David wants his enemies put to shame (Ps 35:25-35:26)

“Do not let them say to themselves.

‘Aha, we have our heart’s desire.’

Do not let them say.

‘We have swallowed you up.’

Let all those who rejoice at my calamity

Be put to shame and confusion!

Let those who exalt themselves against me

Be clothed with shame and dishonor!”

David wanted his enemies not to be able to say that they had achieved their heart’s desire. He did not want them to be able to say that they had swallowed up David. Instead, he wanted those who rejoiced at his hardships to be put to shame and confusion. He wanted all those who put him down to be clothed with shame and dishonor. David wanted his enemies shamed.
