Psalm 59

King James Version (KJV)

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.
