NASB — Psalms 59 — KJV

Prayer for Deliverance from Enemies.

For the choir director; [set to] Al-tashheth. A Mikhtam of David, when Saul sent [men] and they watched the house in order to kill him.

  1 aDeliver me from my enemies, O my God;
  IbSet me [securely] on high away from those who rise up against me.
  2 Deliver me from athose who do iniquity
  And save me from bmen of bloodshed.
  3 For behold, they ahave Iset an ambush for my IIlife;
  IIIFierce men IValaunch an attack against me,
  bNot for my transgression nor for my sin, O LORD,
  4 IaFor no guilt of [mine], they run and set themselves against me.
  bArouse Yourself to IIhelp me, and see!
  5 You, aO LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel,
  Awake to Ibpunish all the nations;
  cDo not be gracious to any [who are] treacherous in iniquity.
      IISelah.
  6 They areturn at evening, they howl like a bdog,
  And go around the city.
  7 Behold, they abelch forth with their mouth;
  bSwords are in their lips,
  For, [they say], “cWho hears?”
  8 But You, O LORD, alaugh at them;
  You bscoff at all the nations.

David prayeth to be delivered from his enemies.

1 ¶ [[To the chief Musician, Altaschith, Michtam of David; when Saul sent, and they watched the house to kill him.]] Deliver me from mine enemies, O my God: defend me from them that rise up against me. 2 Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from bloody men. 3 For, lo, they lie in wait for my soul: the mighty are gathered against me; not [for] my transgression, nor [for] my sin, O LORD. 4 They run and prepare themselves without [my] fault: awake to help me, and behold. 5 Thou therefore, O LORD God of hosts, the God of Israel, awake to visit all the heathen: be not merciful to any wicked transgressors. Selah.

Selah. 14 And at evening let them return; [and] let them make a noise like a dog, and go round about the city. 15 Let them wander up and down for meat, and grudge if they be not satisfied.
