Psalms 55

1  To the chief Musician on Neginoth, Maschil, A Psalm of David. Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself from my supplication.

2  Attend unto me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and make a noise;

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.

4  My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrors of death are fallen upon me.

5  Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror hath overwhelmed me.

6  And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest.

7  Lo, then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness. Selah.

8  I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest.

9  Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues: for I have seen violence and strife in the city.

10  Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof: mischief also and sorrow are in the midst of it.
