Psalm 57 Praise for God’s Protection For the choir director: “Do Not Destroy.”[H] A Davidic Miktam. When he fled before Saul into the cave. 57 1Be gracious to me, God, be gracious to me, for I take refuge in You. I will seek refuge in the shadow of Your wings until danger passes. 2I call to God Most High, to God who fulfills His purpose for me.[I] 3He reaches down from heaven and saves me, challenging the one who tramples me.Selah God sends His faithful love and truth. 4I am surrounded by lions; I lie down with those who devour men. Their teeth are spears and arrows; their tongues are sharp swords. 5God, be exalted above the heavens; let Your glory be over the whole earth. 6They prepared a net for my steps; I was despondent. They dug a pit ahead of me, but they fell into it!Selah 7My heart is confident, God, my heart is confident. I will sing; I will sing praises. 8Wake up, my soul![J] Wake up, harp and lyre! I will wake up the dawn. 9I will praise You, Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to You among the nations. 10For Your faithful love is as high as the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches the clouds. 11God, be exalted above the heavens; let Your glory be over the whole earth.
