 Psalms << Ps : 54 >>The Septuagint (Brenton)

1 Εἰς τὸ τέλος, ἐν ὕμνοις· συνέσεως τῷ Δαυιδ. Lament in Persecution. Psalm 55(v54)For the end among Hymns of instruction by David.
2 Ἑνώτισαι, ὁ θεός,
τὴν προσευχὴν μου καὶ μὴ ὑπερίδῃς τὴν δέησίν μου,
 Listen O God to my prayer;
and disregard not my supplication.
3 πρόσχες μοι καὶ εἰσάκουσόν μου.
ἐλυπήθην ἐν τῇ ἀδολεσχίᾳ μου καὶ ἐταράχθην
 Attend to me, and listen to me:
I was grieved in my meditation, and troubled;
4 ἀπὸ φωνῆς ἐχθροῦ καὶ ἀπὸ θλίψεως ἁμαρτωλοῦ,
ὅτι ἐξέκλιναν ἐπ' ἐμὲ ἀνομίαν καὶ ἐν ὀργῇ ἐνεκότουν μοι.
 because of the voice of the enemy, and because of the oppression of the sinner:
for they brought iniquity against me, and were wrathfully angry with me.
5 ἡ καρδία μου ἐταράχθη ἐν ἐμοί,
καὶ δειλία θανάτου ἐπέπεσεν ἐπ' ἐμέ·
 My heart was troubled within me;
and the fear of death fell upon me.
6 φόβος καὶ τρόμος ἦλθεν ἐπ' ἐμέ,
καὶ ἐκάλυψέν με σκότος.
 Fear and trembling came upon me,
and darkness covered me.
7 καὶ εἶπα Τίς δώσει μοι πτέρυγας ὡσεὶ περιστερᾶς καὶ πετασθήσομαι καὶ καταπαύσω;
 And I said, O that I had wings as those of a dove! then would I flee away, and be at rest.
8 ἰδοὺ ἐμάκρυνα φυγαδεύων καὶ ηὐλίσθην ἐν τῇ ἐρήμῳ.
 Lo! I have fled afar off, and lodged in the wilderness.
9 προσεδεχόμην τὸν σῴζοντά με ἀπὸ ὀλιγοψυχίας καὶ καταιγίδος.
 I waited for him that should deliver me from distress of spirit and tempest.
10 καταπόντισον, κύριε, καὶ καταδίελε τὰς γλώσσας αὐτῶν,
ὅτι εἶδον ἀνομίαν καὶ ἀντιλογίαν ἐν τῇ πόλει.
 Destroy, O LORD, and divide their tongues:
for I have seen iniquity and gain saying in the city.
11 ἡμέρας καὶ νυκτὸς κυκλώσει αὐτὴν ἐπὶ τὰ τείχη αὐτῆς,
ἀνομία καὶ κόπος ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῆς καὶ ἀδικία,
 Day and night he shall go round about it upon its walls:
iniquity and sorrow and unrighteousness are in the midst of it;
12 καὶ οὐκ ἐξέλιπεν ἐκ τῶν πλατειῶν αὐτῆς τόκος καὶ δόλος.
 and usury and craft have not failed from its streets.
13 ὅτι εἰ ἐχθρὸς ὠνείδισέν με, ὑπήνεγκα ἄν,
καὶ εἰ ὁ μισῶν με ἐπ' ἐμὲ ἐμεγαλορρημόνησεν, ἐκρύβην ἂν ἀπ' αὐτοῦ.
 For if an enemy had reproached me, I would have endured it;
and if one who hated me had spoken vauntingly against me, I would have hid myself from him.
14 σὺ δέ, ἄνθρωπε ἰσόψυχε, ἡγεμών μου καὶ γνωστέ μου,
 But you, O man like minded, my guide, and my acquaintance,
15 ὃς ἐπὶ τὸ αὐτό μοι ἐγλύκανας ἐδέσματα,
ἐν τῷ οἴκῳ τοῦ θεοῦ ἐπορεύθημεν ἐν ὁμονοίᾳ·
 who in companionship with me sweetened our food:
we walked in the house of God in concord.
16 ἐλθέτω θάνατος ἐπ' αὐτούς, καὶ καταβήτωσαν εἰς ᾅδου ζῶντες·
ὅτι πονηρίαι ἐν ταῖς παροικίαις αὐτῶν ἐν μέσῳ αὐτῶν.
 Let death come upon them, and let them go down alive into Hades,
for iniquity is in their dwellings, in the midst of them.
17 ἐγὼ δὲ πρὸς τὸν θεὸν ἐκέκραξα, καὶ ὁ κύριος εἰσήκουσέν μου.
 I cried to God, and the Lord listened to me.
18 ἑσπέρας καὶ πρωῒ καὶ μεσημβρίας διηγήσομαι·
ἀπαγγελῶ, καὶ εἰσακούσεται τῆς φωνῆς μου.
 Evening, and morning, and at noon I will declare and make known my wants:
and he shall hear my voice.
19 λυτρώσεται ἐν εἰρήνῃ τὴν ψυχήν μου ἀπὸ τῶν ἐγγιζόντων μοι,
ὅτι ἐν πολλοῖς ἦσαν σὺν ἐμοί.
 He shall deliver my soul in peace from them that draw nigh to me:
for they were with me in many cases.
20 εἰσακούσεται ὁ θεὸς καὶ ταπεινώσει αὐτούς, ὁ ὑπάρχων πρὸ τῶν αἰώνων.
οὐ γάρ ἐστιν αὐτοῖς ἀντάλλαγμα,
καὶ οὐκ ἐφοβήθησαν τὸν θεόν.
 God shall hear, and bring them low, even he that has existed from eternity.
For they suffer no reverse,
and therefore they have not feared God.
21 ἐξέτεινεν τὴν χεῖρα αὐτοῦ ἐν τῷ ἀποδιδόναι·
ἐβεβήλωσαν τὴν διαθήκην αὐτοῦ.
 He has reached forth his hand for retribution;
they have profaned his covenant.
22 διεμερίσθησαν ἀπὸ ὀργῆς τοῦ προσώπου αὐτοῦ, καὶ ἤγγισεν ἡ καρδία αὐτοῦ·
ἡπαλύνθησαν οἱ λόγοι αὐτοῦ ὑπὲρ ἔλαιον, καὶ αὐτοί εἰσιν βολίδες.
 They were scattered at the anger of his countenance, and his heart drew nigh them.
His words were smoother than oil, yet are they darts.
23 ἐπίρριψον ἐπὶ κύριον τὴν μέριμνάν σου, καὶ αὐτός σε δια θρέψει·
οὐ δώσει εἰς τὸν αἰῶνα σάλον τῷ δικαίῳ.
 Cast your care upon the Lord, and he shall sustain you;
he shall never suffer the righteous to be moved.
24 σὺ δέ, ὁ θεός, κατάξεις αὐτοὺς εἰς φρέαρ διαφθορᾶς·
ἄνδρες αἱμάτων καὶ δολιότητος οὐ μὴ ἡμισεύσωσιν τὰς ἡμέρας αὐτῶν.
ἐγὼ δὲ ἐλπιῶ ἐπὶ σέ, Κύριε.
 But you, O God, shall bring them down to the pit of destruction;
bloody and crafty men shall not live out half their days;
but I will hope in you, O Lord.
