Tehillim (Book of Psalms), Chapter 59

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 For the Leader; Al-tashheth. A Psalm of David; Michtam; when Saul sent, and they watched the house to kill him.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 Deliver me from mine enemies, O my G-d; set me on high from them that rise up against me.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 Deliver me from the workers of iniquity, and save me from the men of blood.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 For, lo, they lie in wait for my soul; the impudent gather themselves together against me; not for my transgression, nor for my sin, O HaShem.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 Without my fault, they run and prepare themselves; awake Thou to help me, and behold.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 Thou therefore, O HaShem G-d of hosts, the G-d of Israel, arouse Thyself to punish all the nations; show no mercy to any iniquitous traitors. Selah

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 They return at evening, they howl like a dog, and go round about the city.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 Behold, they belch out with their mouth; swords are in their lips: 'For who doth hear?'

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 But Thou, O HaShem, shalt laugh at them; Thou shalt have all the nations in derision.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 Because of his strength, I will wait for Thee; for G-d is my high tower.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 The G-d of my mercy will come to meet me; G-d will let me gaze upon mine adversaries.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000B-QINU`"'12 Slay them not, lest my people forget, make them wander to and fro by Thy power, and bring them down, O L-rd our shield.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000C-QINU`"'13 For the sin of their mouth, and the words of their lips, let them even be taken in their pride, and for cursing and lying which they speak.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000D-QINU`"'14 Consume them in wrath, consume them, that they be no more; and let them know that G-d ruleth in Jacob, unto the ends of the earth. Selah

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000E-QINU`"'15 And they return at evening, they howl like a dog, and go round about the city;

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000F-QINU`"'16 They wander up and down to devour, and tarry all night if they have not their fill.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000010-QINU`"'17 But as for me, I will sing of Thy strength; yea, I will sing aloud of Thy mercy in the morning; for Thou hast been my high tower, and a refuge in the day of my distress.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000011-QINU`"'18 O my strength, unto Thee will I sing praises; for G-d is my high tower, the G-d of my mercy.
