R.
I was like a lamb that is innocent,
I was brought to the slaughter, and I knew it not;
mine enemies have taken counsel against me, saying:
Come, let us put wood into his bread,
 and let us root him out of the land of the living.
V.
All mine enemies have thought evil things against me,
and have spoken against me, saying:
Come, let us put wood into his bread,
and let us root him out of the land of the living.
