Psalm 57

1 Of David. When he ran away from Saul into the cave.
Show me favor, O God, show me favor, For I take refuge in you, And in the shadow of your wings I take refuge until the troubles pass.

2 I call to God the Most High, To the true God, who brings them to an end for me.

3 He will send help from heaven and save me. He will frustrate the one snapping at me. God will send his loyal love and his faithfulness.

4 I am surrounded by lions; I must lie among men who want to devour me, Whose teeth are spears and arrows And whose tongue is a sharp sword.

5 Be exalted above the heavens, O God; May your glory be over all the earth.

6 They have prepared a net to ensnare my feet; I am bowed down with distress. They have dug a pit ahead of me, But they fell into it themselves.

7 My heart is steadfast, O God, My heart is steadfast. I will sing and make music.

8 Do awake, my glory. Do awake, O stringed instrument; you too, O harp. I will awaken the dawn.

9 I will praise you among the peoples, O Jehovah; I will sing praises to you among the nations.

10 For your loyal love is great, as high as the heavens, And your faithfulness, up to the skies.

11 Be exalted above the heavens, O God; May your glory be over all the earth.
