Psalm 59:1-2 1599 Geneva Bible (GNV)

59 1 David being in great danger of Saul, who sent to slay him in his bed, prayeth unto God, 3 Declaring his innocency, and their fury, 5 Desiring God to destroy all those that sin of malicious wickedness. 11 Whom though he keep alive for a time to exercise his people, yet in the end he will consume them in his wrath, 13 That he may be known to be the God of Jacob to the end of the world. 16 For this he singeth praises to God assured of his mercies.

To him that excelleth. Destroy not. A Psalm of David, on [a]Michtam. When Saul sent and they did watch the house to kill him.

O my God, [b]deliver me from mine enemies; defend me from them that rise up against me.

Deliver me from the wicked doers, and save me from the bloody men.


  1. Psalm 59:1 Read Ps. 16.
  2. Psalm 59:1 Though his enemies were even at hand to destroy him, yet he assureth himself that God had ways now in hand to deliver him.
