Psalms 57

57
PSALM 57
Prayer for Rescue from Persecutors.
To the Chief Musician; set to [the tune of] “Do Not Destroy.” A Mikhtam of David. [A record of memorable thoughts of David] when he fled from Saul in the cave.
1Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious and merciful to me,
For my soul finds shelter and safety in You,
And in the shadow of Your wings I will take refuge and be confidently secure
Until destruction passes by.
2I will cry to God Most High,
Who accomplishes all things on my behalf [for He completes my purpose in His plan].
3He will send from heaven and save me;
He calls to account him who tramples me down. Selah.
God will send out His lovingkindness and His truth.
4My life is among lions;
I must lie among those who breathe out fire—
The sons of men whose teeth are spears and arrows,
And their tongue a sharp sword.
5Be exalted above the heavens, O God;
Let Your glory and majesty be over all the earth.
6They #Or spread.set a net for my steps;
My very life was bowed down.
They dug a pit before me;
Into the midst of it they themselves have fallen. Selah.
7My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast and confident!
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises [to You]!
8Awake, my glory!
Awake, harp and lyre!
I will awaken the dawn.
9I will praise and give thanks to You, O Lord, among the people;
I will sing praises to You among the nations.
10For Your faithfulness and lovingkindness are great, reaching to the heavens,
And Your truth to the clouds.
11Be exalted above the heavens, O God;
Let Your glory and majesty be over all the earth.
