2 56:1To the chief Musician upon Jonathelem-rechokim, Michtam of David, when the Philistines took him in Gath. Be merciful to me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth me.
3 56:2My enemies would daily swallow me up: for they are many that fight against me, O thou Most High.
4 56:3In the time when I am afraid, I will trust in thee.
5 56:4In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do to me.
6 56:5Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.
7 56:6They assemble themselves, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.
8 56:7Shall they escape by iniquity; in thy anger cast down the people, O God.
9 56:8Thou numberest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?
10 56:9When I cry to thee, then shall my enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.
11 56:10In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word.
12 56:11In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do to me.
13 56:12Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises to thee.
14 56:13For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt thou not deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?
