Psalms Chapter 56 | Parsha:

1For the leader; on jonath elem rehokim. Of David. A michtam; when the Philistines seized him in Gath.

2Have mercy on me, O God,
for men persecute me;
all day long my adversary oppresses me.

3My watchful foes persecute me all day long;
many are my adversaries, O Exalted One.

4When I am afraid, I trust in You,

5in God, whose word I praise,
in God I trust;
I am not afraid;
what can mortals do to me?

6All day long they cause me grief in my affairs,
they plan only evil against me.

7They plot, they lie in ambush;
they watch my every move, hoping for my death.

8Cast them out for their evil;
subdue peoples in Your anger, O God.

9You keep count of my wanderings;
put my tears into Your flask,
into Your record.

10Then my enemies will retreat when I call on You;
this I know, that God is for me.

11In God, whose word I praise,
in the Lord, whose word I praise,

12in God I trust;
I am not afraid;
what can man do to me?

13I must pay my vows to You, O God;
I will render thank offerings to You.

14For You have saved me from death,
my foot from stumbling,
that I may walk before God in the light of life.
