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 shall send from heaven, and save me, [when] he that would swallow me up reproacheth; [Selah] God shall send forth his mercy 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; thy 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 mercy 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.
