Psalms 57

58 →
1

Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy on me, for in you my soul takes refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed.

2

I cry out to God Most High, to God, who fulfills {his purpose} for me.

3

He sends from heaven and saves me, rebuking those who hotly pursue me; Selah God sends his love and his faithfulness.

4

I am in the midst of lions; I lie among ravenous beasts- men 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 spread a net for my feet- I was bowed down in distress. They dug a pit in my path- but they have fallen into it themselves. Selah

7

My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and make music.

8

Awake, my soul! Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn.

9

I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations; I will sing of you among the peoples.

10

For great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies.

11

Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth.
