To the Chief Musician; set to [the tune of] “Do Not Destroy.” A Mikhtam of David. [A record of memorable thoughts of David] when he fled from Saul in the cave.
57 Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious and merciful to me, For my soul finds shelter and safety in You, And in the shadow of Your wings I will take refuge and be confidently secure Until destruction passes by. 2 I will cry to God Most High, Who accomplishes all things on my behalf [for He completes my purpose in His plan]. 3 He will send from heaven and save me; He calls to account him who tramples me down. Selah. God will send out His lovingkindness and His truth.
4 My life is among lions; I must lie among those who breathe out fire— The sons of men whose teeth are spears and arrows, And their tongue a sharp sword. 5 Be exalted above the heavens, O God; Let Your glory and majesty be over all the earth. 6 They [a]set a net for my steps; My very life was bowed down. They dug a pit before me; Into the midst of it they themselves have fallen. Selah.
7 My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast and confident! I will sing, yes, I will sing praises [to You]! 8 Awake, my glory! Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn. 9 I will praise and give thanks to You, O Lord, among the people; I will sing praises to You among the nations. 10 For Your faithfulness and lovingkindness are great, reaching to the heavens, And Your truth to the clouds. 11 Be exalted above the heavens, O God; Let Your glory and majesty be over all the earth.
