This Psalm is full of a lot of really nasty wishing... when David wrote it, he must have been in a bad mood. He hopes his enemies days are few, that his prayers are counted as sin, that his children will be beggars in the streets-- it goes on and on.
Despite it's sour topic, there is a lot to like about this Psalm. It's a perfect Psalm to sing when it seems your enemies are closing in on you, slandering you, taking advantage of you.

I think the haunting, almost story-like melody really fits well for this one. It's not exactly "catchy," and yet there's something compelling to it.

So enjoy, but I hope you don't find yourself needing to sing it anytime soon! :)

Blessings.
