Book 27 : KETUVIM - PSALMS - Chapter 055


For the Leader; with string-music. Maschil of David


Give ear, O G-d, to my prayer; and hide not Thyself from my supplication


Attend unto me, and hear me; I am distraught in my complaint, and will moan


Because of the voice of the enemy, because of the oppression of the wicked; for they cast mischief upon me, and in anger they persecute me


My heart doth writhe within me; and the terrors of death are fallen upon me


Fear and trembling come upon me, and horror hath overwhelmed me


And I said: 'Oh that I had wings like a dove! then would I fly away, and be at rest


Lo, then would I wander far off, I would lodge in the wilderness. Sela


I would haste me to a shelter from the stormy wind and tempest.


Destroy, O L-rd, and divide their tongue; for I have seen violence and strife in the city


Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof; iniquity also and mischief are in the midst of it


Wickedness is in the midst thereof; oppression and guile depart not from her broad place


For it was not an enemy that taunted me, then I could have borne it; neither was it mine adversary that did magnify himself against me, then I would have hid myself from him


But it was thou, a man mine equal, my companion, and my familiar friend


We took sweet counsel together, in the house of G-d we walked with the throng


May He incite death against them, let them go down alive into the nether-world; for evil is in their dwelling, and within them


As for me, I will call upon G-d; and HaShem shall save me


Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I complain, and moan; and He hath heard my voice


He hath redeemed my soul in peace so that none came nigh me; for they were many that strove with me


G-d shall hear, and humble them, even He that is enthroned of old, Selah, such as have no changes, and fear not G-d


He hath put forth his hands against them that were at peace with him; he hath profaned his covenant


Smoother than cream were the speeches of his mouth, but his heart was war; his words were softer than oil, yet were they keen-edged swords


Cast thy burden upon HaShem, and He will sustain thee; He will never suffer the righteous to be moved


But Thou, O G-d, wilt bring them down into the nethermost pit; men of blood and deceit shall not live out half their days; but as for me, I will trust in Thee
