PS 55:1 <> Listen to my prayer, God. Don't hide yourself from my supplication.

PS 55:2 Attend to me, and answer me. I am restless in my complaint, and moan,

PS 55:3 Because of the voice of the enemy, Because of the oppression of the wicked. For they bring suffering on me. In anger they hold a grudge against me.

PS 55:4 My heart is severely pained within me. The terrors of death have fallen on me.

PS 55:5 Fearfulness and trembling have come on me. Horror has overwhelmed me.

PS 55:6 I said, "Oh that I had wings like a dove! Then I would fly away, and be at rest.

PS 55:7 Behold, then I would wander far off. I would lodge in the wilderness." Selah.

PS 55:8 "I would hurry to a shelter from the stormy wind and tempest."

PS 55:9 Confuse them, Lord, and confound their language, For I have seen violence and strife in the city.

PS 55:10 Day and night they prowl around on its walls. Malice and abuse are also within her.

PS 55:11 Destructive forces are within her. Threats and lies don't depart from her streets.

PS 55:12 For it was not an enemy who insulted me, Then I could have endured it. Neither was it he who hated me who raised himself up against me, Then I would have hid myself from him.

PS 55:13 But it was you, a man like me, My companion, and my familiar friend.

PS 55:14 We took sweet fellowship together. We walked in God's house with company.

PS 55:15 Let death come suddenly on them. Let them go down alive into Sheol. For wickedness is in their dwelling, in the midst of them.

PS 55:16 As for me, I will call on God. Yahweh will save me.

PS 55:17 Evening, morning, and at noon, I will cry out in distress. He will hear my voice.

PS 55:18 He has redeemed my soul in peace from the battle that was against me, Although there are many who oppose me.

PS 55:19 God, who is enthroned forever, Will hear, and answer them. Selah. They never change, Who don't fear God.

PS 55:20 He raises his hands against his friends. He has violated his covenant.

PS 55:21 His mouth was smooth as butter, But his heart was war. His words were softer than oil, Yet they were drawn swords.

PS 55:22 Cast your burden on Yahweh, and he will sustain you. He will never allow the righteous to be moved.

PS 55:23 But you, God, will bring them down into the pit of destruction. Bloodthirsty and deceitful men shall not live out half their days, But I will trust in you.
