Psalms 57

To the Overseer. --`Destroy not.' --A secret treasure of David, in his fleeing from the face of Saul into a cave. Favour me, O God, favour me, For in Thee is my soul trusting, And in the shadow of Thy wings I trust, Until the calamities pass over. I call to God Most High, To God who is perfecting for me. He sendeth from the heaven, and saveth me, He reproached--who is panting after me. Selah. God sendeth forth His kindness and His truth. My soul is in the midst of lions, I lie down among flames--sons of men, Their teeth are a spear and arrows, And their tongue a sharp sword. Be Thou exalted above the heavens, O God, Above all the earth Thine honour. A net they have prepared for my steps, Bowed down hath my soul, They have digged before me a pit, They have fallen into its midst. Selah.

Prepared is my heart, O God, Prepared is my heart, I sing and praise. Awake, mine honour, awake, psaltery and harp, I awake the morning dawn. I thank Thee among the peoples, O Lord, I praise Thee among the nations. 10 For great unto the heavens is Thy kindness, And unto the clouds Thy truth. 11 Be thou exalted above the heavens, O God. Above all the earth Thine honour!
