Psalms 55
New Living Translation
55[For the choir director: A psalm of David, to be accompanied by stringed instruments.] Listen to my prayer, O God. Do not ignore my cry for help!H5329H5058H4905H1732H238H8605H430H5956H8467 2Please listen and answer me, for I am overwhelmed by my troubles.H7181H6030H7300H7879H1949 3My enemies shout at me, making loud and wicked threats. They bring trouble on me and angrily hunt me down.H6963H341H6440H6125H7563H4131H205H639H7852 4My heart pounds in my chest. The terror of death assaults me.H3820H2342H7130H367H4194H5307 5Fear and trembling overwhelm me, and I can’t stop shaking.H3374H7461H935H6427H3680 6Oh, that I had wings like a dove; then I would fly away and rest!H559H5414H83H3123H5774H7931 7I would fly far away to the quiet of the wilderness. InterludeH5074H7368H3885H4057H5542 8How quickly I would escape—far from this wild storm of hatred.H2363H4655H7307H5584H5591 9Confuse them, Lord, and frustrate their plans, for I see violence and conflict in the city.H1104H136H6385H3956H7200H2555H7379H5892 10Its walls are patrolled day and night against invaders, but the real danger is wickedness within the city.H3119H3915H5437H2346H205H5999H7130 11Everything is falling apart; threats and cheating are rampant in the streets.H1942H7130H8496H4820H4185H7339 12It is not an enemy who taunts me—I could bear that. It is not my foes who so arrogantly insult me—I could have hidden from them.H341H2778H5375H8130H1431H5641 13Instead, it is you—my equal, my companion and close friend.H582H6187H441H3045 14What good fellowship we once enjoyed as we walked together to the house of God.H4985H5475H3162H1980H1004H430H7285 15Let death stalk my enemies; let the grave swallow them alive, for evil makes its home within them.H4194H5377H3451H3381H2416H7585H7451H4033H7130 16But I will call on God, and the Lord will rescue me.H7121H430H3068H3467 17Morning, noon, and night I cry out in my distress, and the Lord hears my voice.H6153H1242H6672H7878H1993H8085H6963 18He ransoms me and keeps me safe from the battle waged against me, though many still oppose me.H6299H5315H7965H7128H7227 19God, who has ruled forever, will hear me and humble them. Interlude For my enemies refuse to change their ways; they do not fear God.H410H8085H6030H3427H6924H5542H2487H3372H430 20As for my companion, he betrayed his friends; he broke his promises.H7971H3027H7965H2490H1285 21His words are as smooth as butter, but in his heart is war. His words are as soothing as lotion, but underneath are daggers!H6310H2505H4260H7128H3820H1697H7401H8081H6609 22Give your burdens to the Lord, and he will take care of you. He will not permit the godly to slip and fall.H7993H3053H3068H3557H5769H5414H6662H4131 23But you, O God, will send the wicked down to the pit of destruction. Murderers and liars will die young, but I am trusting you to save me.H430H3381H875H7845H1818H4820H582H2673H3117H982
