Psalms 59

David prayeth to be delivered from his enemies.

Psalms 59:1 {To him that excelleth. Destroy not. A Psalme of Dauid on Michtam. When Saul sent and they did watch the house to kill him.} O my God, deliuer mee from mine enemies: defend me fro them that rise vp against me. Psalms 59:2 Deliuer me from the wicked doers, and saue me from the bloody men. Psalms 59:3 For loe, they haue layd waite for my soule: the mightie men are gathered against me, not for mine offence, nor for my sinne, O Lord. Psalms 59:4 They runne and prepare themselues without a fault on my part: arise therefore to assist me, and beholde. Psalms 59:5 Euen thou, O Lorde God of hostes, O God of Israel awake to visit all the heathen, and be not merciful vnto all that transgresse maliciously. Selah.

He complaineth of their cruelty.

Psalms 59:6 They goe to and fro in the euening: they barke like dogs, and goe about the citie. Psalms 59:7 Behold, they brag in their talke, & swords are in their lips: for, Who, say they, doeth heare?

He trusteth in God.

Psalms 59:8 But thou, O Lord, shalt haue them in derision, and thou shalt laugh at all the heathen. Psalms 59:9 He is strong: but I will waite vpon thee: for God is my defence. Psalms 59:10 My mercifull God will preuent me: God wil let me see my desire vpon mine enemies.

He prayeth against them.

Psalms 59:11 Slay them not, least my people forget it: but scatter them abroad by thy power, and put them downe, O Lord our shield, Psalms 59:12 For the sinne of their mouth, and the words of their lips: and let them be taken in their pride, euen for their periurie and lies, that they speake. Psalms 59:13 Consume them in thy wrath: consume them that they be no more: and let them knowe that God ruleth in Iaakob, euen vnto the ends of the world. Selah. Psalms 59:14 And in the euening they shall go to and fro, and barke like dogs, and go about the citie. Psalms 59:15 They shall runne here and there for meate: and surely they shall not be satisfied, though they tary all night.

He praiseth God.

Psalms 59:16 But I wil sing of thy power, & will prayse thy mercy in the morning: for thou hast bene my defence and refuge in the day of my trouble. Psalms 59:17 Vnto thee, O my Strength, wil I sing: for God is my defence, and my mercifull God.
