Psalm 57 GNT

1 Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful, because I come to you for safety. In the shadow of your wings I find protection until the raging storms are over.
2 I call to God, the Most High, to God, who supplies my every need.
3 He will answer from heaven and save me; he will defeat my oppressors. God will show me his constant love and faithfulness.
4 I am surrounded by enemies, who are like lions hungry for human flesh. Their teeth are like spears and arrows; their tongues are like sharp swords.
5 Show your greatness in the sky, O God, and your glory over all the earth.
6 My enemies have spread a net to catch me; I am overcome with distress. They dug a pit in my path, but fell into it themselves.
7 I have complete confidence, O God; I will sing and praise you!
8 Wake up, my soul! Wake up, my harp and lyre! I will wake up the sun.
9 I will thank you, O Lord, among the nations. I will praise you among the peoples.
10 Your constant love reaches the heavens; your faithfulness touches the skies.
11 Show your greatness in the sky, O God, and your glory over all the earth.
