Psalm 59 (WEBP)

[1] Deliver me from my enemies, my God. Set me on high from those who rise up against me.
[2] Deliver me from the workers of iniquity. Save me from the bloodthirsty men.
[3] For, behold, they lie in wait for my soul. The mighty gather themselves together against me, not for my disobedience, nor for my sin, Yahweh.
[4] I have done no wrong, yet they are ready to attack me. Rise up, behold, and help me!
[5] You, Yahweh God of Armies, the God of Israel, rouse yourself to punish the nations. Show no mercy to the wicked traitors. Selah.
[6] They return at evening, howling like dogs, and prowl around the city.
[7] Behold, they spew with their mouth. Swords are in their lips, “For”, they say, “who hears us?”
[8] But you, Yahweh, laugh at them. You scoff at all the nations.
[9] Oh, my Strength, I watch for you, for God is my high tower.
[10] My God will go before me with his loving kindness. God will let me look at my enemies in triumph.
[11] Don’t kill them, or my people may forget. Scatter them by your power, and bring them down, Lord our shield.
[12] For the sin of their mouth, and the words of their lips, let them be caught in their pride, for the curses and lies which they utter.
[13] Consume them in wrath. Consume them, and they will be no more. Let them know that God rules in Jacob, to the ends of the earth. Selah.
[14] At evening let them return. Let them howl like a dog, and go around the city.
[15] They shall wander up and down for food, and wait all night if they aren’t satisfied.
[16] But I will sing of your strength. Yes, I will sing aloud of your loving kindness in the morning. For you have been my high tower, a refuge in the day of my distress.
[17] To you, my strength, I will sing praises. For God is my high tower, the God of my mercy.

Psalm 59 (KJVS)

[1] «To the chief Musician H5329 (8764), Altaschith H516 (8686), Michtam H4387 of David H1732; when Saul H7586 sent H7971 (8800), and they watched H8104 (8799) the house H1004 to kill him H4191 (8687).» Deliver H5337 (8685) me from mine enemies H341 (8802), O my God H430: defend H7682 (8762) me from them that rise up H6965 (8693) against me.
[2] Deliver H5337 (8685) me from the workers H6466 (8802) of iniquity H205, and save H3467 (8685) me from bloody H1818 men H582.
[3] For, lo, they lie in wait H693 (8804) for my soul H5315: the mighty H5794 are gathered H1481 (8799) against me; not [for] my transgression H6588, nor [for] my sin H2403, O LORD H3068.
[4] They run H7323 (8799) and prepare H3559 (8709) themselves without [my] fault H5771: awake H5782 (8798) to help H7125 (8800) me, and behold H7200 (8798).
[5] Thou therefore, O LORD H3068 God H430 of hosts H6635, the God H430 of Israel H3478, awake H6974 (8685) to visit H6485 (8800) all the heathen H1471: be not merciful H2603 (8799) to any wicked H205 transgressors H898 (8802). Selah H5542.
[6] They return H7725 (8799) at evening H6153: they make a noise H1993 (8799) like a dog H3611, and go round about H5437 (8779) the city H5892.
[7] Behold, they belch out H5042 (8686) with their mouth H6310: swords H2719 [are] in their lips H8193: for who, [say they], doth hear H8085 (8802)?
[8] But thou, O LORD H3068, shalt laugh H7832 (8799) at them; thou shalt have all the heathen H1471 in derision H3932 (8799).
[9] [Because of] his strength H5797 will I wait H8104 (8799) upon thee: for God H430 [is] my defence H4869.
[10] The God H430 of my mercy H2617 shall prevent H6923 (8762) me: God H430 shall let me see H7200 (8686) [my desire] upon mine enemies H8324 (8802).
[11] Slay H2026 (8799) them not, lest my people H5971 forget H7911 (8799): scatter H5128 (8685) them by thy power H2428; and bring them down H3381 (8685), O Lord H136 our shield H4043.
[12] [For] the sin H2403 of their mouth H6310 [and] the words H1697 of their lips H8193 let them even be taken H3920 (8735) in their pride H1347: and for cursing H423 and lying H3585 [which] they speak H5608 (8762).
[13] Consume H3615 (8761) [them] in wrath H2534, consume H3615 (8761) [them], that they [may] not [be]: and let them know H3045 (8799) that God H430 ruleth H4910 (8802) in Jacob H3290 unto the ends H657 of the earth H776. Selah H5542.
[14] And at evening H6153 let them return H7725 (8799); [and] let them make a noise H1993 (8799) like a dog H3611, and go round about H5437 (8779) the city H5892.
[15] Let them wander up and down H5128 (8686) (8675) H5128 (8799) for meat H398 (8800), and grudge H3885 (8799) if they be not satisfied H7646 (8799).
[16] But I will sing H7891 (8799) of thy power H5797; yea, I will sing aloud H7442 (8762) of thy mercy H2617 in the morning H1242: for thou hast been my defence H4869 and refuge H4498 in the day H3117 of my trouble H6862.
[17] Unto thee, O my strength H5797, will I sing H2167 (8762): for God H430 [is] my defence H4869, [and] the God H430 of my mercy H2617.

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 59 (YLT)

[1] Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God, From my withstanders set me on high.
[2] Deliver me from workers of iniquity, And from men of blood save me.
[3] For, lo, they laid wait for my soul, Assembled against me are strong ones, Not my transgression nor my sin, O Jehovah.
[4] Without punishment they run and prepare themselves, Stir up to meet me, and see.
[5] And Thou, Jehovah, God of Hosts, God of Israel, Awake to inspect all the nations. Favour not any treacherous dealers of iniquity. Selah.
[6] They turn back at evening, They make a noise like a dog, And go round about the city.
[7] Lo, they belch out with their mouths, Swords are in their lips, for ‘Who heareth?’
[8] And Thou, O Jehovah dost laugh at them, Thou dost mock at all the nations.
[9] O my Strength, unto Thee I take heed, For God is my tower-the God of my kindness.
[10] God doth go before me, He causeth me to look on mine enemies.
[11] Slay them not, lest my people forget, Shake them by Thy strength, And bring them down, O Lord our shield.
[12] The sin of their mouth is a word of their lips, And they are captured in their pride, And from the curse and lying they recount.
[13] Consume in fury, consume and they are not, And they know that God is ruling in Jacob, To the ends of the earth. Selah.
[14] And they turn back at evening, They make a noise like a dog, And they go round about the city.
[15] They-they wander for food, If they are not satisfied-then they murmur.
[16] And I-I sing of Thy strength, And I sing at morn of Thy kindness, For thou hast been a tower to me, And a refuge for me in a day of adversity.
[17] O my Strength, unto Thee I sing praise, For God is my tower, the God of my kindness!
