Psalms 56

56
PSALM 56
Supplication for Rescue and Grateful Trust in God.
To the Chief Musician; set to [the tune of] “Silent Dove Among Those Far Away.” A Mikhtam of David. [A record of memorable thoughts] when the Philistines seized him in Gath.
1Be gracious to me, O God, for man has trampled on me;
All day long the adversary oppresses and torments me.
2My enemies have trampled upon me all day long,
For they are many who fight proudly against me.
3When I am afraid,
I will put my trust and faith in You.
4In God, whose word I praise;
In God I have put my trust;
I shall not fear.
What can mere man do to me?
5All day long they twist my words and say hurtful things;
All their thoughts are against me for evil.
6They attack, they hide and lurk,
They watch my steps,
As they have [expectantly] waited to take my life.
7Cast them out because of their wickedness.
In anger bring down the peoples, O God!
8You have taken account of my wanderings;
Put my tears in Your bottle.
Are they not recorded in Your book?
9Then my enemies will turn back in the day when I call;
This I know, that God is for me.
10In God, whose word I praise,
In the Lord, whose word I praise,
11In God have I put my trust and confident reliance; I will not be afraid.
What can man do to me?
12Your vows are binding upon me, O God;
I will give thank offerings to You.
13For You have rescued my soul from death,
Yes, and my feet from stumbling,
So that I may walk before God
In the light of life.
