Psalms 57

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

Psalms 57:1 {To the chief Musician. 'Destroy not.' Of David. Michtam; when he fled from Saul in the cave.} Be gracious unto me, O God, be gracious unto me; for my soul taketh refuge in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings do I take refuge, until the calamities be overpast. Psalms 57:2 I will call unto God, the Most High; unto *God that performeth [all] for me. Psalms 57:3 He will send from the heavens and save me; he hath covered with reproach him that would swallow me up. Selah. God hath sent forth his loving-kindness and his truth. Psalms 57:4 My soul is in the midst of lions; I lie down [among] them that breathe out flames, the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword. Psalms 57:5 Be exalted above the heavens, O God; let thy glory be above all the earth! Psalms 57:6 They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul was bowed down: they have digged a pit before me; they are fallen into the midst thereof. 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 psalms. Psalms 57:8 Awake, my glory; awake, lute and harp: I will wake the dawn. Psalms 57:9 I will give thee thanks among the peoples, O Lord; of thee will I sing psalms among the nations: Psalms 57:10 For thy loving-kindness is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds. Psalms 57:11 Be exalted above the heavens, O God; let thy glory be above all the earth!
