Psalm 55:20-21

20-21And this, my best friend, betrayed his best friends;

his life betrayed his word.

All my life I've been charmed by his speech,

never dreaming he'd turn on me.

His words, which were music to my ears,

turned to daggers in my heart.

22-23Pile your troubles on God's shoulders—

he'll carry your load, he'll help you out.

He'll never let good people

topple into ruin.

But you, God, will throw the others

into a muddy bog,

Cut the lifespan of assassins

and traitors in half.

And I trust in you.
