Psalm 59

59:1 To the Overseer. --`Destroy not,' by David. --A secret treasure, in Saul's sending, and they watch the house to put him to death. Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God, From my withstanders set me on high. 59:2 Deliver me from workers of iniquity, And from men of blood save me. 59:3 For, lo, they laid wait for my soul, Assembled against me are strong ones, Not my transgression nor my sin, O Jehovah. 59:4 Without punishment they run and prepare themselves, Stir up to meet me, and see. 59:5 And Thou, Jehovah, God of Hosts, God of Israel, Awake to inspect all the nations. Favour not any treacherous dealers of iniquity. Selah. 59:6 They turn back at evening, They make a noise like a dog, And go round about the city. 59:7 Lo, they belch out with their mouths, Swords [are] in their lips, for `Who heareth'  59:8 And Thou, O Jehovah dost laugh at them, Thou dost mock at all the nations. 59:9 O my Strength, unto Thee I take heed, For God [is] my tower--the God of my kindness. 59:10 God doth go before me, He causeth me to look on mine enemies. 59:11 Slay them not, lest my people forget, Shake them by Thy strength, And bring them down, O Lord our shield. 59:12 The sin of their mouth [is] a word of their lips, And they are captured in their pride, And from the curse and lying they recount. 59:13 Consume in fury, consume and they are not, And they know that God is ruling in Jacob, To the ends of the earth. Selah. 59:14 And they turn back at evening, They make a noise like a dog, And they go round about the city. 59:15 They--they wander for food, If they are not satisfied--then they murmur. 59:16 And I--I sing [of] Thy strength, And I sing at morn [of] Thy kindness, For thou hast been a tower to me, And a refuge for me in a day of adversity. 59:17 O my Strength, unto Thee I sing praise, For God [is] my tower, the God of my kindness!
