Psalm 57Common English Bible (CEB)

Psalm 57

For the music leader. Do not destroy. A miktam[a] of David, when he fled from Saul into the cave.

57 Have mercy on me, God;
    have mercy on me
    because I[b] have taken refuge in you.
    I take refuge
    in the shadow of your wings
        until destruction passes by.
I call out to God Most High—
    to God, who comes through for me.
He sends orders from heaven and saves me,
    rebukes the one who tramples me. Selah
        God sends his loyal love and faithfulness.

My life is in the middle of a pack of lions.
    I lie down among those who devour humans.
        Their teeth are spears and arrows;
        their tongues are sharpened swords.
Exalt yourself, God, higher than heaven!
    Let your glory be over all the earth!
They laid a net for my feet to bring me down;
    they dug a pit for me,
    but they fell into it instead! Selah

My heart is unwavering, God—
    my heart is unwavering.
I will sing and make music.
    Wake up, my glory!
    Wake up, harp and lyre!
    I will wake the dawn itself!
I will give thanks to you,
my Lord,
    among all the peoples;
I will make music to you among the nations
10     because your faithful love
        is as high as heaven;
    your faithfulness reaches the clouds.
11 Exalt yourself, God, higher than heaven!
    Let your glory be over all the earth!
