Psalms 56:2 Myne enemies treade me daylie vnder their fete, for they be many, yt proudly fight agaynst me. Psalms 56:3 Neuerthelesse, whe I am afrayed, I put my trust in the. Psalms 56:4 I wil comforte my self in Gods worde, yee I wil hope in God, and not feare: What can flesh then do vnto me? Psalms 56:5 They vexe me daylie in my wordes: all yt they ymagin, is to do me euell. Psalms 56:6 They holde alltogether, & kepe them selues close: they marck my steppes, how they maye catch my soule. Psalms 56:7 But in vayne, for it shal escape the: and why? thou (o God) in thy displeasure shalt cast downe soch people. Psalms 56:8 Thou tellest my flittinges, thou puttest my teares in thy botell, and nombrest them.
He professeth his confidence in God's Word, and promiseth to praise him.
