PSALM 57

« Psalm 56 | Psalm 57 | Psalm 58 »

Let Your Glory Be over All the Earth
To the choirmaster: according to Do Not Destroy. A Miktam of David, when he fled from Saul, in the cave.
57:1
Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me,
for in you my soul takes refuge;
in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge,
till the storms of destruction pass by.
2
I cry out to God Most High,
to God who fulfills his purpose for me.
3
He will send from heaven and save me;
he will put to shame him who tramples on me. Selah
God will send out his steadfast love and his faithfulness!

4
My soul is in the midst of lions;
I lie down amid fiery beasts—
the children of man, whose teeth are spears and arrows,
whose tongues are sharp swords.

5
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!
Let your glory be over all the earth!

6
They set a net for my steps;
my soul was bowed down.
They dug a pit in my way,
but they have fallen into it themselves. Selah
7
My heart is steadfast, O God,
my heart is steadfast!
I will sing and make melody!
8
Awake, my glory!
Awake, O harp and lyre!
I will awake the dawn!
9
I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples;
I will sing praises to you among the nations.
10
For your steadfast love is great to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the clouds.

11
Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!
Let your glory be over all the earth!
