Douay-Rheims Bible

Deliver Me From My Enemies, My God

(1 Samuel 20:1-10)

1{58:1}Unto the end, destroy not, for David for an inscription of a title, when Saul sent and watched his house to kill him. [2] Deliver me from my enemies, O my God; and defend me from them that rise up against me.

2{58:3}Deliver me from them that work iniquity, and save me from bloody men.

3{58:4}For behold they have caught my soul: the mighty have rushed in upon me:

4{58:5}Neither is it my iniquity, nor my sin, O Lord: without iniquity have I run, and directed my steps.

5{58:6}Rise up thou to meet me, and behold: even thou, O Lord, the God of hosts, the God of Israel. Attend to visit all the nations: have no mercy on all them that work iniquity.

6{58:7}They shall return at evening, and shall suffer hunger like dogs: and shall go round about the city.

7{58:8}Behold they shall speak with their mouth, and a sword is in their lips: for who, say they, hath heard us?

8{58:9}But thou, O Lord, shalt laugh at them: thou shalt bring all the nations to nothing.

9{58:10}I will keep my strength to thee: for thou art my protector:

10{58:11}My God, his mercy shall prevent me.

11{58:12}God shall let me see over my enemies: slay them not, lest at any time my people forget. Scatter them by thy power; and bring them down, O Lord, my protector:

12{58:13}For the sin of their mouth, and the word of their lips: and let them be taken in their pride. And for their cursing and lying they shall be talked of,

13{58:14}When they are consumed: when they are consumed by thy wrath, and they shall be no more. And they shall know that God will rule Jacob, and all the ends of the earth.

14{58:15}They shall return at evening and shall suffer hunger like dogs: and shall go round about the city.

15{58:16}They shall be scattered abroad to eat, and shall murmur if they be not filled.

16{58:17}But I will sing thy strength: and will extol thy mercy in the morning. For thou art become my support, and my refuge, in the day of my trouble.

17{58:18}Unto thee, O my helper, will I sing, for thou art God my defence: my God my mercy.
