A Call for God's Protection

For the choir director: according to "A Silent Dove Far Away." A Davidic Miktam. When the Philistines seized him in Gath.

1 Be gracious to me, God, for man tramples me; he fights and oppresses me all day long. 2 My adversaries trample me all day, for many arrogantly fight against me.a 3 When I am afraid, I will trust in You. 4 In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not fear. What can man do to me?b 5 They twist my words all day long; all their thoughts are against me for evil. 6 They stir up strife,c they lurk; they watch my steps while they wait to take my life.d 7 Will they escape in spite of such sin? God, bring down the nations in wrath. 8 You Yourself have recorded my wanderings.e Put my tears in Your bottle. Are they not in Your records?
