be ashamed because of me,+
O Sovereign Lord, Jehovah of armies.+
O may those seeking you not be humiliated because of me,+
O God of Israel.+
7 For on your account I have borne reproach,+
Humiliation has covered my face.+
8 I have become one estranged to my brothers,+
And a foreigner to the sons of my mother.+
9 For sheer zeal for your house has eaten me up,+
And the very reproaches of those reproaching you have fallen upon me.+
16 Answer me, O Jehovah, for your loving-kindness is good.+
According to the multitude of your mercies turn to me,+
17And do not conceal your face from your servant.+
Because I am in sore straits, answer me quickly.+
18 Do come near to my soul, reclaim it;+
On account of my enemies redeem me.+
19 You yourself have come to know my reproach and my shame and my humiliation.+
All those showing hostility to me are in front of you.+
20 Reproach itself has broken my heart, and [the wound] is incurable.+
And I kept hoping for someone to show sympathy, but there was none;+
And for comforters, but I found none.+
21But for food* they gave [me] a poisonous plant,*+
And for my thirst they tried to make me drink vinegar.+
22 Let their table before them become a trap,+
And what is for their welfare a snare.+
1 Do conduct my case, O Jehovah,* against my opponents;+
War against those warring against me.+
2 Take hold of buckler and large shield,+
And do rise up in assistance of me,+
3 And draw spear and double ax to meet those pursuing me.+
Say to my soul: “I am your salvation.”+
4 May those be shamed and humiliated who are hunting for my soul.+
May those be turned back and be abashed who are scheming calamity for me.+
5 May they become like chaff before the wind,+
And let Jehovah’s angel be pushing [them] along.+
6 Let their way become darkness and slippery places,+
And let Jehovah’s angel be pursuing them.
7 For without cause they have hid for me their netted pit;+
Without cause they have dug it for my soul.*+
8 Let ruin come upon him without his knowing,+
And let his own net that he hid catch him;+
With ruin let him fall into it.+
9 But let my own soul be joyful in Jehovah;+
Let it exult in his salvation.+
10 Let all my bones themselves say:+
“O Jehovah, who is there like you,+
Delivering the afflicted one from one stronger than he is,+
And the afflicted and poor one from the one robbing him?”+
11 Violent witnesses rise up;+
What I have not known they ask me.+
12 They reward me with bad for good,+
Bereavement to my soul.+
13 As for me, when they became ill, my clothing was sackcloth,+
With fasting I afflicted my soul,+
And upon my bosom my own prayer would return.+
14 As for a companion, as for a brother of mine,+
I walked about like one mourning for a mother.+
Saddened, I bowed down.
15 But at my limping they rejoiced and gathered together;+
They gathered together against me,+
Striking [me] down when I did not know it;+
They ripped [me] to pieces and did not keep silent.+
16 Among the apostate mockers for a cake*+
There was a grinding* of their teeth even against me.+
17 O Jehovah,* how long will you keep seeing [it]?+
Do bring back my soul from their ravages,+
Even my only one*+ from the maned young lions.
18 I will laud you in the big congregation;*+
Among a numerous people I shall praise you.+
19 O may those who for no reason are my enemies not rejoice over me;+
As for those hating me without cause, let them not wink the eye.+
20 For it is not peace that they speak;+
But against the quiet ones of the earth
Things of deception they keep scheming.+
21 And they open wide their mouth even against me.+
They have said: “Aha! Aha! our eye has seen [it].”+
22 You have seen, O Jehovah.*+ Do not keep silent.*+
O Jehovah,* do not keep yourself far from me.+
23 Do arouse yourself* and awake to my judgment,+
O my God, even Jehovah,* to my case at law.+
24 Judge me according to your righteousness, O Jehovah* my God,+
And may they not rejoice over me.+
25 O may they not say in their heart: “Aha, our soul!”*+
May they not say: “We have swallowed him up.”+
26 Let those be ashamed and abashed all together+
Who are joyful at my calamity.+
Let those be clothed with shame+ and humiliation who are assuming great airs against me.+
27 Let those cry out joyfully and rejoice who are delighting in my righteousness,+
And let them say constantly:+
“Let Jehovah* be magnified, who takes delight in the peace of his servant.”
28 And let my own tongue utter in an undertone your righteousness,+
All day long your praise.+

NEW WORLD TRANSLATION OF THE HOLY SCRIPTURES
It is a very responsible thing to translate the Holy Scriptures from their original languages of Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek into modern speech. Translating the Holy Scriptures means rendering into another language the thoughts and sayings of Jehovah God, the heavenly Author of this sacred library of sixty-six books that holy men of long ago were inspired to write down for our benefit today.
That is a very sobering thought. The translators of this work, who fear and love the Divine Author of the Holy Scriptures, feel toward Him a special responsibility to transmit his thoughts and declarations as accurately as possible. They also feel a responsibility toward the searching readers who depend upon a translation of the inspired Word of the Most High God for their everlasting salvation.
It was with such a sense of solemn responsibility that over the course of many years the committee of dedicated men have produced the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures. The entire work was originally released in six volumes, from 1950 to 1960. From the start it was the desire of the translators to have all these volumes brought together into one book, inasmuch as the Holy Scriptures are in actuality one book by the One Author. While the original volumes contained marginal references and footnotes, the revised one-volume edition, released in 1960, contained neither footnotes nor marginal references. A second revision was released in 1970 and a third revision with footnotes followed in 1971. In 1969 the committee released The Kingdom Interlinear Translation of the Greek Scriptures, which presented under the Greek text revised by Westcott and Hort (1948 Reprint) a literal word-for-word translation into English. During the past 34 years the New World Translation has been translated in part or in its entirety into ten other languages, with a total printing and distribution surpassing 39 million.
This new edition is not just a refinement of the translated text beyond its already previous revisions, but it offers a complete updating and revision of the footnote apparatus and marginal (cross) references that were initially presented in English, from 1950 to 1960.
For information as to the features of this revised edition and the service it can render to the users, we refer you to the Introduction. This 1984 revision has been released by us to the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society of Pennsylvania for printing, translation into other leading languages and distribution. We thus make it available with a deep sense of gratitude to the Divine Author of the Holy Scriptures, who has so privileged us and in whose spirit we have trusted in producing this revision. We pray for his blessing upon those who use this translation for spiritual advancement.

The purpose of this website is to expose the Mormon Church of Satan and all enemies of Jesus Christ the Way the Truth the Life, the Prince of Peace. This website is also the beginning of a presidential campaign to elect Caroline Kennedy President of the United States. I prayed to Jehovah God to please, by means of His son Christ Jesus, please, arrange national events and world events in such a manner such that Caroline Kennedy is elected President of the United States. I know Jehovah God hears my prayer and will answer my prayer because that particular prayer of mine is one of my deepest desires and Jehovah God has promised me that he will satisfy all of my deepest desires. All of the information posted at this website is interconnected; directly connected to the Mormon Church of Satan’s illegal sting operation surrounding Jehovah’s Witnesses worldwide, and me. The illegal sting operation that encompasses every human being on earth, and has resulted in the LEGAL CASE, unlike any other, ever.
