Psalm 56
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1TO THE OVERSEER. [SET] ON “A SILENT DOVE FAR OFF.” A MIKTAM OF DAVID, IN THE PHILISTINES’ TAKING HOLD OF HIM IN GATH. Favor me, O God, for man swallowed me up, "" All the day fighting he oppresses me,

2My enemies have swallowed up all the day, "" For many [are] fighting against me, O Most High,

3[In] the day I am afraid I am confident toward You.

4In God I praise His word, in God I have trusted, "" I do not fear what flesh does to me.

5All the day they wrest my words, "" All their thoughts [are] for evil concerning me,

6They assemble, they hide, they watch my heels, "" When they have expected my soul.

7They escape by iniquity, "" In anger put down the peoples, O God.

8You have counted my wandering, "" You place my tear in Your bottle, "" Are they not in Your scroll?

9Then turn back my enemies in the day I call. This I have known, that God [is] for me.

10In God I praise the word, "" In YHWH I praise the word.

11In God I trusted, "" I do not fear what man does to me,

12On me, O God, [are] Your vows, "" I repay thank-offerings to You.

13For You have delivered my soul from death, "" Do You not [keep] my feet from falling? To habitually walk before God in the light of the living!
