Psalms 56

1To the chief Musician. On Jonathelem-rechokim. Of David. Michtam; when the Philistines took him in Gath. Be gracious unto me, O God; for man would swallow me up: all the day long fighting he oppresseth me. 2Mine enemies would swallow me up all the day long; for they are many that fight against me haughtily. 3In the day that I am afraid, I will confide in thee. 4In God will I praise his word, in God I put my confidence: I will not fear; what can flesh do unto 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, because they wait for my soul. 7Shall they escape by iniquity? In anger cast down the peoples, O God.

8*Thou* countest my wanderings; put my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book? 9Then shall mine enemies return backward in the day when I call: this I know, for God is for me. 10In God will I praise his word; in Jehovah will I praise his word. 11In God have I put my confidence: I will not fear; what can man do unto me? 12Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render thanks unto thee. 13For thou hast delivered my soul from death; wilt thou not keep my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?
