Psalm 59

Psalm 59

To the chief Musician, ||*Al-taschith, Michtam of David; when Saul sent, and they watched the house to kill him.

aDeliver me from mine enemies, O my God:

Defend me from abthem that rise up against me.

Deliver me from bbthe workers of iniquity,

And save me from cbloody men.

For, lo, they dlie in wait for my soul:

The mighty eare gathered against me;

fNot for my transgression, nor for my sin, O Lord.

They run and prepare themselves fwithout my fault:

gAwake to help me, and behold.

Thou therefore, hO Lord God of hosts, the God of Israel,

gAwake to visit all the heathen:

Be not merciful to any wicked itransgressors. Selah.

jThey return at evening:

They make a noise like a dog,

And go round about the city.

Behold, they kbelch out with their mouth:

lSwords are in their lips:

For mwho, say they, doth hear?

But thou, O Lord, nshalt laugh at them;

Thou shalt nhave all the heathen in derision.

Because of his strength will I wait upon thee:

For God is my defence.

10  The God of my mercy shall oprevent me:

God shall let me psee my desire upon mine enemies.

11  Slay them not, lest my people forget:

qScatter them by thy power;

And rbring them down, O Lord sour shield.

12  For tthe sin of their mouth and the words of their lips

Let them even be taken in their pride:

And for cursing and lying which they speak.

13  Consume them in wrath, consume them, that they may not be:

And ulet them know that God ruleth in Jacob

Unto xthe ends of the earth. Selah.

14  And yat evening let them return;

And let them make a noise like a dog,

And go round about the city.

15  Let them zwander up and down for meat,

||And agrudge if they be not satisfied.

16  But I will sing of thy power;

Yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning:

For thou hast been my bdefence

And crefuge in the day dof my trouble.

17  Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing:

For God is my bdefence, and ethe God of my mercy.
