Psalms Chapter 56 (Index)

001  To the chief Musician upon Jonathelemrechokim, Michtam of David, when the Philistines took him in Gath. Be merciful unto me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth me.

002  Mine enemies would daily swallow me up: for they be many that fight against me, O thou most High.

003  What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.

004  In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.

005  Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.

006  They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.

007  Shall they escape by iniquity? in thine anger cast down the people, O God.

008  Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?

009  When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.

010  In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word.

011  In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.

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

013  For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?
