Psalm 57 New Life Version (NLV)
Prayer for Help
57 Show me loving-kindness, O God, show me loving-kindness. For my soul goes to You to be safe. And I will be safe in the shadow of Your wings until the trouble has passed. 2 I will cry to God Most High, to God Who finishes all things for me. 3 He will send from heaven and save me. He will put to shame him who is breaking me under his feet. God will send His loving-kindness and His truth.
4 My soul is among lions. I must lie among the sons of men who breathe fire, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and whose tongues are a sharp sword. 5 Be lifted up above the heavens, O God. Let Your shining-greatness be above all the earth. 6 They have set a net for my steps. My soul is brought down. They dug a deep hole in front of me. But they themselves have fallen into it.
7 My heart will not be moved, O God. My heart cannot be moved. I will sing, yes, I will sing praises! 8 Awake, my shining-greatness. Awake, harps. I will awake early in the morning. 9 O Lord, I will give thanks to You among the people. I will sing praises to You among the nations. 10 For Your loving-kindness is great to the heavens, and Your truth to the clouds. 11 Be lifted up above the heavens, O God. Let Your shining-greatness be above all the earth.

For the director of music. To the tune of “Do Not Destroy.” Of David. A miktam.[b] When he had fled from Saul into the cave.
1 Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me,
2 I cry out to God Most High,
4 I am in the midst of lions;
5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
6 They spread a net for my feet—
7 My heart, O God, is steadfast,
9 I will praise you, Lord, among the nations;
11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
