PSALM 56

« Psalm 55 | Psalm 56 | Psalm 57 »

In God I Trust
To the choirmaster: according to The Dove on Far-off Terebinths. A Miktam of David, when the Philistines seized him in Gath.
56:1
Be gracious to me, O God, for man tramples on me;
all day long an attacker oppresses me;
2
my enemies trample on me all day long,
for many attack me proudly.
3
When I am afraid,
I put my trust in you.
4
In God, whose word I praise,
in God I trust; I shall not be afraid.
What can flesh do to me?

5
All day long they injure my cause;
all their thoughts are against me for evil.
6
They stir up strife, they lurk;
they watch my steps,
as they have waited for my life.
7
For their crime will they escape?
In wrath cast down the peoples, O God!

8
You have kept count of my tossings;
put my tears in your bottle.
Are they not in your book?
9
Then my enemies will turn back
in the day when I call.
This I know, that God is for me.
10
In God, whose word I praise,
in the Lord, whose word I praise,
11
in God I trust; I shall not be afraid.
What can man do to me?

12
I must perform my vows to you, O God;
I will render thank offerings to you.
13
For you have delivered my soul from death,
yes, my feet from falling,
that I may walk before God
in the light of life.
