For the choir director; according to yonath elem rechokim;[a] a miktam by David when the Philistines captured him in Gath.
1 Have pity on me, O God, because people are harassing me. All day long warriors oppress me. 2 All day long my enemies spy on me. They harass me. There are so many fighting against me. 3 Even when I am afraid, I still trust you.
4 I praise God’s word. I trust God. I am not afraid. What can mere flesh and blood do to me?
5 All day long my enemies twist my words. Their every thought is an evil plan against me. 6 They attack, and then they hide. They watch my every step as they wait to take my life. 7 With the wrong they do, can they escape? O God, angrily make the nations fall. 8 (You have kept a record of my wanderings. Put my tears in your bottle. They are already in your book.) 9 Then my enemies will retreat when I call to you. This I know: God is on my side.
10 I praise God’s word. I praise the Lord’s word. 11 I trust God. I am not afraid. What can mortals do to me?
12 I am bound by my vows to you, O God. I will keep my vows by offering songs of thanksgiving to you. 13 You have rescued me from death. You have kept my feet from stumbling so that I could walk in your presence, in the light of life.
