Psalm 59: Deliver Me From Mine Enemies, O My God - Poem by King David of Israel

1 Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God:
defend me from them that rise up against me.

2 Deliver me from the workers of iniquity,
and save me from bloody men.

3 For, lo, they lie in wait for my soul:
the mighty are gathered against me;
not for my transgression, nor for my sin, O LORD.

4 They run and prepare themselves without my fault:
awake to help me, and behold.

5 Thou therefore, O LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel,
awake to visit all the heathen:
be not merciful to any wicked transgressors. Selah.

6 They return at evening:
they make a noise like a dog,
and go round about the city.

7 Behold, they belch out with their mouth:
swords are in their lips: for who, say they, doth hear?

8 But thou, O LORD, shalt laugh at them;
thou shalt have all the heathen in derision.

9 Because of his strength will I wait upon thee:
for God is my defence.

10 The God of my mercy shall prevent me:
God shall let me see my desire upon mine enemies.

11 Slay them not, lest my people forget:
scatter them by thy power;
and bring them down, O Lord our shield.

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.

13 Consume them in wrath, consume them,
that they may not be:
and let them know that God ruleth in Jacob
unto the ends of the earth. Selah.

14 And at evening let them return;
and let them make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city.

15 Let them wander up and down for meat,
and grudge if they be not satisfied.

16 But I will sing of thy power;
yea, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning:
for thou hast been my defence
and refuge in the day of my trouble.

17 Unto thee, O my strength, will I sing:
for God is my defence, and the God of my mercy.
