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.

詩篇 56

信靠上帝的禱告

大衛作的詩,交給樂長,調用「遠方無聲鴿」,大衛在迦特被非利士人抓住時所作。

1上帝啊,求你憐憫我,
因為仇敵攻擊我,整日迫害我。
我的仇敵整日攻擊我,
許多人狂妄地迫害我。
我害怕的時候,
仍要倚靠你。
我讚美上帝的應許,
我信靠祂,就不懼怕,
區區世人能把我怎樣?
他們整天歪曲我的話,
總是圖謀害我。
他們勾結起來,
暗中監視我的行蹤,
伺機害我。
上帝啊,
不要讓這些作惡的人逃脫,
求你在怒中毀滅他們。
你知道我的哀傷,
你把我的眼淚收在袋中。
我的遭遇都記錄在你的冊子上。
我向你求救的時候,
敵人都落荒而逃。
我知道上帝是我的幫助。
10 我因上帝的應許而讚美祂,
我因耶和華的應許而讚美祂。
11 我信靠上帝,就不懼怕,
區區世人能把我怎樣?
12 上帝啊,
我要恪守向你發的誓言,
獻上感恩祭。
13 因為你救我脫離死亡,
使我沒有跌倒,
讓我可以活在你面前,
沐浴生命之光。
