Psalms Chapter 57 - New American Standard Bible

1. BE gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me, For my soul takes refuge in You; And in the shadow of Your wings I will take refuge Until destruction passes by.

2. I will cry to God Most High, To God who accomplishes all things for me.

3. He will send from heaven and save me; He reproaches him who [1] tramples upon me.

4. My soul is among lions; I must lie among those who breathe forth fire, Even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows And their tongue a sharp sword.

5. Be exalted above the heavens, O God; Let Your glory be above all the earth.

6. They have [2] prepared a net for my steps; My soul is bowed down; They dug a pit before me; They themselves have fallen into the midst of it.

7. My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises!

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

9. I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to You among the [3] nations.

10. For Your lovingkindness is great to the heavens And Your [4] truth to the clouds.

11. Be exalted above the heavens, O God; Let Your glory be above all the earth.
