Psalm 56:1-8 GNT

1 Be merciful to me, O God, because I am under attack; my enemies persecute me all the time.
2 All day long my opponents attack me. There are so many who fight against me.
3 When I am afraid, O Lord Almighty, I put my trust in you.
4 I trust in God and am not afraid; I praise him for what he has promised. What can a mere human being do to me?
5 My enemies make trouble for me all day long; they are always thinking up some way to hurt me!
6 They gather in hiding places and watch everything I do, hoping to kill me.
7 Punish a them, O God, for their evil; defeat those people in your anger!
