Psalms Chapter 56 - American Standard Version

1
(Psalm 56 For the Chief Musician; set to Jonath elem rehokim. [A Psalm] of David. Michtam: when the Philistines took him in Gath.)Be merciful unto me, O God; for man would swallow me up: All the day long he fighting oppresseth me.
2
Mine enemies would swallow me up all the day long; For they are many that fight proudly against me.
3
What time I am afraid, I will put my trust in thee.
4
In God (I will praise his word), In God have I put my trust, I will not be afraid; What can flesh do unto me?
5
All the day long they wrest my words: All their thoughts are against me for evil.
6
They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, They mark my steps, Even as they have waited for my soul.
7
Shall they escape by iniquity? In anger cast down the peoples, O God.
8
Thou numberest my wanderings: Put thou my tears into thy bottle; Are they not in thy book?
9
Then shall mine enemies turn back in the day that I call: This I know, that God is for me.
10
In God (I will praise [his] word), In Jehovah (I will praise [his] word),
11
In God have I put my trust, I will not be afraid; What can man do unto me?
12
Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render thank-offerings unto thee.
13
For thou hast delivered my soul from death: [Hast thou] not [delivered] my feet from falling, That I may walk before God In the light of the living?
