Psalms 56

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

2  Mine enemies would daily swallow me up: for they be many that fight against me, O thou most High.

3  What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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