Psalms 57

Studie

           |

1 To the victor, al-tashcheth*; a michtam* of David, when he ran·​·away from the face of Saul into the cave.
2 Be·​·gracious·​·to me, O God, be·​·gracious·​·to me;
for in Thee my soul confides;
and in the shadow of Thy wings will I have·​·confidence,
until calamities be passed.

2 3 I will call to God Most·​·High,
to God who brings· it ·to·​·an·​·end for me;

3 4 He will send from the heavens and save me when he who would gulp· me ·down reproaches me. Selah.
God will send His mercy and His truth.

4 5 As to my soul, I lie in the midst of old·​·lions;
the sons of man are inflamed,
their teeth are spear and arrows,
and their tongue a sharp sword.

5 6 Be Thou exalted above the heavens, O God;
above all the earth, Thy glory.

6 7 They have prepared a net for my footsteps;
my soul bows·​·low;
they have dug·​·out a ditch before me;
they are fallen into the midst of it. Selah.

7 8 My heart is prepared, O God, my heart is prepared;
I will sing, and I will sing·​·psalms.

8 9 Stir·​·up, my glory,
Stir·​·up, the psaltery and harp;
I will stir·​·up the dawn.

9 10 I will confess Thee among the peoples, O Lord;
I will sing·​·psalms to Thee among the nations.

10 11 For great even·​·to the heavens is Thy mercy,
and even·​·to ethers, Thy truth.

11 12 Be Thou exalted above the heavens, O God;
above all the earth, Thy glory.
