|Psalms 57 |
1 Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me, for my soul trusts in you; yes, I will make my refuge in the shadow of your wings until these calamities are past.
2 I will cry to God most high, to God who performs all things for me.
3 He shall send from heaven and save me from the reproach of those who would swallow me up. Selah. God shall send forth his mercy and his truth.
4 My soul is among lions; I lie among those who are set on fire, the sons of men whose teeth are spears and arrows, their tongues sharp swords.
5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth!
6 They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down. They have dug a pit in my way, but they have fallen into it themselves. Selah.
7 My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed! I will sing and give praise.
8 Awake, my glory [soul]; awake, lyre and harp. I myself will awake early.
9 I will praise you, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing to you among the nations.
10 For your mercy is great, reaching to the heavens, and your truth to the clouds.
11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth.
