Psalms 59

1Deliver me from my enemies, O my God. Set me on high from those who rise up against me. 2Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from the bloodthirsty men. 3For, lo, they lie in wait for my soul. The mighty gather themselves together against me, not for my transgression, nor for my sin, O Jehovah. 4They run and prepare themselves without my fault. Awake thou to help me, and behold. 5Even thou, O Jehovah God of hosts, the God of Israel, arise to visit all the nations. Be not merciful to any wicked transgressors. Selah. 6They return at evening. They howl like a dog, and go round about the city. 7Behold, they belch out with their mouth. Swords are in their lips, for they say, Who hears? 8But thou, O Jehovah, will laugh at them. Thou will have all the nations in derision. 9O my strength, I will give heed to thee, for God is my high tower. 10My God with his loving kindness will meet me. God will let me look upon my enemies. 11Kill them not, lest my people forget. Scatter them by thy power, and bring them down, O Lord our shield, 12for 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. 13Consume them in wrath, consume them, so that they shall be no more. And let them know that God rules in Jacob, to the ends of the earth. Selah. 14And at evening let them return, let them howl like a dog, and go round about the city. 15They shall wander up and down for food, and tarry all night if they be not satisfied. 16But I will sing of thy strength. Yea, I will sing aloud of thy loving kindness in the morning. For thou have been my high tower, and a refuge in the day of my distress. 17To thee, O my strength, I will sing praises. For God is my high tower, the God of my mercy.
