Psalm 59
Brenton's Septuagint Translation Par ▾ 

Deliver Me from My Enemies

1(58:1) For the end. Destroy not: by David for a memorial, when Saul sent, and watched his house to kill him. Deliver me from mine enemies, O God; and ransom me from those that rise up against me.

2(58:2) Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloody men.

3(58:3) For, behold, they have hunted after my soul; violent men have set upon me: neither is it my iniquity, nor my sin, O Lord.

4(58:4) Without iniquity I ran and directed my course aright: awake to help me, and behold.

5(58:5) And thou, Lord God of hosts, the God of Israel, draw nigh to visit all the heathen; pity not any that work iniquity. Pause.

6(58:6) They shall return at evening, and hunger like a dog, and go round about the city.

7(58:7) Behold, they shall utter a voice with their mouth, and a sword is in their lips; for who, say they, has heard?

8(58:8) But thou, Lord, wilt laugh them to scorn; thou wilt utterly set at nought all the heathen.

9(58:9) I will keep my strength, looking to thee; for thou, O God, art my helper.

10(58:10) As for my God, his mercy shall go before me: my God will shew me vengeance on mine enemies.

11(58:11) Slay them not, lest they forget thy law; scatter them by thy power; and bring them down, O Lord, my defender.

12(58:12) For the sin of their mouth, and the word of their lips, let them be even taken in their pride.

13(58:13) And for their cursing and falsehood shall utter destruction be denounced: they shall fall by the wrath of utter destruction, and shall not be; so shall they know that the God of Jacob is Lord of the ends of the earth. Pause.

14(58:14) They shall return at evening, and be hungry as a dog, and go round about the city.

15(58:15) They shall be scattered hither and thither for meat; and if they be not satisfied, they shall even murmur.

16(58:16) But I will sing to thy strength, and in the morning will I exult in thy mercy; for thou hast been my supporter, and my refuge in the day of mine affliction.

17(58:17) Thou art my helper; to thee, my God, will I sing; thou art my supporter, O my God, and my mercy.
