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.

1 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.
2My 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.
3
Lit In the day
When I am m  afraid,
Or I am one who puts
I will o  put my trust in You.
4 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?
5All day long they
Or trouble my affairs
,
t  distort my words;
All their
Or purposes
,
v  thoughts are against me for evil.
6They
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.
7Because of wickedness
Or will they have escape?
,
ad  cast them forth,
In anger ae  put down the peoples, O God!

8You af  have taken account of my wanderings;
Put my ag  tears in Your bottle.
Are they not in ah  Your book?
9Then my enemies will ai  turn back aj  in the day when I call;
This I know
Or because
that al  God is for me.
10In God, whose word I praise,
In the  Lord, whose word I praise,
11In God I have put my
Or trust without fear
trust, I shall not be afraid.
What can man do to me?
12Your an  vows are binding upon me, O God;
I will render thank offerings to You.
13For 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.
