Psalm 59

Deliver me from my enemies, O God :
 lift me to safety from those that rise against me;
O deliver me from the evildoers :
 and save me from bloodthirsty men.
For they lie in wait for my life :
 savage men stir up violence against me.
Not for my sin or my transgression, O Lord,
   not for any evil I have done :
 do they run and take up position against me.
Arise to meet me, and see :
 you that are Lord of hosts and God of Israel.
[Awake to punish all the nations :
 have no mercy on those that so treacherously do wrong.]
They return every evening, they howl like dogs :
 they prowl around the city.
Look how their mouths slaver :
 swords strike from their lips, for they say ‘Who will hear it?’
But you, O Lord, will laugh them to scorn :
 you will deride all the nations.
I will look to you, O my strength :
 for God is my strong tower.
My God in his steadfastness will come to meet me :
 God will show me the downfall of my enemies.
Slay them not, O Lord, lest my people forget :
 but make them stagger by your power, and bring them down.
Give them over to punishment for the sin of their mouths,
[For the curses and lies that they have uttered,
   O consume them in your wrath :
 consume them, till they are no more;]
That men may know that God rules over Jacob :
 even to the ends of the earth.
They return every evening, they howl like dogs :
 they prowl around the city.
They roam here and there looking for food :
 and growl if they are not filled.
But I will sing of your might :
 I will sing aloud each morning of your goodness.
For you have been my strong tower :
 and a sure refuge in the day of my distress.
I will sing your praises, O my strength :
 for God is my strong tower.
