> Deliver me from my enemies, my God. Set me on high from those who rise up against me.
59:2 Deliver me from the workers of iniquity. Save me from the bloodthirsty men.
59:3 For, behold, they lie in wait for my soul. The mighty gather themselves together against me, Not for my disobedience, nor for my sin, Yahweh.
59:4 I have done no wrong, yet they are ready to attack me. Rise up, behold, and help me!
59:5 You, Yahweh God of hosts, the God of Israel, Rouse yourself to punish the nations. Show no mercy to the wicked traitors. Selah.
59:6 They return at evening, howling like dogs, And prowl around the city.
59:7 Behold, they spew with their mouth. Swords are in their lips, "For," they say, "who hears us?"
59:8 But you, Yahweh, laugh at them. You scoff at all the nations.
59:9 Oh, my Strength, I watch for you, For God is my high tower.
59:10 My God will go before me with his loving kindness. God will let me look at my enemies in triumph.
59:11 Don't kill them, or my people may forget. Scatter them by your power, and bring them down, Lord our shield.
59:12 For the sin of their mouth, and the words of their lips, Let them be caught in their pride, For the curses and lies which they utter.
59:13 Consume them in wrath. Consume them, and they will be no more. Let them know that God rules in Jacob, To the ends of the earth. Selah.
59:14 At evening let them return. Let them howl like a dog, and go around the city.
59:15 They shall wander up and down for food, And wait all night if they aren't satisfied.
59:16 But I will sing of your strength. Yes, I will sing aloud of your loving kindness in the morning. For you have been my high tower, A refuge in the day of my distress.
59:17 To you, my strength, I will sing praises. For God is my high tower, the God of my mercy.
