    King James Bible - Psalms 38:20

    They also that render evil for good are mine adversaries; because I follow the thing that good is.

    World English Bible

    They who also render evil for good are adversaries to me, because I
    follow what is good.

    Douay-Rheims - Psalms 38:20

    They that render evil for good, have detracted me, because I followed goodness.

    Webster's Bible Translation

    They also that render evil for good are my adversaries; because I
    follow the thing that is good.

    Original Hebrew

    ומשׁלמי
    7999 רעה 7451 תחת 8478 טובה 2896 ישׂטנוני 7853 תחת 8478 רדופי 7291 טוב׃ 7291

    SEV Biblia, Chapter 38:20

    y pagando mal por bien me son contrarios, por seguir yo lo bueno.

    Clarke's Bible Commentary - Psalms 37:20

    Verse 20. Because l
    follow the thing that good is. ] The translation is as bad as the sentence is awkward. bwf ypdr tjt tachath rodpi tob, because I follow goodness. There is a remarkable addition to this verse in the Arabic: "They have rejected me, the beloved one, as an abominable dead carcass; they have pierced my body with nails." I suppose the Arabic translator meant to refer this to Christ.

    None of the other Versions have any thing like this addition; only the AEthiopic adds, "They rejected their brethren as an unclean carcass." St. Ambrose says this reading was found in some Greek and Latin copies in his time; and Theodouret has nearly the same reading with the Arabic: kai aperriyan me ton agaphton, wv nekron ebdelugmenonĚ "And they cast me, the beloved, out, as an abominable dead carcass." Whence this reading came I cannot conjecture.


    Matthew Henry Commentary

    Verses 12-22 - Wicked men hate goodness, even when they benefit by it. David, in the complaints he makes of his enemies, seems to refer to Christ. But ou enemies do us real mischief only when they drive us from God and ou duty. The true believer's trouble will be made useful; he will learn to wait for his God, and will not seek relief from the world or himself The less we notice the unkindness and injuries that are done us, the more we consult the quiet of our own minds. David's troubles were the chastisement and the consequence of his transgressions, whilst Chris suffered for our sins and ours only. What right can a sinner have to yield to impatience or anger, when mercifully corrected for his sins David was very sensible of the present workings of corruption in him Good men, by setting their sorrow continually before them, have bee ready to fall; but by setting God always before them, they have kep their standing. If we are truly penitent for sin, that will make u patient under affliction. Nothing goes nearer to the heart of believer when in affliction, than to be under the apprehension of God' deserting him; nor does any thing come more feelingly from his hear than this prayer, "Be not far from me." The Lord will hasten to hel those who trust in him as their salvation __________________________________________________________________
