American Standard Version

Psalms 56

David, praying to God in confidence of his Word, complaineth of his enemies.

Psalms 56:1 {For the Chief Musician; set to Jonath elem rehokim. [A Psalm] of David. Michtam; when the Philistines took him in Gath.} Be merciful unto me, O God; for man would swallow me up: All the day long he fighting oppresseth me. Psalms 56:2 Mine enemies would swallow me up all the day long; For they are many that fight proudly against me. Psalms 56:3 What time I am afraid, I will put my trust in thee. Psalms 56:4 In God (I will praise his word), In God have I put my trust, I will not be afraid; What can flesh do unto me? Psalms 56:5 All the day long they wrest my words: All their thoughts are against me for evil. Psalms 56:6 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, They mark my steps, Even as they have waited for my soul. Psalms 56:7 Shall they escape by iniquity? In anger cast down the peoples, O God. Psalms 56:8 Thou numberest my wanderings: Put thou my tears into thy bottle; Are they not in thy book?

He professeth his confidence in God's Word, and promiseth to praise him.

Psalms 56:9 Then shall mine enemies turn back in the day that I call: This I know, that God is for me. Psalms 56:10 In God (I will praise [his] word), In Jehovah (I will praise [his] word), Psalms 56:11 In God have I put my trust, I will not be afraid; What can man do unto me? Psalms 56:12 Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render thank-offerings unto thee. Psalms 56:13 For thou hast delivered my soul from death: [Hast thou] not [delivered] my feet from falling, That I may walk before God In the light of the living?
