Psalms 561 For the Chief Musician; set to ▼ Jonath elem rehokim. A Psalm of David. Michtam; when the Philistines took him in Gath. Be merciful unto me, O God; For man would swallow me up: All the day long he fighting oppresseth me. ▼
▼ 1) That is The silent dove of them that are afar off ; Or as otherwise read The dove of the distant terebinths2 ▼ Mine enemies would swallow me up all the day long; For they are many that fight proudly against me. ▼
▼ 1) Or They that lie in wait for me3 What time I am afraid, I will put my trust in thee. 4 In God (I will praise his word), In God have I put my trust, I will not be afraid; What can flesh do unto me? 5 All the day long they wrest my words: All their thoughts are against me for evil. 6 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, They mark my steps, ▼ Even as they have waited for my soul. ▼
▼ 1) Or Inasmuch as7 ▼ Shall they escape by iniquity? In anger cast down the peoples, O God. ▼
▼ 1) Or They think to escape8 Thou numberest my wanderings: Put thou my tears into thy bottle; Are they not in thy ▼ book? ▼
▼ 1) Or record9 Then shall mine enemies turn back in the day that I call: This I know, ▼ that God is for me. ▼
▼ 1) Or for10 In God (I will praise his word), In Jehovah (I will praise his word), 11 In God have I put my trust, I will not be afraid; What can man do unto me? 12 Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render thank-offerings unto thee. 13 For thou hast delivered my soul from death: Hast thou not delivered my feet from falling, That I may walk before God In the light of ▼ the living? ▼
▼ 1) Or life
