Psalm 57

Psalm 57

For the director of music. A miktam of David when he had run away from Saul into the cave. To the tune of “Do Not Destroy.”

Have mercy on me, God. Have mercy on me.
    I go to you for safety.
I will find safety in the shadow of your wings.
    There I will stay until the danger is gone.

I cry out to God Most High.
    I cry out to God, and he shows that I am right.
He answers from heaven and saves me.
    He puts to shame those who chase me.
    He shows his love and that he is faithful.

Men who are like lions are all around me.
    I am forced to lie down among people who are like hungry animals.
Their teeth are like spears and arrows.
    Their tongues are like sharp swords.

God, may you be honored above the heavens.
    Let your glory be over the whole earth.

My enemies spread a net to catch me by the feet.
    I felt helpless.
They dug a pit in my path.
    But they fell into it themselves.

God, my heart feels secure.
    My heart feels secure.
    I will sing and make music to you.
My spirit, wake up!
    Harp and lyre, wake up!
    I want to sing and make music before the sun rises.

Lord, I will praise you among the nations.
    I will sing about you among the people of the earth.
10 Great is your love. It reaches to the heavens.
    Your truth reaches to the skies.

11 God, may you be honored above the heavens.
    Let your glory be over the whole earth.
