Psalms Chapter 57 (Index)

001  To the chief Musician, Altaschith, Michtam of David, when he fled from Saul in the cave. Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast.

002  I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.

003  He shall send from heaven, and save me from the reproach of him that would swallow me up. Selah. God shall send forth his mercy and his truth.

004  My soul is among lions: and I lie even among them that are set on fire, even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.

005  Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; let thy glory be above all the earth.

006  They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down: they have digged a pit before me, into the midst whereof they are fallen themselves. Selah.

007  My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise.

008  Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.

009  I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto thee among the nations.

010  For thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds.

011  Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: let thy glory be above all the earth.
