Psalm 59*

As Alden

To the chief Musician, Altaschith, Michtam of David;
when Saul sent, and they watched the house to kill him.

A. 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.

B. 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.

C. 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.

B’. 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.

A’. 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.
