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,
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.
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.
Or stir up strife
x  attack, they lurk,
They y  watch my
Lit heels
As they have aa  waited to take my
Lit soul
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
