Psalm 56

56
In God I Trust
To the choirmaster: according to The Dove on Far-off Terebinths. A #Ps. 16, title; 57, title Miktam#56:1 Probably a musical or liturgical term of David, when the #[1 Sam. 21:10, 11; 22:1]Philistines seized him in Gath.
1 # Ps. 57:1; See Ps. 4:1 Be gracious to me, O God, for man #Ps. 57:3tramples on me;
all day long an attacker oppresses me;
2my enemies trample on me all day long,
for many attack me proudly.
3When I am afraid,
I #See Ps. 11:1put my trust in you.
4In God, whose word I praise,
in God I trust; #Ps. 27:1; 118:6; Isa. 51:12; Heb. 13:6I shall not be afraid.
What can flesh do to me?
5All day long they injure my cause;#56:5 Or they twist my words
all their thoughts are against me for evil.
6They #Ps. 59:3; 140:2; Isa. 54:15 stir up strife, they #Ps. 10:8 lurk;
they #Ps. 71:10watch my steps,
as they have waited for my life.
7For their crime will they escape?
# Ps. 7:6; 59:5 In wrath #See Ps. 55:23cast down the peoples, O God!
8You have kept count of my tossings;#56:8 Or wanderings
# [Ps. 39:12; 2 Kgs. 20:5] put my tears in your bottle.
# [Mal. 3:16] Are they not in your book?
9Then my enemies will turn back
# Ps. 102:2 in the day when I call.
This I know, that#56:9 Or because #Ps. 118:6; [Rom. 8:31]God is for me.
10In God, whose word I praise,
in the Lord, whose word I praise,
11in God I trust; #[See ver. 4 above]I shall not be afraid.
What can man do to me?
12I must perform my #See Ps. 50:14vows to you, O God;
I will #See Ps. 50:14render thank offerings to you.
13 # Ps. 49:15; 116:8 For you have delivered my soul from death,
yes, my feet from falling,
# Ps. 116:9 that I may walk before God
# [Ps. 49:19] in the light of life.
