Psalms 54

 1 Unto the end. In verses, the understanding of David 2 Listen to my prayer, O God, and despise not my supplication 3 Be attentive to me, and heed me. I have been grieved in my training, and I have been disturbe 4 at the voice of the adversary and at the tribulation of the sinner. For they have diverted iniquities toward me, and they have been harassing me with rage 5 My heart has become disturbed within me, and the dread of death has fallen over me 6 Fear and trembling have overwhelmed me, and darkness has buried me 7 And I said, "Who will give me wings like the dove, so that I may fly away and take rest? 8 Behold, I have fled far away, and I linger in solitude 9 I waited for him who saved me from a weak-minded spirit and from a tempest 10 Cast them down, O Lord, and divide their tongues. For I have seen iniquity and contradiction in the city 11 Day and night, iniquity will surround it upon its walls, and hardship is in its midst 12 with injustice. And usury and deceit have not fallen away from its streets 13 For if my enemy had spoken evil about me, certainly, I would have sustained it. And if he who hated me had been speaking great things against me, I would perhaps have hidden myself from him 14 Truly, you are a man of one mind: my leader and my acquaintance 15 who took sweet food together with me. In the house of God, we walked side-by-side 16 Let death come upon them, and let them descend alive into Hellfire. For there is wickedness in their dwellings, in their midst 17 But I have cried out to God, and the Lord will save me 18 Evening and morning and midday, I will discourse and announce, and he will heed my voice 19 He will redeem my soul in peace from those who draw near to me. For, among the many, they were with me 20 God will hear, and He who is before time will humble them. For there is no change with them, and they have not feared God 21 He has stretched forth his hand in retribution. They have contaminated his covenant 22 They were divided by the wrath of his countenance, and his heart has drawn near. His words are smoother than oil, and they are arrows 23 Cast your cares upon the Lord, and he will nurture you. He will not allow the just to be tossed about forever 24 Truly, O God, you will lead them away into the well of death. Bloody and deceitful men will not divide their days in half. But I will hope in you, O Lord
