  1 Give ear, O God, to my prayer; And do not hide Yourself from my supplication.

  2 Give heed to me, and answer me. I grow restless in my complaint and moan,

  3 Because of the voice of the enemy, Because of the oppression of the wicked man; For they drop iniquity upon me, And in anger they make me their enemy.

  4 My heart writhes within me, And the terrors of death have fallen upon me.

  5 Fear and trembling have come upon me, And shuddering overwhelms me.

  6 And I say, Oh that I had wings like a dove! Then I would fly away and be at rest.

  7 Indeed I would wander far away; I would lodge in the wilderness.

  8 I would hasten my escape From the storm wind and the tempest.

  9 Confuse, O Lord, divide their tongue; For I have seen violence and contention in the city.

10 Day and night they go around it, Upon its walls; And iniquity and trouble are in the midst of it.

11 Utter ruin is in the midst of it, And oppression and deceit Do not depart from its streets.

12 For it is not an enemy who reproaches me; Otherwise I could bear it. It is not he who hates me who magnifies himself against me; Otherwise I could hide myself from him.

13 But it is you, my equal, My close friend and my acquaintance.

14 We were in sweet counsel together; We walked with the throng in the house of God.

15 Let death surprise them; May they go down into Sheol alive. For evil is in their dwelling, in the midst of them.

16 As for me, I call out to God, And Jehovah will save me.

17 Evening and morning and at noontime I complain and moan, And He hears my voice.

18 He has redeemed my soul in peace From the battle against me, For many are they who strive with me.

19 God hears and answers them - Even He who sits enthroned from of old - Because with them there is no change, And they do not fear God.

20 He put forth his hands against those who were at peace with him; He profaned his covenant.

21 Smooth were the buttery words of his mouth, But his heart was war; More soothing than oil were his words, But they were in fact drawn swords.

22 Cast your burden upon Jehovah, And He will sustain you; He will never allow the righteous to be moved.

23 But You, O God, will bring them down Into the lowest pit. Men of bloodshed and deceit Will not live out half their days; But I will trust in You.
