Psalms 57

PSALM 57

The LORD Rescues

To the director; do not utterly destroy; to David; for an inscription on a monument; in his running away from the face of Saul into the cave.

1Show mercy on me, O God, show mercy on me! For [3upon 4you 2yielded 1my soul]. And in the shadow of your wings I shall hope, until of which time [2should go by 1lawlessness]. 2I shall cry out to God the highest; the God benefiting me. 3He sent out from heaven, and he delivered me. He put [4unto 5scorn 1the ones 2trampling 3me]. [2sent out 1God] his mercy and his truth; 4and he rescued my soul from the midst of lion cubs. I went to bed being disturbed; the sons of men -- their teeth are weapons and arrows, and their tongue [2sword 1a sharp]. 5Be raised up high above the heavens, O God, and [2above 3all 4the 5earth 1your glory]! 6[2a snare 1They prepared] for my feet, and bent down my soul. They dug [2before 3my face 1a cesspool], and they fell into it. PAUSE. 7[2is prepared 1My heart], O God, [2is prepared 1my heart]. I will sing and I will strum in my glory. 8Awaken, my glory! Awaken, O psaltery and harp! I shall awaken at dawn. 9I will make acknowledgment to you among peoples, O  lord, I will strum to you among nations. 10For [2was magnified 3unto 4the 5heavens 1your mercy]; and [2unto 3the 4clouds 1your truth]. 11Be raised up high above the heavens, O God, and [2above 3all 4the 5earth 1your glory]!
