Exept for verse 4 which follows the translation of New International Version (NIV) )

  1. For the conductor, al tashcheth; of David a michtam, when Saul sent and they guarded the house to slay him.
  2. Save me from my enemies, my God; strengthen me against those who rise up against me.
  3. Save me from workers of iniquity, and rescue me from bloodthirsty men.
  4. See how they lie in wait for me!  Fierce men conspire against me for no offense or sin of mine, Lord.
  5. Without iniquity, they run and prepare themselves; awaken towards me and see.
  6. And You, O Lord, God of Hosts, God of Israel, arise to visit upon all the nations; be not gracious to any treacherous workers of iniquity forever.
  7. They return in the evening, they howl like a dog and encircle the city.
  8. Behold, they spew forth with their mouth; [they have] swords in their lips, for who hears?
  9. But You, O Lord, will scoff at them; You will mock all the nations.
  10. [Because of] his strength, I hope for You, for God is my fortress.
  11. The God of my kindness will precede me; God will allow me to see in those who watch me.
  12. Do not kill them, lest my people forget; remove them from their possessions with Your power and bring them down, O Lord our Shield.
  13. The sin of their mouth is the word of their lips, and they will be seized because of their haughtiness, because of the curse and the lies that they tell.
  14. Destroy [them] with wrath so that they will be no longer, and they will know that God rules over Jacob to the ends of the earth forever.
  15. And they will return in the evening, they will howl like dogs, and they will encircle the city.
  16. They will roam about to eat if they are not sated, so that they will lodge.
  17. And I will sing of Your power, and I will sing praises of Your kindness in the morning, for You were my stronghold and a refuge on a day that I was in straits.
  18. My strength! To You will I sing for God is my stronghold, O God of my kindness.
