Book of Psalms Chapter 55

PSALMS 55:1 Give ear to my prayer, O God; and hide not thyself from my supplication.

PSALMS 55:2 Attend unto me, and hear me: I mourn in my complaint, and make a noise;

PSALMS 55:3 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.

PSALMS 55:4 My heart is sore pained within me: and the terrors of death are fallen upon me.

PSALMS 55:5 Fearfulness and trembling are come upon me, and horror hath overwhelmed me.

PSALMS 55:6 And I said, Oh that I had wings like a dove! for then would I fly away, and be at rest.

PSALMS 55:7 Lo, then would I wander far off, and remain in the wilderness. Selah.

PSALMS 55:8 I would hasten my escape from the windy storm and tempest.

PSALMS 55:9 Destroy, O Lord, and divide their tongues: for I have seen violence and strife in the city.

PSALMS 55:10 Day and night they go about it upon the walls thereof: mischief also and sorrow are in the midst of it.

PSALMS 55:11 Wickedness is in the midst thereof: deceit and guile depart not from her streets.

PSALMS 55:12 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:

PSALMS 55:13 But it was thou, a man mine equal, my guide, and mine acquaintance.

PSALMS 55:14 We took sweet counsel together, and walked unto the house of God in company.

PSALMS 55:15 Let death seize upon them, and let them go down quick into hell: for wickedness is in their dwellings, and among them.

PSALMS 55:16 As for me, I will call upon God; and the LORD shall save me.

PSALMS 55:17 Evening, and morning, and at noon, will I pray, and cry aloud: and he shall hear my voice.

PSALMS 55:18 He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me: for there were many with me.

PSALMS 55:19 God shall hear, and afflict them, even he that abideth of old. Selah. Because they have no changes, therefore they fear not God.

PSALMS 55:20 He hath put forth his hands against such as be at peace with him: he hath broken his covenant.

PSALMS 55:21 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.

PSALMS 55:22 Cast thy burden upon the LORD, and he shall sustain thee: he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.

PSALMS 55:23 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.

History of the King James Bible

Meaning and pronunciation of Hebrew names in the Old Testament

Preface to the First Edition of the King James Bible

The bible and Zionism

The Bible, the Old Testament, has become a mainstay of human culture, but it is first and foremost a historical document of the Jewish people and our culture. It tells the story of our ancient kingdoms and civilization in the Land of Israel, and therefore it kept alive the tie of the people of Israel to the land of Israel for 2000 years. It forms the moral and cultural basis of Zionist ideology and aspirations.

The Bible, the Old Testament, is accepted by the three major Western faiths. It is a major work of Western civilization. The Bible documents the historic connection of the Jewish people to the land of Israel, even for those who do not believe that the Bible is the literal word of God, and even for those who do not believe in God at all. It is the historic epic of the Jewish people in our land.
