Psalms 561Be merciful to me, O God, for man would swallow me up. Fighting all the day long he oppresses me. 2My enemies would swallow me up all the day long, for they are many who fight proudly against me. 3What time I am afraid, I will put my trust in thee. 4In God I will praise his word. In God I have put my trust. I will not be afraid. What can flesh do to me? 5All the day long they wrest my words. All their thoughts are against me for evil. 6They gather themselves together. They hide themselves. They mark my steps, even as they have waited for my soul. 7Shall they escape by iniquity? In anger cast down the peoples, O God. 8Thou number my wanderings. Put thou my tears into thy bottle. Are they not in thy book? 9Then shall my enemies turn back in the day that I call. This I know, that God is for me. 10In God I will praise his word. In Jehovah I will praise his word. 11In God I have put my trust. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me? 12Thy vows are upon me, O God. I will render thank offerings to thee. 13For thou have delivered my soul from death, and my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living.
