The Passion Translation
Song of the Steadfast
11 For the Pure and Shining One, by King David
1–2 Lord, don’t you hear
what my well-meaning friends keep saying to me:
“Run away while you can!
Fly away like a bird to hide in the mountains for safety.
For your enemies have prepared a trap for you!
They plan to destroy you with their slander and deceitful lies.
Can’t you see them hiding
in their place of darkness and shadows?
They’re set against you and all those who live upright lives.”
But don’t they know, Lord,
that I have made you my only hiding place?
Don’t they know that I always trust in you?
