Psalms 57
RV1885
57
For the Chief Musician; set to Al-tashheth. A Psalm of David: Michtam: When he fled from Saul, in the cave.
1Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me;
For my soul taketh refuge in thee:
Yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I take refuge,
Until these calamities be overpast.
2I will cry unto God Most High;
Unto God that performeth all things for me.
3He shall send from heaven, and save me,
When he that would swallow me up reproacheth; Selah
God shall send forth his mercy and his truth.
4My soul is among lions;
I lie among them that are set on fire,
Even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows,
And their tongue a sharp sword.
5Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens;
Let thy glory be above all the earth.
6They have prepared a net for my steps;
Thy soul is bowed down:
They have digged a pit before me;
They are fallen into the midst thereof themselves. Selah
7My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed:
I will sing, yea, I will sing praises.
8Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp:
I myself will awake right early.
9I will give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the peoples:
I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.
10For thy mercy is great unto the heavens,
And thy truth unto the skies.
11Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens;
Let thy glory be above all the earth.
