Chapter 56

 

For the Chief Musician; set to Jonath elem rehokim. A Psalm of David. Michtam: when the Philistines took him in Gath.

1

Be merciful unto me, O Elohim; for man would swallow me up: All the day long he fighting oppresseth me.

2

Mine enemies would swallow me up all the day long; For they are many that fight proudly against me.

3

What time I am afraid, I will put my trust in thee.

4

In Elohim (I will praise his word), In Elohim have I put my trust, I will not be afraid; What can flesh do unto me?

5

All the day long they wrest my words: All their thoughts are against me for evil.

6

They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, They mark my steps, Even as they have waited for my soul.

7

Shall they escape by iniquity? In anger cast down the peoples, O Elohim.

8

Thou numberest my wanderings: Put thou my tears into thy bottle; Are they not in thy book?

9

Then shall mine enemies turn back in the day that I call: This I know, that Elohim is for me.

10

In Elohim (I will praise his word), In Yahweh (I will praise his word),

11

In Elohim have I put my trust, I will not be afraid; What can man do unto me?

12

Thy vows are upon me, O Elohim: I will render thank-offerings unto thee.

13

For thou hast delivered my soul from death: Hast thou not delivered my feet from falling, That I may walk before Elohim In the light of the living?
