Psalm 59

BBE 1 <To the chief music-maker; put to At-tashheth. Michtam. Of David. When Saul sent, and they were watching the house, to put him to death.> Take me out of the hands of the cruel ones, O my God; keep me safe from those who come up against me. NIV 1 Deliver me from my enemies, O God; be my fortress against those who are attacking me. BBE 2 Take me out of the power of the workers of evil, and keep me safe from the men of blood. NIV 2 Deliver me from evildoers and save me from those who are after my blood. BBE 3 For see, they are watching in secret for my soul; the strong have come together against me? but not because of my sin, or my evil-doing, O Lord. NIV 3 See how they lie in wait for me! Fierce men conspire against me for no offense or sin of mine, LORD. BBE 4 For no sin of mine they go quickly and get themselves ready; be awake and come to my help, and see. NIV 4 I have done no wrong, yet they are ready to attack me. Arise to help me; look on my plight! BBE 5 You, O Lord God of armies, are the God of Israel; come now and give punishment to the nations; have no mercy on any workers of deceit. (Selah.) NIV 5 You, LORD God Almighty, you who are the God of Israel, rouse yourself to punish all the nations; show no mercy to wicked traitors. BBE 6 They come back in the evening; they make a noise like a dog, and go round the town. NIV 6 They return at evening, snarling like dogs, and prowl about the city. BBE 7 See, hate is dropping from their lips; curses are on their tongues: they say, Who gives attention to it? NIV 7 See what they spew from their mouths— the words from their lips are sharp as swords, and they think, “Who can hear us?” BBE 8 But you are laughing at them, O Lord; you will make sport of all the nations. NIV 8 But you laugh at them, LORD; you scoff at all those nations. BBE 9 O my strength, I will put my hope in you; because God is my strong tower. NIV 9 You are my strength, I watch for you; you, God, are my fortress, BBE 10 The God of my mercy will go before me: God will let me see my desire effected on my haters. NIV 10 my God on whom I can rely. God will go before me and will let me gloat over those who slander me. BBE 11 Put them not to death, for so my people will keep the memory of them: let them be sent in all directions by your power; make them low, O Lord our saviour. NIV 11 But do not kill them, Lord our shield,or my people will forget. In your might uproot them and bring them down. BBE 12 Because of the sin of their mouths and the word of their lips, let them even be taken in their pride; and for their curses and their deceit, NIV 12 For the sins of their mouths, for the words of their lips, let them be caught in their pride. For the curses and lies they utter, BBE 13 Put an end to them in your wrath, put an end to them, so that they may not be seen again; let them see that God is ruling in Jacob and to the ends of the earth. (Selah.) NIV 13 consume them in your wrath, consume them till they are no more. Then it will be known to the ends of the earth that God rules over Jacob. BBE 14 And in the evening let them come back, and make a noise like a dog, and go round the town. NIV 14 They return at evening, snarling like dogs, and prowl about the city. BBE 15 Let them go wandering up and down in search of food, and be there all night if they have not enough. NIV 15 They wander about for food and howl if not satisfied. BBE 16 But I will make songs of your power; yes, I will give cries of joy for your mercy in the morning; because you have been my strength and my high tower in the day of my trouble. NIV 16 But I will sing of your strength, in the morning I will sing of your love; for you are my fortress, my refuge in times of trouble. BBE 17 To you, O my strength, will I make my song: because God is my high tower, even the God of my mercy. NIV 17 You are my strength, I sing praise to you; you, God, are my fortress, my God on whom I can rely.
