Psalms 56

Supplication for Deliverance and Grateful Trust in God.

For the choir director; according to
Or The silent dove of those who are far off, or, The dove of the distant terebinths
Jonath elem rehokim. A
Possibly Epigrammatic Poem, or Atonement Psalm
Mikhtam of David,
1 Sam 21:10, 11
when the Philistines seized him in Gath.

Be gracious to me, O God, for man has
Or snapped at
,
e trampled upon me;
Or A fighting man
Fighting all day long he g oppresses me.
My foes have
Or snapped at
,
i trampled upon me all day long,
For
Or many are fighting
they are many who k fight proudly against me.
Lit In the day
When I am m afraid,
Or I am one who puts
I will o put my trust in You.
p In God, whose word I praise,
In God I have put my trust;
I shall not be afraid.
q What can mere
Lit flesh
man do to me?
All day long they
Or trouble my affairs
,
t distort my words;
All their
Or purposes
,
v thoughts are against me for evil.
They
Or stir up strife
,
x attack, they lurk,
They y watch my
Lit heels
steps,
As they have aa waited to take my
Lit soul
life.
Because of wickedness
Or will they have escape?
,
ad cast them forth,
In anger ae put down the peoples, O God!

You af have taken account of my wanderings;
Put my ag tears in Your bottle.
Are they not in ah Your book?
Then my enemies will ai turn back aj in the day when I call;
This I know
Or because
that al God is for me.
10 In God, whose word I praise,
In the  Lord, whose word I praise,
11 In God I have put my
Or trust without fear
trust, I shall not be afraid.
What can man do to me?
12 Your an vows are binding upon me, O God;
I will render thank offerings to You.
13 For You have ao delivered my soul from death,
Or have You not delivered
Indeed aq my feet from stumbling,
So that I may ar walk before God
In the as light of the
Or life
living.
