Amplified Bible

Psalm 57

Prayer for Rescue from Persecutors.

To the Chief Musician; set to [the tune of] “Do Not Destroy.” A Mikhtam of David. [A record of memorable thoughts of David] when he fled from Saul in the cave.

1Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious and merciful to me,
For my soul finds shelter and safety in You,
And in the shadow of Your wings I will take refuge and be confidently secure
Until destruction passes by.

I will cry to God Most High,
Who accomplishes all things on my behalf [for He completes my purpose in His plan].

He will send from heaven and save me;
He calls to account him who tramples me down. Selah.
God will send out His lovingkindness and His truth.


My life is among lions;
I must lie among those who breathe out fire—
The sons of men whose teeth are spears and arrows,
And their tongue a sharp sword.

Be exalted above the heavens, O God;
Let Your glory and majesty be over all the earth.

They [a]set a net for my steps;
My very life was bowed down.
They dug a pit before me;
Into the midst of it they themselves have fallen. Selah.


My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast and confident!
I will sing, yes, I will sing praises [to You]!

Awake, my glory!
Awake, harp and lyre!
I will awaken the dawn.

I will praise and give thanks to You, O Lord, among the people;
I will sing praises to You among the nations.
10 
For Your faithfulness and lovingkindness are great, reaching to the heavens,
And Your truth to the clouds.
11 
Be exalted above the heavens, O God;
Let Your glory and majesty be over all the earth.

Zabbuli 57

Ya Mukulu wa Bayimbi. Ku ddoboozi, “Tozikiriza.” Zabbuli ya Dawudi bwe yadduka Sawulo, n’alaga mu mpuku.

1Onsaasire, Ayi Katonda, onsaasire,
    kubanga neesiga ggwe.
Nzija kwekweka mu kisiikirize ky’ebiwaawaatiro byo
    okutuusa okuzikirira bwe kulikoma.

Nkoowoola Katonda Ali Waggulu Ennyo,
    Katonda atuukiriza bye yantegekera.
Alisinzira mu ggulu n’andokola,
    n’amponya abo abampalana.
    Katonda anandaganga obwesigwa bwe n’okwagala kwe okutaggwaawo.

Mbeera wakati mu mpologoma,
    nsula mu bisolo ebirya abaana b’abantu.
Amannyo g’abalabe bange gali ng’amafumu n’obusaale.
    Ennimi zaabwe ziri ng’ebitala ebyogi.

Ayi Katonda, ogulumizibwenga okusinga eggulu;
    n’ekitiibwa kyo kibune ensi yonna.

Baatega ekitimba mu kkubo lyange,
    ne ntya nnyo;
ne basimamu obunnya,
    ate bo bennyini ne babugwamu.

Omutima gwange munywevu, Ayi Katonda,
    omutima gwange munywevu.
    Nnaakutenderezanga n’ennyimba.
Zuukuka, ggwe omwoyo gwange!
    Zuukuka ggwe ennanga ey’enkoba, naawe entongooli,
    ndyoke nnyimbe okukeesa obudde.

Ayi Mukama, ndikwebaza mu mawanga;
    ndiyimba nga nkutendereza mu bantu.
10 Kubanga okwagala kwo kungi nnyo, kutuuka ne ku ggulu;
    n’obwesigwa bwo butuuka ku bire.

11 Ogulumizibwenga, Ayi Katonda, okusinga eggulu;
    n’ekitiibwa kyo kibune ensi yonna.
