Psalms 57

David in prayer fleeing unto God complaineth of his dangerous case.

Psalms 57:1 {For the Chief Musician; [set to] Al-tashheth. [A Psalm] of David. Michtam; when he fled from Saul, in the cave.} Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me; For my soul taketh refuge in thee: Yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I take refuge, Until [these] calamities be overpast. Psalms 57:2 I will cry unto God Most High, Unto God that performeth [all things] for me. Psalms 57:3 He will send from heaven, and save me, [When] he that would swallow me up reproacheth; Selah. God will send forth his lovingkindness and his truth. Psalms 57:4 My soul is among lions; I lie among them that are set on fire, Even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, And their tongue a sharp sword. Psalms 57:5 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; [Let] thy glory [be] above all the earth. Psalms 57:6 They have prepared a net for my steps; My soul is bowed down: They have digged a pit before me; They are fallen into the midst thereof themselves. Selah.

He encourageth himself to praise God.

Psalms 57:7 My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing, yea, I will sing praises. Psalms 57:8 Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake right early. Psalms 57:9 I will give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the peoples: I will sing praises unto thee among the nations. Psalms 57:10 For thy lovingkindness is great unto the heavens, And thy truth unto the skies. Psalms 57:11 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; [Let] thy glory [be] above all the earth.
