The Bible – Old Testament Psalms Index Chapter 59 1 1 2 For the director. Do not destroy. A miktam of David, when Saul sent people to watch his house and kill him. 2 Rescue me from my enemies, my God; lift me out of reach of my foes. 3 Deliver me from evildoers; from the bloodthirsty save me. 4 They have set an ambush for my life; the powerful conspire against me. For no offense or misdeed of mine, LORD, 5 for no fault they hurry to take up arms. Come near and see my plight! 6 You, LORD of hosts, are the God of Israel! Awake! Punish all the nations. Have no mercy on these worthless traitors. Selah 7 Each evening they return, growling like dogs, prowling the city. 8 3 Their mouths pour out insult; sharp words are on their lips. They say:… Continue reading Psalms – Chapter 59

In you I seek shelter. In the shadow of your wings 3 I seek shelter till harm pass by. 3 I call to God Most High, to God who provides for me. 4 May God send help from heaven to save me, shame those who trample upon me. May God send fidelity and love. Selah 5 I must lie down in the midst of lions hungry for human prey. Their teeth are spears and arrows; their tongue, a sharpened sword. 6 Show yourself over the heavens, God; may your glory appear above all the earth. 7 They have set a trap for my feet;… Continue reading Psalms – Chapter 57

What can mere flesh do to me? 6 All… Continue reading Psalms – Chapter 56

I rock with grief; I groan 4 at the uproar of the enemy, the clamor of the wicked. They heap trouble upon me, savagely accuse me. 5 My heart pounds within me; death’s terrors fall upon me. 6 Fear and trembling overwhelm me; shuddering sweeps over me. 7 I say, “If only I had wings like a dove that I might fly away and find rest. 8 Far away I would flee;… Continue reading Psalms – Chapter 55

By your strength defend my cause. 4 O God, hear my prayer. Listen to the words of my mouth. 5 The arrogant have risen against me; the ruthless seek my life; they do not keep God before them. Selah 6 God is present as my helper; the Lord sustains my life. 7 Turn back the evil upon my foes; in your faithfulness, destroy them. 8 Then I will offer you generous sacrifice and… Continue reading Psalms – Chapter 54
