Record my misery; list my tears on your scroll — are they not in your record?
Read Psalm 56:8 Using Other Translations
Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?
You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book?
You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.
