Psalm 57
Brenton's Septuagint Translation Par ▾ 

In You My Soul Takes Refuge

1(56:1) For the end. Destroy not: by David, for a memorial, when he fled from the presence of Saul to the cave. Have mercy, upon me, O God, have mercy upon me: for my soul has trusted in thee: and in the shadow of thy wings will I hope, until the iniquity have passed away.

2(56:2) I will cry to God most high; the God who has benefited me. Pause.

3(56:3) He sent from heaven and saved me; he gave to reproach them that trampled on me: God has sent forth his mercy and his truth;

4(56:4) and he has delivered my soul from the midst of lions' whelps: I lay down to sleep, though troubled. As for the sons of men, their teeth are arms and missile weapons, and their tongue a sharp sword.

5(56:5) Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; and thy glory above all the earth.

6(56:6) They have prepared snares for my feet, and have bowed down my soul: they have dug a pit before my face, and fallen into it themselves. Pause.

7(56:7) My heart, O God, is ready, my heart is ready: I will sing, yea will sing psalms.

8(56:8) Awake, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I will awake early.

9(56:9) O Lord, I will give thanks to thee among the nations: I will sing to thee among the Gentiles.

10(56:10) For thy mercy has been magnified even to the heavens, and thy truth to the clouds.

11(56:11) Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; and thy glory above all the earth.
