This is a podcast episode titled, Dealing with Those Who Want to Harm You | Psalm 35. The summary for this episode is: Anyone who takes the Bible seriously knows we live in a world where there is real evil. And that evil can take deep root in people’s lives so that they are motivated to bring evil into our lives. To do us harm. To hurt us in some way. That was David’s circumstance as he prayed Psalm 35. And I think his prayer is a great example for us as we deal with people with evil intentions in our lives. What should you do? How should you pray in such situations? Let’s look at how David does it in this episode. Psalm 35 ESV Of David.  1 Contend, O LORD, with those who contend with me; fight against those who fight against me! 3 Say to my soul, “I am your salvation!”  4 Let them be put to shame and dishonor who seek after my life! Let them be turned back and disappointed who devise evil against me!  5 Let them be like chaff before the wind, with the angel of the LORD driving them away! 11 Malicious witnesses rise up; they ask me of things that I do not know.  12 They repay me evil for good; my soul is bereft. 17 How long, O Lord, will you look on? Rescue me from their destruction, my precious life from the lions!  22 You have seen, O LORD; be not silent! O Lord, be not far from me!  23 Awake and rouse yourself for my vindication, for my cause, my God and my Lord!  24 Vindicate me, O LORD, my God, according to your righteousness, and let them not rejoice over me!  26 Let them be put to shame and disappointed altogether who rejoice at my calamity! Let them be clothed with shame and dishonor who magnify themselves against me!
