PSALM 56[U] Trust in God 56 1For the director. According to Yonath elem rehoqim.[V] A miktam of David, when the Philistines seized him at Gath. I 2Have mercy on me, God, for I am treated harshly; attackers press me all the day. 3My foes treat me harshly all the day; yes, many are my attackers. O Most High, 4when I am afraid, in you I place my trust. 5I praise the word of God; I trust in God, I do not fear. What can mere flesh do to me? II 6All the day they foil my plans; their every thought is of evil against me. 7They hide together in ambush; they watch my every step; they lie in wait for my life. 8They are evil; watch them, God! Cast the nations down in your anger! 9My wanderings you have noted; are my tears not stored in your flask,[W] recorded in your book? 10My foes turn back when I call on you. This I know: God is on my side. 11I praise the word of God, I praise the word of the LORD. 12In God I trust, I do not fear. What can man do to me? III 13I have made vows to you, God; with offerings I will fulfill them, 14For you have snatched me from death, kept my feet from stumbling, That I may walk before God in the light of the living.
