Psalms 56
New Living Translation
56[For the choir director: A psalm of David, regarding the time the Philistines seized him in Gath. To be sung to the tune “Dove on Distant Oaks.”] O God, have mercy on me, for people are hounding me. My foes attack me all day long.H5329H3128H4387H1732H6430H270H1661H2603H430H582H7602H3898H3117H3905 2I am constantly hounded by those who slander me, and many are boldly attacking me.H8324H3117H7602H7227H3898H4791 3But when I am afraid, I will put my trust in you.H3117H3372H982 4I praise God for what he has promised. I trust in God, so why should I be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me?H430H1984H1697H430H982H3372H1320H6213 5They are always twisting what I say; they spend their days plotting to harm me.H3117H6087H1697H4284H7451 6They come together to spy on me—watching my every step, eager to kill me.H1481H6845H6845H8104H6119H6960H5315 7Don’t let them get away with their wickedness; in your anger, O God, bring them down.H6405H205H639H3381H5971H430 8You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.H5608H5112H7760H1832H4997H5612 9My enemies will retreat when I call to you for help. This I know: God is on my side!H3117H7121H341H7725H268H3045H430 10I praise God for what he has promised; Yes, I praise the Lord for what he has promised.H430H1984H1697H3068H1984H1697 11I trust in God, so why should I be afraid? What can mere mortals do to me?H430H982H3372H120H6213 12I will fulfill my vows to you, O God, and will offer a sacrifice of thanks for your help.H5088H430H7999H8426 13For you have rescued me from death; you have kept my feet from slipping. So now I can walk in your presence, O God, in your life-giving light.H5337H5315H4194H7272H1762H1980H6440H430H216H2416
