Psalm 56 (Complete Jewish Bible)

View In My Bible
1 For the leader. Set to "The Silent Dove in the Distance." By David; a mikhtam, when the P'lishtim captured him in Gat: Show me favor, God; for people are trampling me down -all day they fight and press on me. 2 Those who are lying in wait for me would trample on me all day. For those fighting against me are many. Most High, 3 when I am afraid, I put my trust in you. 4 In God - I praise his word -in God I trust; I have no fear; what can human power do to me? 5 All day long they twist my words; their only thought is to harm me. 6 They gather together and hide themselves, spying on my movements, hoping to kill me. 7 Because of their crime, they cannot escape; in anger, God, strike down the peoples. 8 You have kept count of my wanderings; store my tears in your water-skin -aren't they already recorded in your book? 9 Then my enemies will turn back on the day when I call; this I know: that God is for me. 10 In God - I praise his word -in ADONAI - I praise his word - 11 in God I trust; I have no fear; what can mere humans do to me? 12 God, I have made vows to you; I will fulfill them with thank offerings to you. 13 For you rescued me from death, you kept my feet from stumbling, so that I can walk in God's presence, in the light of life.
