Chapter 56

1

 {To the chief Musician. On Jonathelem-rechokim. Of David. Michtam; when the Philistines took him in Gath.} Be gracious unto me, O God; for man would swallow me up: all the day long fighting he oppresseth me. 

2

 Mine enemies would swallow [me] up all the day long; for they are many that fight against me haughtily. 

3

 In the day that I am afraid, I will confide in thee. 

4

 In God will I praise his word, in God I put my confidence: I will not fear; what can flesh do unto me? 

5

 All the day long they wrest my words; all their thoughts are against me for evil. 

6

 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves; they mark my steps, because they wait for my soul. 

7

 Shall they escape by iniquity? In anger cast down the peoples, O God. 

8

 Thou countest my wanderings; put my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book? 

9

 Then shall mine enemies return backward in the day when I call: this I know, for God is for me. 

10

 In God will I praise [his] word; in Jehovah will I praise [his] word. 

11

 In God have I put my confidence: I will not fear; what can man do unto me? 

12

 Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render thanks unto thee. 

13

 For thou hast delivered my soul from death; [wilt thou] not [keep] my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?
