Chapter 56

1

 

 To the chief Musician upon Jonathelemrechokim, Michtam of David, when the Philistines took him in Gath. Be merciful unto me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth me. 

 

 


2

 

 Mine enemies would daily swallow [me] up: for [they be] many that fight against me, O thou most High. 

 

 


3

 

 What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee. 

 

 


4

 

 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me. 

 

 


5

 

 Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts [are] against me for evil. 

 

 


6

 

 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul. 

 

 


7

 

 Shall they escape by iniquity? in [thine] anger cast down the people, O God. 

 

 


8

 

 Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: [are they] not in thy book? 

 

 


9

 

 When I cry [unto thee], then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God [is] for me. 

 

 


10

 

 In God will I praise [his] word: in the LORD will I praise [his] word. 

 

 


11

 

 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me. 

 

 


12

 

 Thy vows [are] upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee. 

 

 


13

 

 For thou hast delivered my soul from death: [wilt] not [thou deliver] my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?
