For the choir director: according to “A Silent Dove Far Away.” A Miktam of David. When the Philistines seized him in Gath.k
he fights and oppresses me all day long.
I will trust in you.m
in God I trust; I will not be afraid.
What can mere mortals do to me?n
all their thoughts against me are evil.o
6 They stir up strife,B they lurk,
they watch my steps
while they wait to take my life.p
God, bring down the nations in wrath.q
8 You yourself have recorded my wanderings.C
Put my tears in your bottle.
Are they not in your book?r
9 Then my enemies will retreat on the day when I call.s
This I know: God is for me.t
in the Lord, whose word I praise,
What can mere humans do to me?u
12 I am obligated by vowsD to you, God;
I will make my thanksgiving sacrifices to you.v
even my feet from stumbling,
to walk before God in the light of life.w
Or many fight against me, O exalted one, or many fight against me from the heights
Or They attack
Lit On me the vows
