For the end. Destroy not; by David, for a memorial, when he fled from the presence of Saul, to the cave.1 Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy on me; for my soul has trusted in You; and in the shadow of Your wings will I hope, until the iniquity has passed away. 2I will cry to God Most High; the God who has benefited me. Pause. 3He sent from heaven and saved me; He reproached them that trampled on me; God has sent forth His mercy and His truth; 4and He has delivered my soul from the midst of the lion's whelps; I lay down to sleep, though troubled. As for the sons of men, their teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword. 5Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; and Your glory above all the earth. 6They have prepared snares for my feet, and have bowed down my soul; they have dug a pit before my face, and fallen into it themselves. Pause. 7My heart, O God, is ready, my heart is ready; I will sing; yes, I will sing psalms. 8Awake, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp; I will awake early. 9O Lord, I will give thanks to You among the nations; I will sing to You among the Gentiles. 10For Your mercy has been magnified, even to the heavens, and Your truth to the clouds. 11Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; and Your glory above all the earth.
