Psalms 56

For the end, concerning the people that were removed from the sanctuary, by David for a memorial, when the Philistines caught him in Gath.

1 Have mercy upon me, O God; for man has trodden me down; all the day long his warring has afflicted me. 2My enemies have trodden me down all the day from the dawning of the day; for there are many warring against me. 3They shall be afraid, but I will trust in You. 4In God (I will praise His word); all the day long have I hoped in God; I will not fear; what shall man do to me? 5All the day long they have abominated my words; all their devices are against me for evil. 6They will dwell near and hide themselves; they will watch my steps, accordingly as I have waited patiently in my soul. 7You will by no means save them; You will bring down the people in wrath. 8O God, I have declared my life to You; You have set my tears before You, even according to Your promise. 9My enemies shall be turned back, in the day that I shall call upon You; behold, I know that You are my God. 10In God, (I will praise His word); in the Lord (I will praise His word). 11I have hoped in God; I will not be afraid; what shall man do to me? 12The vows of Your praise, O God, which I will pay, are upon me. 13For You have delivered my soul from death, and my feet from sliding, that I should be well-pleasing before God in the land of the living.
