Psalm 56 (New International Reader's Version)

View In My Bible

For the director of music. A psalm of David to be played on stringed instruments.

1 God, show me your favor. Men are chasing me. All day long they keep attacking me. 2 Those who tell lies about me chase me all day long. Many proud people are attacking me. 3 When I'm afraid, I will trust in you. 4 I trust in God. I praise his word. I trust in God. I will not be afraid. What can people do to me? 5 All day long they twist my words. They are always making plans to harm me. 6 They get together and hide. They watch my steps. They hope to kill me. 7 Make sure you don't let them escape. God, bring down the nations in your anger. 8 Write down my poem of sadness. List my tears on your scroll. Aren't you making a record of them? 9 My enemies will turn back when I call out to you for help. Then I will know that God is on my side. 10 I trust in God. I praise his word. I trust in the Lord. I praise his word. 11 I trust in God. I will not be afraid. What can mere men do to me? 12 God, I have made promises to you. I will bring my thank offerings to you. 13 You have saved me from death. You have kept me from tripping and falling. Now I can live with you in the light that leads to life.
