Bible: Psalm 57
Psalm 57 1
Have mercy on me, O God! Have mercy on me!
For in you I have taken shelter. 5
In the shadow of your wings 6 I take shelter
until trouble passes.
57:2 I cry out for help to the sovereign God, 7
to the God who vindicates 8 me.
57:3 May he send help from heaven and deliver me 9
from my enemies who hurl insults! 10 (Selah)
May God send his loyal love and faithfulness!
57:4 I am surrounded by lions;
men whose teeth are spears and arrows,
whose tongues are a sharp sword. 13
57:5 Rise up 14 above the sky, O God!
May your splendor cover the whole earth! 15
57:6 They have prepared a net to trap me; 16
I am discouraged. 17
They have dug a pit for me. 18
They will fall 19 into it! (Selah)
57:7 I am determined, 20 O God! I am determined!
I will sing and praise you!
57:8 Awake, my soul! 21
Awake, O stringed instrument and harp!
I will wake up at dawn! 22
57:9 I will give you thanks before the nations, O Master!
I will sing praises to you before foreigners! 23
57:10 For your loyal love extends beyond the sky, 24
and your faithfulness reaches the clouds.
57:11 Rise up 25 above the sky, O God!
May your splendor cover the whole earth! 26
