Book of Psalms
Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God: defend me
from them that rise up against me.
59:2 Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and
save me from bloody men.
59:3 For, lo, they lie in wait for my soul: the
mighty are gathered against me; not for my
transgression, nor for my sin, O LORD.
59:4 They run and prepare themselves without my
fault: awake to help me, and behold.
59:5 Thou therefore, O LORD God of hosts, the God of
Israel, awake to visit all the heathen: be not
merciful to any wicked transgressors. Selah.
59:6 They return at evening: they make a noise like
a dog, and go round about the city.
59:7 Behold, they belch out with their mouth: swords
are in their lips: for who, say they, doth hear?
59:8 But thou, O LORD, shalt laugh at them; thou
shalt have all the heathen in derision.
59:9 Because of his strength will I wait upon thee:
for God is my defence.
59:10 The God of my mercy shall prevent me: God
shall let me see my desire upon mine enemies.
59:11 Slay them not, lest my people forget: scatter
them by thy power; and bring them down, O Lord our
59:12 For the 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.
59:13 Consume them in wrath, consume them, that they
may not be: and let them know that God ruleth in
Jacob unto the ends of the earth. Selah.
59:14 And at evening let them return; and let them
make a noise like a dog, and go round about the
59:15 Let them wander up and down for meat, and
grudge if they be not satisfied.
59:16 But I will sing of thy power; yea, I will sing
aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast
been my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble.
59:17 Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing: for God
is my defence, and the God of my mercy.
