Psalms 57

 

To the chief Musician, Altaschith, Michtam of David, when he fled from Saul in the cave.

1 Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: For my soul trusteth in thee:
Yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast.
2 I will cry unto God most high;
Unto God that performeth all things for me.
3 He shall send from heaven, and save me
From the reproach of him that would swallow me up.

Selah.

God shall send forth his mercy and his truth.
4 My soul is among lions:

And I lie even among them that are set on fire,
Even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.

5 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens;
Let thy glory be above all the earth.

6 They have prepared a net for my steps; My soul is bowed down:
They have digged a pit before me, into the midst whereof they are fallen themselves.

Selah.

7 My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed:
I will sing and give praise.
8 Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp:
I myself will awake early.
9 I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people:
I will sing unto thee among the nations.
10 For thy mercy is great unto the heavens,
And thy truth unto the clouds.

11 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens:
Let thy glory be above all the earth.
