Psalm 56
Amplified Bible Par ▾ 

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.

2My enemies have trampled upon me all day long,

For they are many who fight proudly against me.

3When I am afraid,

I will put my trust and faith in You.

4In God, whose word I praise;

In God I have put my trust;

I shall not fear.

What can mere man do to me?

5All day long they twist my words and say hurtful things;

All their thoughts are against me for evil.

6They attack, they hide and lurk,

They watch my steps,

As they have [expectantly] waited to take my life.

7Cast them out because of their wickedness.

In anger bring down the peoples, O God!

8You have taken account of my wanderings;

Put my tears in Your bottle.

Are they not recorded in Your book?

9Then my enemies will turn back in the day when I call;

This I know, that God is for me.

10In God, whose word I praise,

In the LORD, whose word I praise,

11In God have I put my trust and confident reliance; I will not be afraid.

What can man do to me?

12Your vows are binding upon me, O God;

I will give thank offerings to You.

13For 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.
