Psalm 56 WBT/NIV - Online Parallel Bible

The Webster Bible (WBT) New International Version (NIV)
1 To the chief Musician upon Jonathelem-rechokim, Michtam of David, when the Philistines took him in Gath. Be merciful to me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth me. 1 Be merciful to me, O God, for men hotly pursue me; all day long they press their attack.
2 My enemies would daily swallow [me] up: for [they are] many that fight against me, O thou Most High. 2 My slanderers pursue me all day long; many are attacking me in their pride.
3 In the time when I am afraid, I will trust in thee. 3 When I am afraid, I will trust in you.
4 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do to me. 4 In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can mortal man do to me?
5 Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts [are] against me for evil. 5 All day long they twist my words; they are always plotting to harm me.
6 They assemble themselves, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul. 6 They conspire, they lurk, they watch my steps, eager to take my life.
7 Shall they escape by iniquity; in [thy] anger cast down the people, O God. 7 On no account let them escape; in your anger, O God, bring down the nations.
8 Thou numberest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: [are they] not in thy book? 8 Record my lament; list my tears on your scroll-- are they not in your record?
9 When I cry [to thee], then shall my enemies turn back: this I know; for God [is] for me. 9 Then my enemies will turn back when I call for help. By this I will know that God is for me.
10 In God will I praise [his] word: in the LORD will I praise [his] word. 10 In God, whose word I praise, in the LORD, whose word I praise--
11 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do to me. 11 in God I trust; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?
12 Thy vows [are] upon me, O God: I will render praises to thee. 12 I am under vows to you, O God; I will present my thank offerings to you.
13 For thou hast delivered my soul from death: [wilt thou] not [deliver] my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living? 13 For you have delivered me from death and my feet from stumbling, that I may walk before God in the light of life.
