Psalm 57
Douay-Rheims Bible

My Soul Takes Refuge in You

(1 Samuel 22:1-5; Psalm 142:1-7)

1{56:1}Unto the end, destroy not, for David, for an inscription of a title, when he fled from Saul into the cave. [2] Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy on me: for my soul trusteth in thee. And in the shadow of thy wings will I hope, until iniquity pass away.

2{56:3}I will cry to God the most high; to God who hath done good to me.

3{56:4}He hath sent from heaven and delivered me: he hath made them a reproach that trod upon me. God hath sent his mercy and his truth,

4{56:5}And he hath delivered my soul from the midst of the young lions. I slept troubled. The sons of men, whose teeth are weapons and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.

5{56:6}Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens, and thy glory above all the earth.

6{56:7}They prepared a snare for my feet; and they bowed down my soul. They dug a pit before my face, and they are fallen into it.

7{56:8}My heart is ready, O God, my heart is ready: I will sing, and rehearse a psalm.

8{56:9}Arise, O my glory, arise psaltery and harp: I will arise early.

9{56:10}I will give praise to thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing a psalm to thee among the nations.

10{56:11}For thy mercy is magnified even to the heavens: and thy truth unto the clouds.

11{56:12}Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory above all the earth.
