Psalms 56

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

Psalms 56:1 {To him that excelleth. A Psalme of Dauid on Michtam, concerning the dumme doue in a farre countrey, when the Philistims tooke him in Gath.} Be mercifull vnto me, O God, for man would swallow me vp: he fighteth continually and vexeth me. Psalms 56:2 Mine enemies would dayly swallowe mee vp: for many fight against me, O thou most High. Psalms 56:3 When I was afrayd, I trusted in thee. Psalms 56:4 I will reioyce in God, because of his word, I trust in God, and will not feare what flesh can doe vnto me. Psalms 56:5 Mine owne wordes grieue me dayly: all their thoughtes are against me to doe me hurt. Psalms 56:6 They gather together, and keepe them selues close: they marke my steps, because they waite for my soule. Psalms 56:7 They thinke they shall escape by iniquitie: O God, cast these people downe in thine anger. Psalms 56:8 Thou hast counted my wandrings: put my teares into thy bottel: are they not in thy register?

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

Psalms 56:9 When I cry, then mine enemies shal turne backe: this I know, for God is with me. Psalms 56:10 I will reioyce in God because of his worde: in the Lord wil I reioyce because of his worde. Psalms 56:11 In God doe I trust: I will not be afrayd what man can doe vnto me. Psalms 56:12 Thy vowes are vpon me, O God: I will render prayses vnto thee. Psalms 56:13 For thou hast deliuered my soule from death, and also my feete from falling, that I may walke before God in the light of the liuing.
