Psalms Chapter 59 | Parsha:

1For the leader; al tashheth. Of David. A michtam; when Saul sent men to watch his house in order to put him to death.

2Save me from my enemies, O my God;
secure me against my assailants.

3Save me from evildoers;
deliver me from murderers.

4For see, they lie in wait for me;
fierce men plot against me
for no offense of mine,
for no transgression, O Lord;

5for no guilt of mine
do they rush to array themselves against me.
Look, rouse Yourself on my behalf!

6You, O Lord God of hosts,
God of Israel,
bestir Yourself to bring all nations to account;
have no mercy on any treacherous villain. Selah.

7They come each evening growling like dogs,
roaming the city.

8They rave with their mouths,
sharp words are on their lips;
[they think,] “Who hears?”

9But You, O Lord, laugh at them;
You mock all the nations.

10O my strength, I wait for You;
for God is my haven.

11My faithful God will come to aid me;
God will let me gloat over my watchful foes.

12Do not kill them lest my people be unmindful;
with Your power make wanderers of them;
bring them low, O our shield, the Lord,

13because of their sinful mouths,
the words on their lips.
Let them be trapped by their pride,
and by the imprecations and lies they utter.

14In Your fury put an end to them;
put an end to them that they be no more;
that it may be known to the ends of the earth
that God does rule over Jacob. Selah.

15They come each evening growling like dogs,
roaming the city.

16They wander in search of food;
and whine if they are not satisfied.

17But I will sing of Your strength,
extol each morning Your faithfulness;
for You have been my haven,
a refuge in time of trouble.

18O my strength, to You I sing hymns;
for God is my haven, my faithful God.
