PSALM 56

Supplication for Deliverance and Grateful Trust in God.

For the choir director; according to Jonath elem rehokim. A Mikhtam of David, ^when the Philistines seized him in Gath.

1 Be gracious to me, O God, for man has 1atrampled upon me;

2Fighting all day long he boppresses me.

2 My foes have 1atrampled upon me all day long,

For 2they are many who bfight proudly against me.

3 1When I am aafraid,

2I will bput my trust in You.

4 aIn God, whose word I praise,

In God I have put my trust;

I shall not be afraid.

bWhat can mere 1man do to me?

5 All day long they 1adistort my words;

All their 2bthoughts are against me for evil.

6 They 1aattack, they lurk,

They bwatch my 2steps,

As they have cwaited to take my 3life.

7 Because of wickedness, 1acast them forth,

In anger bput down the peoples, O God!

8 You ahave taken account of my wanderings;

Put my btears in Your bottle.

Are they not in cYour book?

9 Then my enemies will aturn back bin the day when I call;

This I know, 1that cGod is for me.

10 In God, whose word I praise,

In the Lord, whose word I praise,

11 In God I have put my 1trust, I shall not be afraid.

What can man do to me?

12 Your avows are binding upon me, O God;

I will render thank offerings to You.

13 For You have adelivered my soul from death,

1Indeed bmy feet from stumbling,

So that I may cwalk before God

In the dlight of the 2living.

About New American Standard Bible: 1995 Update

The New American Standard Bible, long considered a favorite study Bible by serious students of the Scriptures, has been completely revised and updated in this new 1995 translation. Preserving the Lockman Foundation's standard of creating a literal translation of the original Greek, Hebrew, and Aramaic manuscripts, the 1995 NASB provides a literal translation that is very readable. Formalized language and outdated words and phrases have been replaced with their contemporary counterparts. In short, the 1995 NASB is a Bible translation that is very conducive to word-by-word study and is also able to be read (and understood) by the whole family.
