Psalm 56
1
Psalm 56 For the director of music. To [the tune of] "A Dove on Distant Oaks." Of David. A miktam. [1] When the Philistines had seized him in Gath.
1
Be merciful to me, O God, for men hotly pursue me; all day long they press their attack.
2
My slanderers pursue me all day long; many are attacking me in their pride.
3
When I am afraid, I will trust in you.
4
In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?
5
All day long they twist my words; they are always plotting to harm me.
6
They conspire, they lurk, they watch my steps, eager to take my life.
7
On no account let them escape; in your anger, O God, bring down the nations.
8
Record my lament; list my tears on your scroll [2] -- are they not in your record?
9
Then my enemies will turn back when I call for help. By this I will know that God is for me.
10
In God, whose word I praise, in the LORD, whose word I praise--
11
in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?
12
I am under vows to you, O God; I will present my thank offerings to you.
13
For you have delivered me [3] from death and my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.
