Psalm 59Darby Translation (DARBY)

To the chief Musician. 'Destroy not.' Of David. Michtam; when Saul sent, and they watched the house to kill him.

59 Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God; secure me on high from them that rise up against me.

Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from men of blood.

For behold, they lie in wait for my soul; strong ones are gathered against me: not for my transgression, nor for my sin, O Jehovah.

They run and prepare themselves without [my] fault: awake to meet me, and behold.

Yea, do thou, Jehovah, the God of hosts, the God of Israel, arise to visit all the nations: be not gracious to any plotters of iniquity. Selah.

They return in the evening; they howl like a dog, and go round about the city:

Behold, they belch out with their mouth; swords are in their lips: for who [say they] doth hear?

But thou, Jehovah, wilt laugh at them; thou wilt have all the nations in derision.

Their strength! … I will take heed to thee; for God is my high fortress.

10 God, whose loving-kindness will come to meet me,—God shall let me see [my desire] upon mine enemies.

11 Slay them not, lest my people forget; by thy power make them wander, and bring them down, O Lord, our shield.

12 [Because of] the sin of their mouth, the word of their lips, let them even be taken in their pride; and because of cursing and lying which they speak.

13 Make an end in wrath, make an end, that they may be no more; that they may know that God ruleth in Jacob, unto the ends of the earth. Selah.

14 And in the evening they shall return, they shall howl like a dog, and go round about the city.

15 They shall wander about for meat, and stay all night if they be not satisfied.

16 But as for me, I will sing of thy strength; yea, I will sing aloud of thy loving-kindness in the morning; for thou hast been to me a high fortress, and a refuge in the day of my trouble.

17 Unto thee, my strength, will I sing psalms; for God is my high fortress, the God of my mercy.
