Psalms



The second book of Psalms, song 57, New English Translation

Psalm 57


   For the music director; according to the al-tashcheth style; a prayer of David, written when he fled from Saul into the cave.
   1 Have mercy on me, O God! Have mercy on me! For in you I have taken shelter. In the shadow of your wings I take shelter until trouble passes.
   2 I cry out for help to the sovereign God, to the God who vindicates me.
   3 May he send help from heaven and deliver me from my enemies who hurl insults! (Selah) May God send his loyal love and faithfulness!
   4 I am surrounded by lions; I lie down among those who want to devour me; men whose teeth are spears and arrows, whose tongues are a sharp sword.
   5 Rise up above the sky, O God! May your splendor cover the whole earth!
   6 They have prepared a net to trap me; I am discouraged. They have dug a pit for me. They will fall into it! (Selah)
   7 I am determined, O God! I am determined! I will sing and praise you!
   8 Awake, my soul! Awake, O stringed instrument and harp! I will wake up at dawn!
   9 I will give you thanks before the nations, O Master! I will sing praises to you before foreigners!
   10 For your loyal love extends beyond the sky, and your faithfulness reaches the clouds.
   11 Rise up above the sky, O God! May your splendor cover the whole earth!
