Be Exalted Over All the Earth
1For the music director, “Do Not Destroy,” a Michtam of David, when he fled from Saul, in the cave.
2Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me, for in You my soul takes refuge. In the shadow of Your wings I take refuge, until destruction passes by.
3I will cry out to El Elyon, to God who accomplishes it for me.
4He will send from heaven and save me. He rebukes the one trampling on me. Selah God is sending His mercy and His truth.
5My soul is in the midst of lions. I lie among those breathing fire— sons of men whose teeth are spears and arrows, whose tongue is a sharp sword.
6Be exalted, O God, above the heavens. Let Your glory be over all the earth!
7They spread a net for my steps, my soul is bowed down. They have dug a pit before me— they fell into it themselves. Selah
8My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast. I will sing, yes, I will make music.
9Awake, my glory! Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn.
10I will praise You, my Lord, among the peoples. I will sing praises to You among the nations.
11For Your lovingkindness is great up to the heavens, and Your truth to the skies.
12Be exalted, O God, above the heavens. Let Your glory be over all the earth!
