Psalm 58 (Kathisma 8)

Read on Tuesday (Monday and Thursday during Lent)

For the End: Destroy not. By David; For a Pillar Inscription. When Saul Sent and Watched His House to Slay Him.

(Psalm 59 – Hebrew Numbering)

Rescue me from mine enemies, O God, and from them that rise up against me redeem me.
Deliver me from them that work iniquity, and from men of blood do Thou save me.
For lo, they have hunted after my soul, the mighty have set upon me.
Neither is it mine iniquity, O Lord, nor my sin; without iniquity I ran, and directed my steps; arise to meet me, and behold.
And Thou, O Lord God of hosts, the God of Israel, be attentive to visit all the heathen; be not merciful to any that work iniquity.
They shall return at evening, and shall hunger like dogs, and shall go round about the city.
Behold, they shall utter sounds with their mouth, and a sword is in their lips: For who, say they, hath heard?
And Thou, O Lord, shalt laugh them to scorn; Thou shalt bring to nought all the heathen.
O my Strength, I will keep watch for Thee, for Thou, O God, art my helper.
As for my God, His mercy shall go before me; my God shall make it manifest unto me among mine enemies.
Slay them not, lest at any time they forget Thy law; scatter them by Thy power, and bring them down, O Lord my defender.
The sin of their mouth is the speech of their lips; yea, let them be taken captive in their pride.
And from their curse and falsehood shall their final destruction be made known in the wrath of their utter destruction, and they shall be no more.
And they shall know that God is sovereign of Jacob and of the ends of the earth.
They shall return at evening, and shall hunger like dogs, and shall go round about the city.
They shall be scattered abroad that they may eat; if they be not satisfied, they shall murmur.
But as for me, I will sing of Thy power; and in the morning I will rejoice in Thy mercy.
For Thou art become my helper and my refuge in the day of my tribulation.
Thou art my helper, unto Thee will I chant; for Thou, O God, art my helper; O my God, Thou art my mercy.
