Tehillim - Psalms 56


1For the Leader; upon Jonath-elem-rehokim. [A Psalm] of David; Michtam; when the Philistines took him in Gath.
2Be gracious unto me, O God, for man would swallow me up;All the day he fighting oppresseth me.
3They that lie in wait for me would swallow me up all the day;For they are many that fight against me, O Most High,
4In the day that I am afraid,I will put my trust in Thee.
5In God—I will praise His word—In God do I trust, I will not be afraid;What can flesh do unto me?
6All the day they trouble mine affairs;All their thoughts are against me for evil.
7They gather themselves together, they hide themselves,They mark my steps;According as they have waited for my soul.
8Because of iniquity cast them out;In anger bring down the peoples, O God.
9Thou has counted my wanderings;Put Thou my tears into Thy bottle;Are they not in Thy book?
10Then shall mine enemies turn back in the day that I call;This I know, that God is for me.
11In God—I will praise His word—In the Lord—I will praise His word—
12In God do I trust, I will not be afraid;What can man do unto me?
13Thy vows are upon me, O God;I will render thank-offerings unto Thee.
14For thou hast delivered my soul from death;Hast Thou not delivered my feet from stumbling?That I may walk before God in the light of the living?
