Chapter 56

1


 

  To the chief music-maker; put to Jonath elem rehokim. Of David. Michtam. When the Philistines took him in Gath.
Have mercy on me, O God, for man is attempting my destruction; every day he makes cruel attacks against me.  

 

 


2


 

  My haters are ever ready to put an end to me; great numbers are lifting themselves up against me.  

 

 


3


 

  In the time of my fear, I will have faith in you.  

 

 


4


 

  In God will I give praise to his word; in God have I put my hope; I will have no fear of what flesh may do to me.  

 

 


5


 

  Every day they make wrong use of my words; all their thoughts are against me for evil.  

 

 


6


 

  They come together, they are waiting in secret places, they take note of my steps, they are waiting for my soul.  

 

 


7


 

  By evil-doing they will not get free from punishment. In wrath, O God, let the peoples be made low.  

 

 


8


 

  You have seen my wanderings; put the drops from my eyes into your bottle; are they not in your record?  

 

 


9


 

  When I send up my cry to you, my haters will be turned back; I am certain of this, for God is with me.  

 

 


10


 

  In God will I give praise to his word; in the Lord will I give praise to his word.  

 

 


11


 

  In God have I put my hope, I will have no fear of what man may do to me.  

 

 


12


 

  I keep the memory of my debt to you, O God; I will give you the offerings of praise.  

 

 


13


 

  Because you have taken my soul from the power of death; and kept my feet from falling, so that I may be walking before God in the light of life.
