For the Chief Musician. To the tune of "Do Not Destroy." A poem by David, when he fled from Saul, in the cave.1 Be merciful to me, God, be merciful to me,
for my soul takes refuge in you.
Yes, in the shadow of your wings, I will take refuge,
until disaster has passed.
2I cry out to God Most High,
to God who accomplishes my requests for me.
3He will send from heaven, and save me,
he rebukes the one who is pursuing me.
God will send out his loving kindness and his truth.
4My soul is among lions.
I lie among those who are set on fire,
even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows,
and their tongue a sharp sword.
5Be exalted, God, above the heavens!
Let your glory be above all the earth!
6They have prepared a net for my steps.
My soul is bowed down.
They dig a pit before me.
They fall into its midst themselves.
7My heart is steadfast, God, my heart is steadfast.
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises.
8Wake up, my glory! Wake up, psaltery and harp!
I will wake up the dawn.
9I will give thanks to you, Lord, among the peoples.
I will sing praises to you among the nations.
10For your great loving kindness reaches to the heavens,
and your truth to the skies.
11Be exalted, God, above the heavens.
Let your glory be over all the earth.
