Psalms 55


55:1 To the chief Musician on Neginoth, Maschil, [A Psalm] of
 David. Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself from
 my supplication.
55:2 Attend to me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and
 make a noise;
55:3 Because of the voice of the enemy, because of the
 oppression of the wicked: for they cast iniquity upon me, and
 in wrath they hate me.
55:4 My heart is severely pained within me: and the terrors of
 death have fallen upon me.
55:5 Fearfulness and trembling have come upon me, and horror
 hath overwhelmed me.
55:6 And I said, O that I had wings like a dove! [for then] I
 would fly away, and be at rest.
55:7 Lo, [then] I would wander far off, [and] remain in the
 wilderness. Selah.
55:8 I would hasten my escape from the windy storm [and]
 tempest.
55:9 Destroy, O LORD, [and] divide their tongues: for I have
 seen violence and strife in the city.
55:10 Day and night they go about it upon its walls: mischief
 also and sorrow [are] in the midst of it.
55:11 Wickedness [is] in the midst of it: deceit and guile
 depart not from her streets.
55:12 For [it was] not an enemy [that] reproached me; then I
 could have borne [it]: neither [was it] he that hated me [that]
 magnified [himself] against me; then I would have hid myself
 from him:
55:13 But [it was] thou, a man my equal, my guide, and my
 acquaintance.
55:14 We took sweet counsel together, [and] walked to the house
 of God in company.
55:15 Let death seize upon them, [and] let them go down quick
 into hell: for wickedness [is] in their dwellings, [and] among
 them.
55:16 As for me, I will call upon God: and the LORD will save
 me.
55:17 Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry
 aloud: and he will hear my voice.
55:18 He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle [that
 was] against me: for there were many with me.
55:19 God will hear and afflict them, even he that abideth of
 old. Selah. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear
 not God.
55:20 He hath put forth his hands against such as are at peace
 with him: he hath broken his covenant.
55:21 [The words] of his mouth were smoother than butter, but
 war [was] in his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet
 [were] they drawn swords.
55:22 Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he will sustain thee:
 he will never suffer the righteous to be moved.
55:23 But thou, O God, wilt bring them down into the pit of
 destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half
 their days; but I will trust in thee.
