Psalms Chapter 55
55:1 Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself from my
55:2 Attend unto me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and make a
55:3 Because of the voice of the enemy, because of the oppression of the
wicked: for they cast iniquity upon me, and in wrath they hate me.
55:4 My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrors of death are
fallen upon me.
55:5 Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror hath
55:6 And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly
away, and be at rest.
55:7 Lo, then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness.
55:8 I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest.
55:9 Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues: for I have seen violence
and strife in the city.
55:10 Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof: mischief
also and sorrow are in the midst of it.
55:11 Wickedness is in the midst thereof: deceit and guile depart not
from her streets.
55:12 For it was not an enemy that reproached me; then I could have
borne it: neither was it he that hated me that did magnify himself

55:16 As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me.
55:17 Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and
he shall hear my voice.
55:18 He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was
against me: for there were many with me.
55:19 God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abideth of old.
Selah. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God.
55:20 He hath put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him:
he hath broken his covenant.
55:21 The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in
his heart: his words were softer than oil, yet were they drawn swords.
55:22 Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall
never suffer the righteous to be moved.
55:23 But thou, O God, shalt bring them down into the pit of
destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their
days; but I will trust in thee.
