Deliver me from my enemies, O my Elohim; Set me on high from those who rise up against me.
Deliver me from the workers of wickedness, And save me from men of blood.
For look, they have lain in wait for my life; Mighty men assemble against me, For no transgression or sin of mine, O YHWH,
For no guilt of mine! They run and prepare themselves. Awake to help me, and see!
And You, YHWH Elohim of hosts, Elohim of Yisra'el, Awake to punish all the gentiles; Show no favour to any wicked traitors. Selah.
They return at evening, They howl like a dog, And go around the city.
See, they belch out with their mouth, Swords are in their lips, For who is listening?
But You, YHWH, laughs at them, You mock all the gentiles.
O my Strength, I wait for You; For Elohim is my strong tower, My Elohim of kindness.
Elohim does go before me, He lets me look upon my enemies.
Do not slay them, lest my people forget; Scatter them by Your power, And bring them down, O YHWH our shield.
The sin of their mouth is the words of their lips, And they are captured in their pride, And for the cursing and lying they utter.
Bring them to an end in wrath, Bring them to an end, That they be no more; And let them know That Elohim is ruling in Ya'aqob To the ends of the earth. Selah.
And at evening they return, They howl like a dog, And go around the city.
They wander up and down for food, And whine if they are not satisfied.
And I, I sing of Your power; And in the morning I sing aloud of Your kindness; For You have been my strong tower And a refuge in the day of my distress.
O my Strength, to You I sing praises; For Elohim is my strong tower, My Elohim of kindness.
