In God I Trust
1For the music director: “A Silent Dove Far Away,” a Michtam of David, when the Philistines had seized him in Gath.
2Be gracious to me, O God! For man has crushed me, fighting all day he oppresses me.
3My foes trample me all day. For many are fighting me arrogantly.
4In a day when I am afraid, I will put my trust in You.
5In God—I keep praising His word— in God I trust, I will not fear. What can mere flesh do to me?
6All day they twist my words. All their thoughts are against me for evil.
7They stir up strife; they lie hidden. They mark my steps, eager to take my soul.
8In spite of such sin, will they escape? In fierce anger, O God, cast down such people!
9You have recorded my wanderings. You put my tears in Your bottle. Are they not in Your book?
10Then my enemies will turn back in the day I call. This I know—that God is for me.
11In God—I keep praising His word— in Adonai—I keep praising His word—
12in God I trust, I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?
13I am under vows to You, O God. I will present thank offerings to You.
14For You have delivered my soul from death and my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.
