Bible: Psalm 56:1-13
Psalm 56 1
Have mercy on me, O God, for men are attacking me! 5
56:2 Those who anticipate my defeat 8 attack me all day long.
56:3 When 11 I am afraid,
I trust in you.
56:4 In God – I boast in his promise 12 –
in God I trust, I am not afraid.
56:5 All day long they cause me trouble; 15
they make a habit of plotting my demise. 16
they watch my every step, 19
56:7 Because they are bent on violence, do not let them escape! 22
56:8 You keep track of my misery. 25
Put my tears in your leather container! 26
Are they not recorded in your scroll? 27
56:9 My enemies will turn back when I cry out to you for help; 28
I know that God is on my side. 29
56:10 In God – I boast in his promise 30 –
56:11 in God I trust, I am not afraid.
56:12 I am obligated to fulfill the vows I made to you, O God; 34
I will give you the thank-offerings you deserve, 35
56:13 when you deliver 36 my life from death.
You keep my feet from stumbling, 37
