Tehillim (Psalms) 56

Tehillim (Psalms) 56

1Show me favour, O Elohim, For man would swallow me up; Fighting all day long, he oppresses me.
2My enemies would swallow me up all day long, For many are fighting against me, O Most High.
3In the day I am afraid, I trust in You.
4In Elohim, whose Word I praise, In Elohim I have trusted; I do not fear; What could flesh do to me?
5All day long they twist my words; All their thoughts are against me for evil.
6They stir up strife, they hide, They watch my steps, As they lie in wait for my life.
7Because of wickedness, cast them out. Put down the peoples in displeasure, O Elohim!
8You have counted my wanderings; You put my tears into Your bottle; Are they not in Your book?
9My enemies turn back in the day I call; This I know, because Elohim is for me.
10In Elohim, whose Word I praise, In יהוה, whose Word I praise,
11In Elohim I have trusted; I do not fear; What could man do to me?
12On me, O Elohim, are Your vows; I render praises to You,
13For You have delivered my life from death, My feet from stumbling, That I might walk before Elohim, In the light of the living!
