Chapter 56

1

For the Chief Musician; set to Jonath elem rehokim. [A Psalm] of David. Michtam: when the Philistines took him in Gath. Be merciful unto me, O God; for man would swallow me up: All the day long he fighting oppresseth me.

2

Mine enemies would swallow me up all the day long; For they are many that fight proudly against me.

3

What time I am afraid, I will put my trust in thee.

4

In God (I will praise his word), In God have I put my trust, I will not be afraid; What can flesh do unto me?

5

All the day long they wrest my words: All their thoughts are against me for evil.

6

They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, They mark my steps, Even as they have waited for my soul.

7

Shall they escape by iniquity? In anger cast down the peoples, O God.

8

Thou numberest my wanderings: Put thou my tears into thy bottle; Are they not in thy book?

9

Then shall mine enemies turn back in the day that I call: This I know, that God is for me.

10

In God (I will praise [his] word), In Jehovah (I will praise [his] word),

11

In God have I put my trust, I will not be afraid; What can man do unto me?

12

Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render thank-offerings unto thee.

13

For thou hast delivered my soul from death: [Hast thou] not [delivered] my feet from falling, That I may walk before God In the light of the living?
