Chapter 56

1

  For the Chief Musician; set to Jonath elem rehokim. [A Psalm] of David. Michtam: when the Philistines took him in Gath. Be merciful unto me, O God; for man would swallow me up: All the day long he fighting oppresseth me. 

 


2

 Mine enemies would swallow me up all the day long; For they are many that fight proudly against me. 

 


3

 What time I am afraid, I will put my trust in thee. 

 


4

 In God (I will praise his word), In God have I put my trust, I will not be afraid; What can flesh do unto me? 

 


5

 All the day long they wrest my words: All their thoughts are against me for evil. 

 


6

 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, They mark my steps, Even as they have waited for my soul. 

 


7

 Shall they escape by iniquity? In anger cast down the peoples, O God. 

 


8

 Thou numberest my wanderings: Put thou my tears into thy bottle; Are they not in thy book? 

 


9

 Then shall mine enemies turn back in the day that I call: This I know, that God is for me. 

 


10

 In God (I will praise [his] word), In Jehovah (I will praise [his] word), 

 


11

 In God have I put my trust, I will not be afraid; What can man do unto me? 

 


12

 Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render thank-offerings unto thee. 

 


13

 For thou hast delivered my soul from death: [Hast thou] not [delivered] my feet from falling, That I may walk before God In the light of the living?
