Psalms 56

To the Overseer. --`On the Dumb Dove far off.' --A secret treasure of David, in the Philistines' taking hold of him in Gath. Favour me, O God, for man swallowed me up, All the day fighting he oppresseth me, Mine enemies have swallowed up all the day, For many are fighting against me, O most High, The day I am afraid I am confident toward Thee. In God I praise His word, in God I have trusted, I fear not what flesh doth to me. All the day they wrest my words, Concerning me all their thoughts are for evil, They assemble, they hide, they watch my heels, When they have expected my soul. By iniquity they escape, In anger the peoples put down, O God.

My wandering Thou hast counted, Thou--place Thou my tear in Thy bottle, Are they not in Thy book? Then turn back do mine enemies in the day I call. This I have known, that God is for me. 10 In God I praise the word, In Jehovah I praise the word. 11 In God I trusted, I fear not what man doth to me, 12 On me, O God, are Thy vows, I repay thank-offerings to Thee. 13 For Thou hast delivered my soul from death, Dost Thou not my feet from falling? To walk habitually before God in the light of the living!
