Psalm 55 - Versions
Psalm 55 Text (WEB)
  1. 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 storm."
  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 hidden 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 company.
  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. For the Chief Musician. To the tune of "Silent Dove in Distant Lands." A poem by David, when the Philistines seized him in Gath.

Psalm 55 Text (Greek)
  1. ενωτισαι ο θεος την προσευχην μου και μη υπεριδης την δεησιν
  2. προσχες μοι και εισακουσον μου ελυπηθην εν τη αδολεσχια μου και
  3. απο φωνης εχθρου και απο θλιψεως αμαρτωλου οτι εξεκλιναν επ' εμε ανομιαν και εν οργη ενεκοτουν
  4. η καρδια μου εταραχθη εν εμοι και δειλια θανατου επεπεσεν επ'
  5. φοβος και τρομος ηλθεν επ' εμε και εκαλυψεν με
  6. και ειπα τις δωσει μοι πτερυγας ωσει περιστερας και πετασθησομαι και
  7. ιδου εμακρυνα φυγαδευων και ηυλισθην εν τη ερημω
  8. προσεδεχομην τον σωζοντα με απο ολιγοψυχιας και
  9. καταποντισον κυριε και καταδιελε τας γλωσσας αυτων οτι ειδον ανομιαν και αντιλογιαν εν τη
  10. ημερας και νυκτος κυκλωσει αυτην επι τα τειχη αυτης ανομια και κοπος εν μεσω αυτης και
  11. και ουκ εξελιπεν εκ των πλατειων αυτης τοκος και
  12. οτι ει εχθρος ωνειδισεν με υπηνεγκα αν και ει ο μισων με επ' εμε εμεγαλορρημονησεν εκρυβην αν απ'
  13. συ δε ανθρωπε ισοψυχε ηγεμων μου και γνωστε
  14. ος επι το αυτο μοι εγλυκανας εδεσματα εν τω οικω του θεου επορευθημεν εν
  15. ελθετω θανατος επ' αυτους και καταβητωσαν εις αδου ζωντες οτι πονηριαι εν ταις παροικιαις αυτων εν μεσω
  16. εγω δε προς τον θεον εκεκραξα και ο κυριος εισηκουσεν
  17. εσπερας και πρωι και μεσημβριας διηγησομαι απαγγελω και εισακουσεται της φωνης
  18. λυτρωσεται εν ειρηνη την ψυχην μου απο των εγγιζοντων μοι οτι εν πολλοις ησαν συν
  19. εισακουσεται ο θεος και ταπεινωσει αυτους ο υπαρχων προ των αιωνων διαψαλμα ου γαρ εστιν αυτοις ανταλλαγμα και ουκ εφοβηθησαν τον
  20. εξετεινεν την χειρα αυτου εν τω αποδιδοναι εβεβηλωσαν την διαθηκην
  21. διεμερισθησαν απο οργης του προσωπου αυτου και ηγγισεν η καρδια αυτου ηπαλυνθησαν οι λογοι αυτου υπερ ελαιον και αυτοι εισιν
  22. επιρριψον επι κυριον την μεριμναν σου και αυτος σε διαθρεψει ου δωσει εις τον αιωνα σαλον τω
  23. συ δε ο θεος καταξεις αυτους εις φρεαρ διαφθορας ανδρες αιματων και δολιοτητος ου μη ημισευσωσιν τας ημερας αυτων εγω δε ελπιω επι σε
Psalm 55 Text (Latin)
  1. In finem, in carminibus. Intellectus David.
  2. intende mihi, et exaudi me. Contristatus sum in exercitatione mea ; et conturbatus sum
  3. a voce inimici, et a tribulatione peccatoris. Quoniam declinaverunt in me iniquitates, et in ira molesti erant mihi.
  4. Cor meum conturbatum est in me, et formido mortis cecidit super me.
  5. Timor et tremor venerunt super me, et contexerunt me tenebræ.
  6. Et dixi : Quis dabit mihi pennas sicut columbæ, et volabo, et requiescam ?
  7. Ecce elongavi fugiens ; et mansi in solitudine.
  8. Exspectabam eum qui salvum me fecit a pusillanimitate spiritus, et tempestate.
  9. Præcipita, Domine, divide linguas eorum ; quoniam vidi iniquitatem et contradictionem in civitate.
  10. Die ac nocte circumdabit eam super muros ejus iniquitas ; et labor in medio ejus,
  11. et injustitia : et non defecit de plateis ejus usura et dolus.
  12. Quoniam si inimicus meus maledixisset mihi, sustinuissem utique. Et si is qui oderat me super me magna locutus fuisset, abscondissem me forsitan ab eo.
  13. Tu vero homo unanimis, dux meus, et notus meus ;
  14. qui simul mecum dulces capiebas cibos, in domo Dei ambulavimus cum consensu.
  15. Veniat mors super illos, et descendant in infernum viventes : quoniam nequitiæ in habitaculis eorum, in medio eorum.
  16. Ego autem ad Deum clamavi, et Dominus salvabit me.
  17. Vespere, et mane, et meridie, narrabo, et annuntiabo ; et exaudiet vocem meam.
  18. Redimet in pace animam meam ab his qui appropinquant mihi ; quoniam inter multos erant mecum.
  19. Exaudiet Deus, et humiliabit illos, qui est ante sæcula. Non enim est illis commutatio, et non timuerunt Deum.
  20. Extendit manum suam in retribuendo ; contaminaverunt testamentum ejus ;
  21. divisi sunt ab ira vultus ejus ; et appropinquavit cor illius. Molliti sunt sermones ejus super oleum ; et ipsi sunt jacula.
  22. Jacta super Dominum curam tuam, et ipse te enutriet ; non dabit in æternum fluctuationem justo.
  23. Tu vero, Deus, deduces eos in puteum interitus. Viri sanguinum et dolosi non dimidiabunt dies suos ; ego autem sperabo in te, Domine.
Psalm 55 Text (KJV)
  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.
