Chapter 56

1


 

  Unto the end, destroy not, for David, for an inscription of a title, when he fled from Saul into the cave  

 

 


2


 

  Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy on me: for my soul trusteth in thee. And in the shadow of thy wings will I hope, until iniquity pass away.  

 

 


3


 

  I will cry to God the most High; to God who hath done good to me.  

 

 


4


 

  He hath sent from heaven and delivered me: he hath made them a reproach that trod upon me. God hath sent his mercy and his truth,  

 

 


5


 

  and he hath delivered my soul from the midst of the young lions. I slept troubled. The sons of men, whose teeth are weapons and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.  

 

 


6


 

  Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens, and thy glory above all the earth.  

 

 


7


 

  They prepared a snare for my feet; and they bowed down my soul. They dug a pit before my face, and they are fallen into it.  

 

 


8


 

  My heart is ready, O God, my heart is ready: I will Sing, and rehearse a psalm.  

 

 


9


 

  Arise, O my glory, arise psaltery and harp: I will arise early.  

 

 


10


 

  I will give praise to thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing a psalm to thee among the nations.  

 

 


11


 

  For thy mercy is magnified even to the heavens: and thy truth unto the clouds.  

 

 


12


 

  Be thou exalted, O God, above the l heavens: and thy glory above all the earth.
