55:1 <To the chief music-maker, on Neginoth. Maschil. Of David.> Give hearing to my prayer, O God; and let not your ear be shut against my request.

55:2 Give thought to me, and let my prayer be answered: I have been made low in sorrow;

55:3 I am troubled because of the voice of the cruel ones, because of the loud cry of the evil-doers; for they put a weight of evil on me, and they are cruel in their hate for me.

55:4 My heart is deeply wounded, and the fear of death has come on me.

55:5 Fear and shaking have come over me, with deep fear I am covered.

55:6 And I said, If only I had wings like a dove! for then I would go in flight from here and be at rest.

55:7 I would go wandering far away, living in the waste land. (Selah.)

55:8 I would quickly take cover from the driving storm and from the violent wind.

55:9 Send destruction on them, O Lord, make a division of tongues among them: for I have seen fighting and violent acts in the town.

55:10 By day and night they go round the town, on the walls; trouble and sorrow are in the heart of it.

55:11 Evil is there; cruel rule and deceit are ever in the streets.

55:12 For it was not my hater who said evil of me; that would have been no grief to me; it was not one outside the number of my friends who made himself strong against me, or I would have kept myself from him in a secret place;

55:13 But it was you, my equal, my guide, my well-loved friend.

55:14 We had loving talk together, and went to the house of God in company.

55:15 Let the hand of death come on them suddenly, and let them go down living into the underworld; because evil is in their houses and in their hearts.

55:16 As for me, I will make my prayer to God, and he will be my saviour.

55:17 In the evening and in the morning and in the middle of the day I will make my prayer with sounds of grief; and my voice will come to his ears.

55:18 He has taken my soul away from the attack which was made against me, and given it peace; for great numbers were against me.

55:19 God will give thought to me; he who from early times is strong will send pain and trouble on them. (Selah.) Because they are unchanged, they have no fear of God.

55:20 He has put out his hand against those who were at peace with him; he has not kept his agreement.

55:21 The words of his mouth were smoother than butter, but war was in his heart; his words were softer than oil, but they were sharp swords.

55:22 Put your cares on the Lord, and he will be your support; he will not let the upright man be moved.

55:23 But you, O God, will send them down into the underworld; the cruel and the false will be cut off before half their days are ended; but I will have faith in you.
