Psalm 56 NCV

1 God, be merciful to me because people are chasing me; the battle has pressed me all day long.
2 My enemies have chased me all day; there are many proud people fighting me.
3 When I am afraid, I will trust you.
4 I praise God for his word. I trust God, so I am not afraid. What can human beings do to me?
5 All day long they twist my words; all their evil plans are against me.
6 They wait. They hide. They watch my steps, hoping to kill me.
7 God, do not let them escape; punish the foreign nations in your anger.
8 You have recorded my troubles. You have kept a list of my tears. Aren't they in your records?
9 On the day I call for help, my enemies will be defeated. I know that God is on my side.
10 I praise God for his word to me; I praise the Lord for his word.
11 I trust in God. I will not be afraid. What can people do to me?
12 God, I must keep my promises to you. I will give you my offerings to thank you,
13 because you have saved me from death. You have kept me from being defeated. in light among the living.
