Psalm 57
Literal Standard Version Par ▾ 
1TO THE OVERSEER. “DO NOT DESTROY.” A MIKTAM OF DAVID, IN HIS FLEEING FROM THE FACE OF SAUL INTO A CAVE. Favor me, O God, favor me, || For my soul is trusting in You, || And I trust in the shadow of Your wings, || Until the calamities pass over.

2I call to God Most High, || To God [who] is perfecting for me.

3He sends from the heavens, and saves me, || He reproached [the one] who is panting after me. Selah. God sends forth His kindness and His truth.

4My soul [is] in the midst of lions, || I lie down [among] flames—sons of men, || Their teeth [are] a spear and arrows, || And their tongue a sharp sword.

5Be exalted above the heavens, O God, || Your glory above all the earth.

6They have prepared a net for my steps, || My soul has bowed down, || They have dug a pit before me, || They have fallen into its midst. Selah.

7My heart is prepared, O God, || My heart is prepared, || I sing and praise.

8Awake, my glory, awake, stringed instrument and harp, || I awake the morning dawn.

9I thank You among the peoples, O Lord, || I praise You among the nations.

10For Your kindness [is] great to the heavens, || And Your truth to the clouds.

11Be exalted above the heavens, O God. Your glory above all the earth!
