Ps 59:1Deliver me from my enemies, O my God; / Set me on high, secure from those who rise up against me.

Ps 59:2Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, / And save me from men of bloodshed.

Ps 59:3For behold, they lie in wait for my soul; / The strong gather themselves against me. / Not because of any transgression of mine nor because of any sin of mine, O Jehovah,

Ps 59:4Not for any fault of mine, they run and ready themselves; / Awake to meet me, and see.

Ps 59:5Indeed You, O Jehovah, God of hosts, God of Israel, / Arise to punish all the nations; / Have no mercy upon any who treacherously commit iniquity. Selah

Ps 59:6They return in the evening; / They growl like a dog / And go around the city.

Ps 59:7Behold, they belch forth with their mouth; / Swords are in their lips; / For, Who, they say, hears?

Ps 59:8But You, O Jehovah, laugh at them; / You have all the nations in derision.

Ps 59:9O my strength, I will watch for You; / For God is my high retreat.

Ps 59:10My God in His lovingkindness will meet me; / God will let me look triumphantly upon those who lie in wait for me.

Ps 59:11Do not slay them, lest my people forget; / Scatter them by Your power, and bring them down, / O Lord our shield.

Ps 59:12For the sin of their mouth, / For the word of their lips, / Let them even be taken in their arrogance, / And because of the cursing and the lying that they speak.

Ps 59:13Consume them in wrath; consume them so that they are no more; / And men will know that God rules in Jacob / Unto the ends of the earth. Selah

Ps 59:14They return in the evening; / They growl like a dog / And go around the city.

Ps 59:15They wander about for food; / And if they are not filled, they linger.

Ps 59:16But I will sing of Your strength; / And I will joyfully sing of Your lovingkindness in the morning. / For You have been my high retreat / And a refuge in the day of my distress.

Ps 59:17O my strength, unto You I will sing psalms, / For God is my high retreat, / My God of lovingkindness.
