Psalm 57

Prayer for Safety from Enemies

To the Chief Musician. Set to 1“Do Not Destroy.” a Michtam of David aWhen He Fled from Saul into the Cave.

1 Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me!

For my soul trusts in You;

bAnd in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge,

cUntil these calamities have passed by.

2 I will cry out to God Most High,

To God dwho performs all things for me.

3 eHe shall send from heaven and save me;

He reproaches the one who 2would swallow me up.

Selah

God fshall send forth His mercy and His truth.

4 My soul is among lions;

I lie among the sons of men

Who are set on fire,

gWhose teeth are spears and arrows,

And their tongue a sharp sword.

5 hBe exalted, O God, above the heavens;

Let Your glory be above all the earth.

6 iThey have prepared a net for my steps;

My soul is bowed down;

They have dug a pit before me;

Into the midst of it they themselves have fallen.

Selah

7 jMy heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast;

I will sing and give praise.

8 Awake, kmy glory!

Awake, lute and harp!

I will awaken the dawn.

9 lI will praise You, O Lord, among the peoples;

I will sing to You among the 3nations.

10 mFor Your mercy reaches unto the heavens,

And Your truth unto the clouds.

11 nBe exalted, O God, above the heavens;

Let Your glory be above all the earth.
