Psalm 58-65 21st Century King James Version (KJ21)
58 Do ye indeed speak righteousness, O congregation? Do ye judge uprightly, O ye sons of men?
2 Yea, in heart ye work wickedness; ye weigh out violence by your hands in the earth.
3 The wicked are estranged from the womb; they go astray as soon as they are born, speaking lies.
4 Their poison is like the poison of a serpent; they are like the deaf adder that stoppeth her ear,
5 which will not hearken to the voice of charmers, charm they ever so wisely.
6 Break their teeth, O God, in their mouth; break out the great teeth of the young lions, O Lord!
7 Let them melt away as waters which run continually; when he bendeth his bow to shoot his arrows, let them be as cut in pieces.
8 As a snail which melteth, let every one of them pass away like the untimely birth of a woman, that they may not see the sun.
9 Before your pots can feel the thorns, He shall take them away as with a whirlwind, both living, and in His wrath.
10 The righteous shall rejoice when he seeth the vengeance; he shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked,
11 so that a man shall say, “Verily there is a reward for the righteous; verily He is a God that judgeth on the earth.”
59 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.
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 though I am not at 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 hold all the heathen in derision.
9 Because of his strength, I will wait upon Thee; for God is my defense.
10 The God of my mercy shall go before me; God shall let me see my desire upon mine enemies.
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 the 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 grumble if they be not satisfied.
16 But I will sing of Thy power, yea, I will sing aloud of Thy mercy in the morning; for Thou hast been my defense and refuge in the day of my trouble.
17 Unto Thee, O my Strength, will I sing; for God is my defense, and the God of my mercy.
60 O God, Thou hast cast us off, Thou hast scattered us, Thou hast been displeased; O, turn Thyself to us again!
2 Thou hast made the earth to tremble, Thou hast broken it; heal the breaches thereof, for it shaketh.
3 Thou hast shown Thy people hard things; Thou hast made us to drink the wine of astonishment.
4 Thou hast given a banner to them that fear Thee, that it may be displayed because of the truth. Selah
5 That Thy beloved may be delivered, save with Thy right hand and hear me!
6 God hath spoken in His holiness: “I will rejoice; I will divide Shechem and portion out the Valley of Succoth.
7 Gilead is Mine, and Manasseh is Mine; Ephraim also is the strength of Mine head; Judah is My lawgiver.
8 Moab is My washpot; over Edom will I cast out My shoe; Philistia, triumph thou because of Me.”
9 Who will bring me into the stronghold city? Who will lead me into Edom?
10 Will not Thou, O God, who hadst cast us off, and Thou, O God, who didst not go out with our armies?
11 Give us help from trouble, for vain is the help of man.
12 Through God we shall do valiantly, for He it is that shall tread down our enemies.
61 Hear my cry, O God; attend unto my prayer.
2 From the end of the earth will I cry unto Thee when my heart is overwhelmed; lead me to the rock that is higher than I.
3 For Thou hast been a shelter for me and a strong tower from the enemy.
4 I will abide in Thy tabernacle for ever; I will trust in the refuge of Thy wings. Selah
5 For Thou, O God, hast heard my vows; Thou hast given me the heritage of those that fear Thy name.
6 Thou wilt prolong the king’s life, and his years shall be as many generations.
7 He shall abide before God for ever; O prepare mercy and truth, that they may preserve him.
8 So will I sing praise unto Thy name for ever, that I may daily perform my vows.
62 Truly my soul waiteth upon God; from Him cometh my salvation.
2 He alone is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be greatly moved.
3 How long will ye conjure mischief against a man? Ye shall be slain, all of you; as a bulging wall shall ye be, and as a tottering fence.
4 They consult only to cast him down from his excellency, they delight in lies, they bless with their mouth, but they curse inwardly. Selah
5 My soul, wait thou only upon God, for my expectation is from Him.
6 He only is my rock and my salvation; He is my defense; I shall not be moved.
7 In God is my salvation and my glory; the rock of my strength and my refuge is in God.
8 Trust in Him at all times, ye people; pour out your heart before Him; God is a refuge for us. Selah
9 Surely men of low degree are vanity, and men of high degree are a lie; if weighed in the balance, they are altogether lighter than vanity.
10 Trust not in oppression, and put not vain hope in robbery; if riches increase, set not your heart upon them.
11 God hath spoken this once, twice have I heard this: that power belongeth unto God.
12 Also unto Thee, O Lord, belongeth mercy, for Thou renderest to every man according to his work.
63 O God, Thou art my God; early will I seek Thee. My soul thirsteth for Thee, my flesh longeth for Thee, in a dry and thirsty land where no water is,
2 to see Thy power and Thy glory as I have seen Thee in the sanctuary.
3 Because Thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise Thee.
4 Thus will I bless Thee while I live; I will lift up my hands in Thy name.
5 My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness and my mouth shall praise Thee with joyful lips,
6 when I remember Thee upon my bed, and meditate on Thee in the night watches.
7 Because Thou hast been my help, therefore in the shadow of Thy wings will I rejoice.
8 My soul followeth hard after Thee; Thy right hand upholdeth me.
9 But those that seek my soul to destroy it shall go into the lower parts of the earth.
10 They shall fall by the sword; they shall be a portion for foxes.
11 But the king shall rejoice in God; every one that sweareth by Him shall glory, but the mouth of them that speak lies shall be stopped.
64 Hear my voice, O God, in my prayer; preserve my life from fear of the enemy.
2 Hide me from the secret counsel of the wicked, from the insurrection of the workers of iniquity,
3 who whet their tongue like a sword and bend their bows to shoot their arrows, even bitter words,
4 that they may shoot in secret at the perfect; suddenly do they shoot at him and fear not.
5 They encourage each other in an evil purpose; they commune in laying snares privily; they say, “Who shall see them?”
6 They search out iniquities, they conduct a diligent search; both the inward thought of every one of them, and the heart, is deep.
7 But God shall shoot at them with an arrow; suddenly shall they be wounded.
8 So shall they make their own tongue to fall upon themselves; all that see them shall flee away.
9 And all men shall fear and shall declare the work of God, for they shall wisely consider His doing.
10 The righteous shall be glad in the Lord and shall trust in Him, and all the upright in heart shall glory.
65 Praise waiteth for Thee, O God, in Zion; and unto Thee shall the vow be performed.
2 O Thou that hearest prayer, unto Thee shall all flesh come.
3 Iniquities prevail against me; as for our transgressions, Thou shalt purge them away.
4 Blessed is the man whom Thou choosest and causest to approach unto Thee, that he may dwell in Thy courts. We shall be satisfied with the goodness of Thy house, even of Thy holy temple.
5 By fearsome deeds of righteousness wilt Thou answer us, O God of our salvation, who art the confidence of all the ends of the earth and of them that are afar off upon the sea,
6 who by His strength setteth fast the mountains, being girded with power,
7 who stilleth the noise of the seas, the noise of their waves and the tumult of the people.
8 They also that dwell in the uttermost parts are afraid at Thy signs; Thou makest the outgoings of the morning and evening to rejoice.
9 Thou visitest the earth and waterest it; Thou greatly enrichest it with the river of God, which is full of water; Thou preparest them corn when Thou hast so provided it.
10 Thou waterest the ridges thereof abundantly, Thou settlest the furrows thereof; Thou makest it soft with showers, Thou blessest the sprouting thereof.
11 Thou crownest the year with Thy goodness, and Thy paths drip with fatness.
12 They drip upon the pastures of the wilderness, and the little hills rejoice on every side.
13 The pastures are clothed with flocks, the valleys also are covered over with corn. They shout for joy, they also sing.
