Praise for God's Protection

For the choir director: "Do Not Destroy." A Davidic Miktam. When he fled before Saul into the cave.

1 Be gracious to me, God, be gracious to me, for I take refuge in You. I will seek refuge in the shadow of Your wings until danger passes.
2 I call to God Most High, to God who fulfills [His purpose] for me.
3 He reaches down from heaven and saves me, challenging the one who tramples me. Selah God sends His faithful love and truth.
4 I am in the midst of lions; I lie down with those who devour men. Their teeth are spears and arrows; their tongues are sharp swords.
5 God, be exalted above the heavens; let Your glory be above the whole earth.
6 They prepared a net for my steps; I was downcast. They dug a pit ahead of me, but they fell into it! Selah
7 My heart is confident, God, my heart is confident. I will sing; I will sing praises.
8 Wake up, my soul! Wake up, harp and lyre! I will wake up the dawn.
9 I will praise You, Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to You among the nations.
10 For Your faithful love is as high as the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
11 God, be exalted above the heavens; let Your glory be over the whole earth.
