Psalm 59. Eripe me de inimicis.

From the Book of Divine Worship - The Psalter or Psalms of David - Contemporary - Eleventh Day - Evening Prayer.
  1. Rescue me from my enemies, O God; *
    protect me from those who rise up against me.
  2. Rescue me from evildoers *
    and save me from those who thirst for my blood.
  3. See how they lie in wait for my life, how the mighty gather together against me; *
    not for any offense or fault of mine, O Lord.
  4. Not because of any guilt of mine *
    they run and prepare themselves for battle.
  5. Rouse yourself, come to my side, and see; *
    for you, Lord God of hosts, are Israel's God.
  6. Awake, and punish all the ungodly; *
    show no mercy to those who are faithless and evil.
  7. They go to and fro in the evening; *
    they snarl like dogs and run about the city.
  8. Behold, they boast with their mouths, and taunts are on their lips; *
    For who, they say, "will hear us?"
  9. But you, O Lord, you laugh at them; *
    you laugh all the ungodly to scorn.
  10. My eyes are fixed on you, O my Strength; *
    for you, O God, are my stronghold.
  11. My merciful God comes to meet me; *
    God will let me look in triumph on my enemies.
  12. Slay them, O God, lest my people forget; *
    send them reeling by your might and put them down, O Lord our shield.
  13. For the sins of their mouths, for the words of their lips, for the cursing and lies that they utter, *
    let them be caught in their pride.
  14. Make an end of them in your wrath; *
    make an end of them, and they shall be no more.
  15. Let everyone know that God rules in Jacob, *
    and to the ends of the earth.
  16. They go to and fro in the evening; *
    they snarl like dogs and run about the city.
  17. They forage for food, *
    and if they are not filled, they howl.
  18. For my part, I will sing of your strength; *
    I will celebrate your love in the morning;
  19. For you have become my stronghold, *
    a refuge in the day of my trouble.
  20. To you, O my Strength, will I sing; *
    for you, O God, are my stronghold and my merciful God.
