Amplified Bible

Psalm 56

Supplication for Rescue and Grateful Trust in God.

To the Chief Musician; set to [the tune of] “Silent Dove Among Those Far Away.” A Mikhtam of David. [A record of memorable thoughts] when the Philistines seized him in Gath.

1Be gracious to me, O God, for man has trampled on me;
All day long the adversary oppresses and torments me.

My enemies have trampled upon me all day long,
For they are many who fight proudly against me.

When I am afraid,
I will put my trust and faith in You.

In God, whose word I praise;
In God I have put my trust;
I shall not fear.
What can mere man do to me?

All day long they twist my words and say hurtful things;
All their thoughts are against me for evil.

They attack, they hide and lurk,
They watch my steps,
As they have [expectantly] waited to take my life.

Cast them out because of their wickedness.
In anger bring down the peoples, O God!


You have taken account of my wanderings;
Put my tears in Your bottle.
Are they not recorded in Your book?

Then my enemies will turn back in the day when I call;
This I know, that God is for me.
10 
In God, whose word I praise,
In the Lord, whose word I praise,
11 
In God have I put my trust and confident reliance; I will not be afraid.
What can man do to me?
12 
Your vows are binding upon me, O God;
I will give thank offerings to You.
13 
For You have rescued my soul from death,
Yes, and my feet from stumbling,
So that I may walk before God
In the light of life.

诗篇 56

信靠上帝的祷告

大卫作的诗,交给乐长,调用“远方无声鸽”,大卫在迦特被非利士人抓住时所作。

1上帝啊,求你怜悯我,
因为仇敌攻击我,整日迫害我。
我的仇敌整日攻击我,
许多人狂妄地迫害我。
我害怕的时候,
仍要倚靠你。
我赞美上帝的应许,
我信靠祂,就不惧怕,
区区世人能把我怎样?
他们整天歪曲我的话,
总是图谋害我。
他们勾结起来,
暗中监视我的行踪,
伺机害我。
上帝啊,
不要让这些作恶的人逃脱,
求你在怒中毁灭他们。
你知道我的哀伤,
你把我的眼泪收在袋中。
我的遭遇都记录在你的册子上。
我向你求救的时候,
敌人都落荒而逃。
我知道上帝是我的帮助。
10 我因上帝的应许而赞美祂,
我因耶和华的应许而赞美祂。
11 我信靠上帝,就不惧怕,
区区世人能把我怎样?
12 上帝啊,
我要恪守向你发的誓言,
献上感恩祭。
13 因为你救我脱离死亡,
使我没有跌倒,
让我可以活在你面前,
沐浴生命之光。
