Psalm 57

[1]   Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me,
for in you my soul takes refuge;
in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge,
till the storms of destruction pass by.
[2]   I cry out to God Most High,
to God who fulfills his purpose for me.
[3]   He will send from heaven and save me;
he will put to shame him who tramples on me. Selah
God will send out this steadfast love and his faithfulness!

[4]   My soul is in the midst of lions;
I lie down amid fiery beasts—
the children of man, whose teeth are spears and arrows,
whose tongues are sharp swords.

[5]   Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!
Let your glory be over all the earth!

[6]   They set ya net for my steps;
my soul was bowed down.
They dug a pit in my way,
but they have fallen into it themselves. Selah
[7]   My heart is steadfast, O God,
my heart is steadfast!
I will sing and make melody!
[8]   Awake, my glory!
Awake, O harp and lyre!
I will awake the dawn!
[9]   I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples;
I will sing praises to you among the nations.
[10]   For your steadfast love is great to the heavens,
your faithfulness to the clouds.

[11]   Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!
Let your glory be over all the earth!
