Psalm 56
Webster Bible Translation

Be Merciful to Me, God

(1 Samuel 21:10-15; Psalm 34:1-22; Psalm 52:1-9)

1To the chief Musician upon Jonathelem-rechokim, Michtam of David, when the Philistines took him in Gath. Be merciful to me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth me.

2My enemies would daily swallow me up: for they are many that fight against me, O thou Most High.

3In the time when I am afraid, I will trust in thee.

4In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do to me.

5Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.

6They assemble themselves, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.

7Shall they escape by iniquity; in thy anger cast down the people, O God.

8Thou numberest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?

9When I cry to thee, then shall my enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.

10In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word.

11In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do to me.

12Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises to thee.

13For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt thou not deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?
