PS 59:2 \59:1\To the chief Musician, Al-taschith, Michtam of David; when Saul sent, and they watched the house to kill him. Deliver me from my enemies, O my God: defend me from them that rise up against me.
PS 59:3 \59:2\Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloody men.
PS 59:4 \59:3\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.
PS 59:5 \59:4\They run and prepare themselves without my fault: awake to help me, and behold.
PS 59:6 \59:5\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.
PS 59:7 \59:6\They return at evening: they make a noise like a dog, and go about the city.
PS 59:8 \59:7\Behold, they belch out with their mouth: swords are in their lips: for who, say they, doth hear?
PS 59:9 \59:8\But thou, O LORD, shalt laugh at them; thou shalt have all the heathen in derision.
PS 59:10 \59:9\Because of his strength will I wait upon thee: for God is my defense.
PS 59:11 \59:10\The God of my mercy will succor me: God will let me see my desire upon my enemies.
PS 59:12 \59:11\Slay them not, lest my people forget: scatter them by thy power; and bring them down, O Lord our shield.
PS 59:13 \59:12\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.
PS 59:14 \59:13\Consume them in wrath, consume them, that they may not be: and let them know that God ruleth in Jacob to the ends of the earth. Selah.
PS 59:15 \59:14\And at evening let them return; and let them make a noise like a dog, and go about the city.
PS 59:16 \59:15\Let them wander up and down for food, and grudge if they are not satisfied.
PS 59:17 \59:16\But I will sing of thy power; yes, I will sing aloud of thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast been my defense and refuge in the day of my trouble.
PS 59:18 \59:17\To thee, O my strength, will I sing: for God is my defense, and the God of my mercy.
