Negative self-fulfillment

Along the lines of wish fulfillment and self-fulfilling prophecy, these words from Psalm 109 are powerful (taken from The Book of Common Prayer).

He loved cursing,
let it come upon him;
he took no delight in blessing,
let it depart from him.
He put on cursing like a garment,
let it soak into his body like water
and into his bones like oil . . .

Psalm 109:16-17
