Rotherham's Emphasized Bible

Psalms 55

David in his prayer complaineth of his fearful case.

Psalms 55:1 {To the Chief Musician: with stringed Instruments. A Psalm of Instruction, of David.} Give ear, O God, to my prayer, And do not hide thyself from my supplication: Psalms 55:2 Attend unto me, and answer me, I may ramble in my complaining, And be driven to and fro— Psalms 55:3 Because of the noise of the enemy, By reason of the oppression of the lawless one, For they would let trouble drop upon me, And, in anger, would they entrap me. Psalms 55:4 My heart, would writhe within me, And, the terrors of Death, have fallen upon me: Psalms 55:5 Fear and trembling, would enter me, And there would have overwhelmed me—a horror! Psalms 55:6 Then I said—Oh that there were given me a pinion, like a dove, I would fly away and be at rest: Psalms 55:7 Lo! I would take a distant flight, I would tarry in the wilderness. [Selah.] Psalms 55:8 I would hasten mine escape, From rushing wind, from storm.

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

Psalms 55:9 Confuse, O My Lord, divide their speech, For I have seen violence and contention in the city; Psalms 55:10 Day and night, they go round her, upon her walls, And, trouble and misery, are in her midst; Psalms 55:11 Engulfing ruin, is in her midst, And there depart not from her broadway, oppression and deceit. Psalms 55:12 For it is, not an enemy, that reproacheth me, Or I could bear it,—Not one that hath hated me, who, against me, hath magnified himself, Or I might hide myself from him; Psalms 55:13 But it is, thou, a man esteemed as mine equal, mine associate, and mine acquaintance; Psalms 55:14 So that together have we been wont to find sweetness in counsel, In the house of God, used we to walk in the throng. Psalms 55:15 Desolations on them! Let them go down into hades alive, For, wicked doings, are at home within them.

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

Psalms 55:16 I, unto God, will cry,—And, Yahweh, will save me. Psalms 55:17 At evening and morning and high noon, have I been wont to lament and complain, And he hath heard my voice! Psalms 55:18 He hath completely redeemed my soul, out of the attack upon me, For, in multitudes, were they [in conflict] with me. Psalms 55:19 GOD will hear, Yea He will humble them who aforetime sat [enthroned]. [Selah.] With whom are no changings, Neither have they revered God. Psalms 55:20 He hath thrust forth his hands, against them he was wont to salute, he hath violated his covenant; Psalms 55:21 Smoother than curds, were [the words of] his mouth, But, war, was [in] his heart,—Softer his words than oil, Yet, they, were drawn swords! Psalms 55:22 Cast upon Yahweh thy lot, and, he, will sustain thee: He will not suffer, to times age-abiding, the righteous one to be shaken. Psalms 55:23 But, thou, O God, wilt bring them down to the pit of destruction, Men of bloodshed and deceit, shall not live out half their days; But, I, will trust in thee.
