In God I Trust

Psalm 56

For the music director: “A Silent Dove Far Away,” a Michtam of David, when the Philistines had seized him in Gath.
Be gracious to me, O God!
For man has crushed me,
fighting all day he oppresses me.
My foes trample me all day.
For many are fighting me arrogantly.
In a day when I am afraid,
I will put my trust in You.
In God—I keep praising His word—
in God I trust, I will not fear.
What can mere flesh do to me?

All day they twist my words.
All their thoughts are against me for evil.
They stir up strife; they lie hidden.
They mark my steps, eager to take my soul.
In spite of such sin, will they escape?
In fierce anger, O God, cast down such people!
You have recorded my wanderings.
You put my tears in Your bottle.
Are they not in Your book?
10 Then my enemies will turn back in the day I call.
This I know—that God is for me.
11 In God—I keep praising His word—
in Adonai—I keep praising His word—
12 in God I trust, I will not be afraid.
What can man do to me?

13 I am under vows to You, O God.
I will present thank offerings to You.
14 For You have delivered my soul from death
and my feet from stumbling,
that I may walk before God in the light of life.
