Psalm 57:1–11

Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me,

for in you I take refuge.j

I will take refuge in the shadow of your wingsk

until the disaster has passed.l

I cry out to God Most High,

to God, who vindicates me.m

He sends from heaven and saves me,n

rebuking those who hotly pursue me—c o

God sends forth his love and his faithfulness.p

I am in the midst of lions;q

I am forced to dwell among ravenous beasts—

men whose teeth are spears and arrows,

whose tongues are sharp swords.r

Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;

let your glory be over all the earth.s

They spread a net for my feett

I was bowed downu in distress.

They dug a pitv in my path—

but they have fallen into it themselves.w

My heart, O God, is steadfast,

my heart is steadfast;x

I will sing and make music.

Awake, my soul!

Awake, harp and lyre!y

I will awaken the dawn.

I will praise you, Lord, among the nations;

I will sing of you among the peoples.

10 For great is your love, reaching to the heavens;

your faithfulness reaches to the skies.z

11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;a

let your glory be over all the earth.b
