Psalms 57

Previous Chapter | Next Chapter

 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.
