Psalms 55

David in his prayer complaineth of his fearful case.

Psalms 55:1 {To the chiefe musician on Neginoth, Maschil. A [Psalme] of Dauid.} Giue eare to my prayer, O God: and hide not thy selfe from my supplication. Psalms 55:2 Attend vnto me, and heare me: I mourne in my complaint, and make a noise. Psalms 55:3 Because of the voyce of the enemie, because of the oppression of the wicked: for they cast iniquitie vpon me, and in wrath they hate me. Psalms 55:4 My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrours of death are fallen vpon me. Psalms 55:5 Fearefulnesse and trembling are come vpon me, and horrour hath ouerwhelmed me. Psalms 55:6 And I said, O that I had wings like a doue; [for then] would I flee away and be at rest. Psalms 55:7 Loe, [then] would I wander farre off, [and] remaine in the wildernesse. Selah. Psalms 55:8 I would hasten my escape from the windie storme, [and] tempest.

He prayeth against his enemies, of whose wickedness and treachery he complaineth.

Psalms 55:9 Destroy, O Lord, [and] diuide their tongues: for I haue seene violence and strife in the citie. Psalms 55:10 Day and night they goe about it vpon the walles thereof: mischiefe also and sorrow [are] in the midst of it. Psalms 55:11 Wickednesse [is] in the midst thereof: deceite and guile depart not from her streets. Psalms 55:12 For [it was] not an enemie [that] reproached me, then I could haue borne [it], neither [was it] hee that hated me, that did magnifie [himselfe] against me, then I would haue hid my selfe from him. Psalms 55:13 But [it was] thou, a man, mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance. Psalms 55:14 Wee tooke sweet counsell together, [and] walked vnto the house of God in companie. Psalms 55:15 Let death seaze vpon them, and let them goe downe quicke into hell: for wickednes [is] in their dwellings, [and] among them.

He comforteth himself in God's preservation of him, and confusion of his enemies.

Psalms 55:16 As for me, I will call vpon God: and the LORD shall saue me. Psalms 55:17 Euening and morning, and at noone will I pray, and crie aloud: and he shall heare my voyce. Psalms 55:18 He hath deliuered my soule in peace from the battell that was against me: for there were many with me. Psalms 55:19 God shall heare and afflict them, euen he that abideth of old, Selah: because they [haue] no changes, therefore they feare not God. Psalms 55:20 He hath put foorth his handes against such as be at peace with him: he hath broken his couenant. Psalms 55:21 [The words] of his mouth were smoother then butter, but warre [was] in his heart: his words were softer then oyle, yet [were] they drawen swords. Psalms 55:22 Cast thy burden vpon the LORD, and he shall sustaine thee: hee shall neuer suffer the righteous to bee moued. Psalms 55:23 But thou, O God, shalt bring them downe into the pit of destruction: Bloody and deceitfull men shall not liue out halfe their dayes, but I will trust in thee.
