In God I Trust

To the choirmaster: according to The Dove on Far-off Terebinths. A (A)Miktam[a] of David, when the (B)Philistines seized him in Gath.

56 (C)Be gracious to me, O God, for man (D)tramples on me;
    all day long an attacker oppresses me;
my enemies trample on me all day long,
    for many attack me proudly.
When I am afraid,
    I (E)put my trust in you.
In God, whose word I praise,
    in God I trust; (F)I shall not be afraid.
    What can flesh do to me?

All day long they injure my cause;[b]
    all their thoughts are against me for evil.
They (G)stir up strife, they (H)lurk;
    they (I)watch my steps,
    as they have waited for my life.
For their crime will they escape?
    (J)In wrath (K)cast down the peoples, O God!

You have kept count of my tossings;[c]
    (L)put my tears in your bottle.
    (M)Are they not in your book?
Then my enemies will turn back
    (N)in the day when I call.
    This I know, that[d] (O)God is for me.
10 In God, whose word I praise,
    in the Lord, whose word I praise,
11 in God I trust; (P)I shall not be afraid.
    What can man do to me?

12 I must perform my (Q)vows to you, O God;
    I will (R)render thank offerings to you.
13 (S)For you have delivered my soul from death,
    yes, my feet from falling,
(T)that I may walk before God
    (U)in the light of life.

Let Your Glory Be over All the Earth

To the choirmaster: according to (V)Do Not Destroy. A (W)Miktam[e] of David, when he fled from Saul, in (X)the cave.

57 (Y)Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me,
    for in you my soul (Z)takes refuge;
in (AA)the shadow of your wings I will take refuge,
    (AB)till the storms of destruction pass by.
I cry out to God Most High,
    to God who (AC)fulfills his purpose for me.
(AD)He will send from heaven and save me;
    he will put to shame (AE)him who tramples on me. Selah
(AF)God will send out (AG)his steadfast love and his faithfulness!

My soul is in the midst of (AH)lions;
    I lie down amid fiery beasts—
the children of man, whose (AI)teeth are spears and arrows,
    whose (AJ)tongues are sharp swords.

(AK)Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!
    Let your glory be over all the earth!

They set (AL)a net for my steps;
    my soul was (AM)bowed down.
They (AN)dug a pit in my way,
    but they have fallen into it themselves. Selah
(AO)My heart is (AP)steadfast, O God,
    my heart is steadfast!
I will sing and make melody!
    (AQ)Awake, (AR)my glory![f]
Awake, (AS)O harp and lyre!
    I will awake the dawn!
I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples;
    I will sing praises to you among the nations.
10 For your (AT)steadfast love is great to the heavens,
    your faithfulness to the clouds.

11 (AU)Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!
    Let your glory be over all the earth!
