View In My Bible

Prayer for Rescue from Persecutors.

1 Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me, For my soul 1takes refuge in You; And in the 2shadow of Your wings I will take refuge Until destruction 3passes by. 2 I will cry to God Most High, To God who 4accomplishes all things for me. 3 He will 5send from heaven and save me; He reproaches him who a6tramples upon me. bSelah. God will send forth His 7lovingkindness and His ctruth. 4 My soul is among 8lions; I must lie among those who breathe forth fire, Even the sons of men, whose 9teeth are spears and arrows And their 10tongue a sharp sword. 5 11Be exalted above the heavens, O God; Let Your glory be above all the earth. 6 They have dprepared a 12net for my steps; My soul is 13bowed down; They 14dug a pit before me; They themselves have 15fallen into the midst of it. Selah. 7 16My 17heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises! 8 Awake, 18my glory! Awake, 19harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn. 9 20I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to You among the enations. 10 For Your 21lovingkindness is great to the heavens And Your ftruth to the clouds. 11 22Be exalted above the heavens, O God; Let Your glory be above all the earth.
