Psalms 59

David prayeth to be delivered from his enemies.

Psalms 59:1 {For the Chief Musician; [set to] Al-tashheth. [A Psalm] of David. Michtam; when Saul sent, and they watched the house to kill him.} Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God: Set me on high from them that rise up against me. Psalms 59:2 Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, And save me from the bloodthirsty men. Psalms 59:3 For, 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. Psalms 59:4 They run and prepare themselves without [my] fault: Awake thou to help me, and behold. Psalms 59:5 Even thou, O Jehovah God of hosts, the God of Israel, Arise to visit all the nations: Be not merciful to any wicked transgressors. Selah.

He complaineth of their cruelty.

Psalms 59:6 They return at evening, they howl like a dog, And go round about the city. Psalms 59:7 Behold, they belch out with their mouth; Swords are in their lips: For who, [say they], doth hear?

He trusteth in God.

Psalms 59:8 But thou, O Jehovah, wilt laugh at them; Thou wilt have all the nations in derision. Psalms 59:9 [Because of] his strength I will give heed unto thee; For God is my high tower. Psalms 59:10 My God with his lovingkindness will meet me: God will let me see [my desire] upon mine enemies.

He prayeth against them.

Psalms 59:11 Slay them not, lest my people forget: Scatter them by thy power, and bring them down, O Lord our shield. Psalms 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. Psalms 59:13 Consume them in wrath, consume them, so that they shall be no more: And let them know that God ruleth in Jacob, Unto the ends of the earth. Selah. Psalms 59:14 And at evening let them return, let them howl like a dog, And go round about the city. Psalms 59:15 They shall wander up and down for food, And tarry all night if they be not satisfied.

He praiseth God.

Psalms 59:16 But I will sing of thy strength; Yea, I will sing aloud of thy lovingkindness in the morning: For thou hast been my high tower, And a refuge in the day of my distress. Psalms 59:17 Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing praises: For God is my high tower, the God of my mercy.
