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?
