    Psalms 55
    King James Version

    1 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.​
    11 Wickedness is in the midst thereof:
    deceit and guile depart not from her streets.​

    12 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:​
    13 But it was thou, a man mine equal,
    my guide, and mine acquaintance.​
    14 We took sweet counsel together,
    and walked unto the house of God in company.​

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

    16 As for me, I will call upon God;
    and the Lord shall save me.​
    17 Evening, and morning, and at noon,
    will I pray, and cry aloud:
    and he shall hear my voice.​
    18 He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me:
    for there were many with me.​
    19 God shall hear, and afflict them,
    even he that abideth of old. Selah.
    Because they have no changes,
    therefore they fear not God.​

    20 He hath put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him:
    he hath broken his covenant.​
    21 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.​

    22 Cast thy burden upon the Lord,
    and he shall sustain thee:
    he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.​
    23 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.​

    About Author

    Trusting and Obeying the God of Truth: Loving others within the limits that truth allows. "...not as though I wrote to thee a new commandment, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. And this is love, that we walk according to his commandments; this is the commandment, just as you have heard from the beginning, so that you should walk in it." —2 John 1:5-6
