Psalms 57

58 →
1

Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy! I look to you for protection. I will hide beneath the shadow of your wings until this violent storm is past.

2

I cry out to God Most High, to God who will fulfill his purpose for me.

3

He will send help from heaven to save me, rescuing me from those who are out to get me. My God will send forth his unfailing love and faithfulness.

4

I am surrounded by fierce lions who greedily devour human prey--whose teeth pierce like spears and arrows, and whose tongues cut like swords.

5

Be exalted, O God, above the highest heavens! May your glory shine over all the earth.

6

My enemies have set a trap for me. I am weary from distress. They have dug a deep pit in my path, but they themselves have fallen into it.

7

My heart is confident in you, O God; no wonder I can sing your praises!

8

Wake up, my soul! Wake up, O harp and lyre! I will waken the dawn with my song.

9

I will thank you, Lord, in front of all the people. I will sing your praises among the nations.

10

For your unfailing love is as high as the heavens. Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.

11

Be exalted, O God, above the highest heavens. May your glory shine over all the earth.
