Psalms 56

In God I Trust

To the choirmaster: according to The Dove on Far-off Terebinths. A a Miktam
Probably a musical or liturgical term
of David, when the c Philistines seized him in Gath.

d Be gracious to me, O God, for man e tramples on me;
all day long an attacker oppresses me;
my enemies trample on me all day long,
for many attack me proudly.
When I am afraid,
I f put my trust in you.
In God, whose word I praise,
in God I trust; g I shall not be afraid.
What can flesh do to me?
All day long they injure my cause;
Or  they twist my words

all their thoughts are against me for evil.
They i stir up strife, they j lurk;
they k watch my steps,
as they have waited for my life.
For their crime will they escape?
l In wrath m cast down the peoples, O God!
You have kept count of my tossings;
Or wanderings

o put my tears in your bottle.
p Are they not in your book?
Then my enemies will turn back
q in the day when I call.
This I know, that
Or because
s God is for me.
10 In God, whose word I praise,
in the  Lord, whose word I praise,
11 in God I trust; t I shall not be afraid.
What can man do to me?
12  I must perform my u vows to you, O God;
I will v render thank offerings to you.
13  w For you have delivered my soul from death,
yes, my feet from falling,
x that I may walk before God
y in the light of life.
