Psalms Chapter 57 - New International Version

1. Psalm 57 For the director of music. [To the tune of] "Do Not Destroy." Of David. A [1] When he had fled from Saul into the cave.

1. Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy on me, for in you my soul takes refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed.

2. I cry out to God Most High, to God, who fulfills [his purpose] for me.

3. He sends from heaven and saves me, rebuking those who hotly pursue me; God sends his love and his faithfulness.

4. I am in the midst of lions; I lie among ravenous beasts-- men whose teeth are spears and arrows, whose tongues are sharp swords.

5. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth.

6. They spread a net for my feet-- I was bowed down in distress. They dug a pit in my path-- but they have fallen into it themselves.

7. My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and make music.

8. Awake, my soul! Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn.

9. I will praise you, O Lord, among the nations; I will sing of you among the peoples.

10. For great is your love, reaching to the heavens; your faithfulness reaches to the skies.

11. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be over all the earth.
