Young's Literal Translation
You don't socialize with Wicked, or invite Evil over as your houseguest.
Shout Hallelujah, you God-worshipers; give glory, you sons of Jacob; adore him, you daughters of Israel.
Earth-creatures, bow before God; world-dwellers - down on your knees!
They gang up, sneak together through the alleys To take me by surprise, wait their chance to get me.
Desperadoes have ganged up on me, they're hiding in ambush for me. I did nothing to deserve this, God,
A lifetime pass to your safe-house, an open invitation as your guest.
When they didn't count for much, a mere handful, and strangers at that,
Then Israel entered Egypt, Jacob immigrated to the Land of Ham.
I'm doomed to live in Meshech, cursed with a home in Kedar,
All they do is think up new ways to be bad; they spend their days plotting war games.
