Psalms 59
New Living Translation
59[For the choir director: A psalm of David, regarding the time Saul sent soldiers to watch David’s house in order to kill him. To be sung to the tune “Do Not Destroy!”] Rescue me from my enemies, O God. Protect me from those who have come to destroy me.H5329H516H4387H1732H7586H7971H8104H1004H4191H5337H341H430H7682H6965 2Rescue me from these criminals; save me from these murderers.H5337H6466H205H3467H1818H582 3They have set an ambush for me. Fierce enemies are out there waiting, Lord, though I have not sinned or offended them.H693H5315H5794H1481H6588H2403H3068 4I have done nothing wrong, yet they prepare to attack me. Wake up! See what is happening and help me!H7323H3559H5771H5782H7125H7200 5O Lord God of Heaven’s Armies, the God of Israel, wake up and punish those hostile nations. Show no mercy to wicked traitors. InterludeH3068H430H6635H430H3478H6974H6485H1471H2603H205H898H5542 6They come out at night, snarling like vicious dogs as they prowl the streets.H7725H6153H1993H3611H5437H5892 7Listen to the filth that comes from their mouths; their words cut like swords. “After all, who can hear us?” they sneer.H5042H6310H2719H8193H8085 8But Lord, you laugh at them. You scoff at all the hostile nations.H3068H7832H1471H3932 9You are my strength; I wait for you to rescue me, for you, O God, are my fortress.H5797H8104H430H4869 10In his unfailing love, my God will stand with me. He will let me look down in triumph on all my enemies.H430H2617H6923H430H7200H8324 11Don’t kill them, for my people soon forget such lessons; stagger them with your power, and bring them to their knees, O Lord our shield.H2026H5971H7911H5128H2428H3381H136H4043 12Because of the sinful things they say, because of the evil that is on their lips, let them be captured by their pride, their curses, and their lies.H2403H6310H1697H8193H3920H1347H423H3585H5608 13Destroy them in your anger! Wipe them out completely! Then the whole world will know that God reigns in Israel. InterludeH3615H2534H3615H3045H430H4910H3290H657H776H5542 14My enemies come out at night, snarling like vicious dogs as they prowl the streets.H6153H7725H1993H3611H5437H5892 15They scavenge for food but go to sleep unsatisfied.H5128H5128H398H3885H7646 16But as for me, I will sing about your power. Each morning I will sing with joy about your unfailing love. For you have been my refuge, a place of safety when I am in distress.H7891H5797H7442H2617H1242H4869H4498H3117H6862 17O my Strength, to you I sing praises, for you, O God, are my refuge, the God who shows me unfailing love.H5797H2167H430H4869H430H2617
