Dearly beloved brethren, over and over both in the old and new testaments, saints and believers are informed that, their righteous stance will incur the wrath of the unrighteous.

Psalms 34:19 Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivereth him out of them all.
2 Timothy 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
John 15:17 These things I command you, that ye love one another. 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. 15:20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. 15:21 But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me. 15:22 If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloak for their sin. 15:23 He that hateth me hateth my Father also. 15:24 If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father. 15:25 But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.
The proud have forged a lie [ falsehood ] against me: but I will keep thy precepts, statues and decrees with my whole heart. – Psalms 119:69

But in addition, the scriptures revealed the biblical response of the righteous to those that are persecuting them.

See the admonitions from the scriptures on the attitude of Bible believing believers and you in particular to all those that are persecuting you without a cause.

Beloved see the exemplary lifestyle of our Lord to His persecutors.. He did exactly what He taught.

Acts 1:1 The former treatise have I made, O Theophilus, of all that Jesus began both to do and teach,
1 Peter 2:21 For even hereunto were ye called: because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that ye should follow his steps: 2:22 Who did no sin, neither was guile found in his mouth: 2:23 Who, when he was reviled, reviled not again; when he suffered, he threatened not; but committed himself to him that judgeth righteously:
The proud have forged a lie [ falsehood ] against me: but I will keep thy precepts, statues and decrees with my whole heart. – Psalms 119:69

See what our Lord taught us about believers response to persecution, which must be your own attitude too.

Matthew 5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 5:11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 5:12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.

In addition, see the exhortation of the blessed Holy Spirit on believers response to persecution.

1 Thessalonians 5:15 See that none render evil for evil unto any man; but ever follow that which is good, both among yourselves, and to all men.
Romans 12:14 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. 12:17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. 12:18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. 12:19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. 12:20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 12:21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
1 Peter 3:8 Finally, be ye all of one mind, having compassion one of another, love as brethren, be pitiful, be courteous: 3:9 Not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing: but contrariwise blessing; knowing that ye are thereunto called, that ye should inherit a blessing. 3:10 For he that will love life, and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips that they speak no guile: 3:11 Let him eschew evil, and do good; let him seek peace, and ensue it. 3:12 For the eyes of the Lord are over the righteous, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil. 3:13 And who is he that will harm you, if ye be followers of that which is good? 3:14 But and if ye suffer for righteousness’ sake, happy are ye: and be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled; 3:15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: 3:16 Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ. 3:17 For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing. 3:18 For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit:

This verse of the Bible reveals the stance of king David towards his persecutors. See it yourself.

The proud have forged a lie [ falsehood ] against me: but I will keep thy precepts, statues and decrees with my whole heart. – Psalms 119:69

See how the following verses affirmed that ,he was been persecuted.

Psalms 119:22 Remove from me reproach and contempt; for I have kept thy testimonies. 119:23 Princes also did sit and speak against me: but thy servant did meditate in thy statutes. 119:42 So shall I have wherewith to answer him that reproacheth me: for I trust in thy word. 119:78 Let the proud be ashamed; for they dealt perversely with me without a cause: but I will meditate in thy precepts.

But then, see his godly response to his persecutors.

Psalms 119:2 Blessed are they that keep his testimonies, and that seek him with the whole heart. 119:10 With my whole heart have I sought thee: O let me not wander from thy commandments. 119:34 Give me understanding, and I shall keep thy law; yea, I shall observe it with my whole heart.

Beloved, see this same passage in other Bible versions.

NLT
Psalms 119:69 Arrogant people smear me with lies, but in truth I obey your commandments with all my heart.

AMP BIBLE
Psalm 119:69 The arrogant and godless have put together a lie against me, but I will keep Your precepts with my whole heart.

In addition see the same passage amplified.

The proud have forged a lie against me; literally, patched up a lie against me . But I will keep thy precepts with my whole heart “The connection of the clauses is—that all the craft and malice of his enemies should only lead him to obey God with a more undivided heart than ever.

Beloved always remember, your righteous stance will incur the wrath of the ungodly. But then your response to their malicious acts must be like that of our Lord Jesus Christ and king David.

The grace of God shall avail for you in particular in Jesus name.

The good Lord shall help you in particular in Jesus name.

The proud have forged a lie [ falsehood ] against me: but I will keep thy precepts, statues and decrees with my whole heart. – Psalms 119:69
