019:055:001
Give ear to my prayer,
O God;
and hide not thyself from my supplication.


019:055:002
Attend unto me,
and hear me:
I mourn in my complaint,
and make a noise;


019:055:003
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.


019:055:004
My heart is sore pained within me:
and the terrors of death are fallen upon me.


019:055:005
Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me,
and horror hath overwhelmed me.


019:055:006
And I said,
Oh that I had wings like a dove!
for then would I fly away,
and be at rest.


019:055:007
Lo,
then would I wander far off,
and remain in the wilderness.
Selah.


019:055:008
I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest.


019:055:009
Destroy,
O Lord,
and divide their tongues:
for I have seen violence and strife in the city.


019:055:010
Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof:
mischief also and sorrow are in the midst of it.


019:055:011
Wickedness is in the midst thereof:
deceit and guile depart not from her streets.


019:055:012
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 against me;
then I would have hid myself from him:


019:055:013
But it was thou,
a man mine equal,
my guide,
and mine acquaintance.


019:055:014
We took sweet counsel together,
and walked unto the house of God in company.


019:055:015
Let death seize upon them,
and let them go down quick into hell:
for wickedness is in their dwellings,
and among them.


019:055:016
As for me,
I will call upon God;
and the LORD shall save me.


019:055:017
Evening,
and morning,
and at noon,
will I pray,
and cry aloud:
and he shall hear my voice.


019:055:018
He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me:
for there were many with me.


019:055:019
God shall hear,
and afflict them,
even he that abideth of old.
Selah.
Because they have no changes,
therefore they fear not God.


019:055:020
He hath put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him:
he hath broken his covenant.


019:055:021
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.


019:055:022
Cast thy burden upon the LORD,
and he shall sustain thee:
he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.


019:055:023
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.
