Tehillim (Psalms) 59
1Deliver me from my enemies, O my Elohim; Set me on high from those who rise up against me.
2Deliver me from the workers of wickedness, And save me from men of blood.
3For look, they have lain in wait for my life; Mighty men assemble against me, For no transgression or sin of mine, O יהוה,
4For no guilt of mine! They run and prepare themselves. Awake to help me, and see!
5And You, יהוה Elohim of hosts, Elohim of Yisra’ĕl, Awake to punish all the nations; Show no favour to any wicked traitors. Selah.
6They return at evening, They howl like a dog, And go around the city.
7See, they belch out with their mouth, Swords are in their lips, For who is listening?
8But You, יהוה, laugh at them, You mock all the nations.
9O my Strength, I wait for You; For Elohim is my strong tower.
10My Elohim of loving-commitment, Elohim does go before me. He lets me look upon my enemies.
11Do not kill them, lest my people forget; Scatter them by Your power, And bring them down, O יהוה our shield.
12The sin of their mouth is the words of their lips, And they are captured in their pride, And for the cursing and lying they utter.
13Bring them to an end in wrath, Bring them to an end, That they be no more; And let them know That Elohim is ruling in Ya‛aqoḇ To the ends of the earth. Selah.
14And at evening they return, They howl like a dog, And go around the city.
15They wander up and down for food, And whine if they are not satisfied.
16And I, I sing of Your power; And in the morning I sing aloud of Your loving-commitment; For You have been my strong tower And a refuge in the day of my distress.
17O my Strength, to You I sing praises; For Elohim is my strong tower, My Elohim of loving-commitment.
