Chapter 56


 To the chief Musician upon Jonathelem-rechokim, Michtam of David, when the Philistines took him in Gath. Be merciful to me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth me.


 My enemies would daily swallow me up: for they are many that fight against me, O thou Most High.


 In the time when I am afraid, I will trust in thee.


 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do to me.


 Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.


 They assemble themselves, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.


 Shall they escape by iniquity; in thy anger cast down the people, O God.


 Thou numberest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?


 When I cry to thee, then shall my enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.


 In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word.


 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do to me.


 Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises to thee.


 For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt thou not deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?
