Chapter 56

1

 

  Be merciful to me, God, for man wants to swallow me up. All day long, he attacks and oppresses me.  

 

 


2

 

  My enemies want to swallow me up all day long, For they are many who fight proudly against me.  

 

 


3

 

  When I am afraid, I will put my trust in you.  

 

 


4

 

  In God, I praise his word. In God, I put my trust. I will not be afraid. What can flesh do to me?  

 

 


5

 

  All day long they twist my words. All their thoughts are against me for evil.  

 

 


6

 

  They conspire and lurk, Watching my steps, they are eager to take my life.  

 

 


7

 

  Shall they escape by iniquity? In anger cast down the peoples, God.  

 

 


8

 

  You number my wanderings. You put my tears into your bottle. Aren't they in your book?  

 

 


9

 

  Then shall my enemies turn back in the day that I call. I know this, that God is for me.  

 

 


10

 

  In God, I will praise his word. In Yahweh, I will praise his word.  

 

 


11

 

  I have put my trust in God. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?  

 

 


12

 

  Your vows are on me, God. I will give thank offerings to you.  

 

 


13

 

  For you have delivered my soul from death, And prevented my feet from falling, That I may walk before God in the light of the living. Psalm 57 For the Chief Musician. To the tune of 'Do Not Destroy.' A poem by David, when he fled from Saul, in the cave.
