Tehillim (Psalms) 57
1Show me favour, O Elohim, show me favour! For in You my being is taking refuge; And in the shadow of Your wings I take refuge, Until destruction passes by.
2I cry out to the Most High Elohim, To Ěl who is perfecting all matters for me.
3He sends from the heavens and saves me; He reproaches the one who would swallow me up. Selah. Elohim sends forth His loving-commitment and His truth.
4My being is in the midst of lions; I lie among those who breathe fire, Whose teeth are spears and arrows, And their tongue is a sharp sword.
5Be exalted, O Elohim, above the heavens; Let Your esteem be above all the earth.
6They have prepared a net for my footsteps; My being was bowed down; They have dug a pit before me; They fell into the midst of it! Selah.
7My heart is firm, O Elohim, My heart is firm; I sing and praise.
8Awake, my esteem! Awake, harp and lyre! I awake the dawn.
9I praise You among the peoples, O יהוה; I sing to You among the nations.
10For Your loving-commitment is great up to the heavens, And Your truth unto the clouds.
11Be exalted above the heavens, O Elohim; Let Your esteem be above all the earth.
