Psalm 57(A)

For the Music Director. To the melody of “Do Not Destroy.” A Miktam of David when he fled from Saul in the cave.

Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me!
    For my soul seeks refuge in You;
in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge,
    until the ruinous storm passes by.

I will cry to God Most High,
    to God who vindicates me.
He will send from heaven and save me
    from the taunt of the one who crushes me. Selah
    God will send forth His mercy and His truth.

My soul is among lions,
    and I lie among the sons of men who blaze like fire,
whose teeth are spears and arrows,
    and their tongue a sharp sword.

Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
    may Your glory be above all the earth.

They have prepared a net for my steps;
    my soul is bowed down;
they have dug a pit before me,
    but they have fallen into it. Selah

My heart is fixed, O God,
    my heart is fixed;
    I will sing and give praise.
Awake, my glory!
    Awake, psaltery and harp!
    I will awake the dawn.

I will thank You, O Lord, among the peoples;
    I will sing to You among the nations.
10 For Your mercy is great up to the heavens,
    and Your truth extends to the clouds.

11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;
    may Your glory be above all the earth.
