Psalm 56

56:1 To the Overseer. --`On the Dumb Dove far off.' --A secret treasure of David, in the Philistines' taking hold of him in Gath. Favour me, O God, for man swallowed me up, All the day fighting he oppresseth me, 56:2 Mine enemies have swallowed up all the day, For many [are] fighting against me, O most High, 56:3 The day I am afraid I am confident toward Thee. 56:4 In God I praise His word, in God I have trusted, I fear not what flesh doth to me. 56:5 All the day they wrest my words, Concerning me all their thoughts [are] for evil, 56:6 They assemble, they hide, they watch my heels, When they have expected my soul. 56:7 By iniquity they escape, In anger the peoples put down, O God.  56:8 My wandering Thou hast counted, Thou--place Thou my tear in Thy bottle, Are they not in Thy book 56:9 Then turn back do mine enemies in the day I call. This I have known, that God [is] for me. 56:10 In God I praise the word, In Jehovah I praise the word. 56:11 In God I trusted, I fear not what man doth to me, 56:12 On me, O God, [are] Thy vows, I repay thank-offerings to Thee. 56:13 For Thou hast delivered my soul from death, Dost Thou not my feet from falling To walk habitually before God in the light of the living!
