Geneva Study Bible
   1: (For the Chief Musician. On stringed instruments. A contemplation by David.) Listen to my prayer, God. Don't hide yourself from my supplication.
   2: Attend to me, and answer me. I am restless in my complaint, and moan,
   3: Because of the voice of the enemy, Because of the oppression of the wicked. For they bring suffering on me. In anger they hold a grudge against me.
   4: My heart is severely pained within me. The terrors of death have fallen on me.
   5: Fearfulness and trembling have come on me. Horror has overwhelmed me.
   6: I said, "Oh that I had wings like a dove! Then I would fly away, and be at rest.
   7: Behold, then I would wander far off. I would lodge in the wilderness." Selah.
   8: "I would hurry to a shelter from the stormy wind and tempest."
   9: Confuse them, Lord, and confound their language, For I have seen violence and strife in the city.
   10: Day and night they prowl around on its walls. Malice and abuse are also within her.
   11: Destructive forces are within her. Threats and lies don't depart from her streets.
   12: For it was not an enemy who insulted me, Then I could have endured it. Neither was it he who hated me who raised himself up against me, Then I would have hid myself from him.
   13: But it was you, a man like me, My companion, and my familiar friend.
   14: We took sweet fellowship together. We walked in God's house with the throng.
   15: Let death come suddenly on them. Let them go down alive into Sheol. For wickedness is in their dwelling, in the midst of them.
   16: As for me, I will call on God. Yahweh will save me.
   17: Evening, morning, and at noon, I will cry out in distress. He will hear my voice.
   18: He has redeemed my soul in peace from the battle that was against me, Although there are many who oppose me.
   19: God, who is enthroned forever, Will hear, and answer them. Selah. They never change, Who don't fear God.
   20: He raises his hands against his friends. He has violated his covenant.
   21: His mouth was smooth as butter, But his heart was war. His words were softer than oil, Yet they were drawn swords.
   22: Cast your burden on Yahweh, and he will sustain you. He will never allow the righteous to be moved.
   23: But you, God, will bring them down into the pit of destruction. Bloodthirsty and deceitful men shall not live out half their days, But I will trust in you.
