Psalms Chapter 57 | Parsha:

1For the leader; al tashheth. Of David. A michtam; when he fled from Saul into a cave.

2Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy on me,
for I seek refuge in You,
I seek refuge in the shadow of Your wings,
until danger passes.

3I call to God Most High,
to God who is good to me.

4He will reach down from heaven and deliver me:
God will send down His steadfast love;
my persecutor reviles. Selah.

5As for me, I lie down among man-eating lions
whose teeth are spears and arrows,
whose tongue is a sharp sword.

6Exalt Yourself over the heavens, O God,
let Your glory be over all the earth!

7They prepared a net for my feet to ensnare me;
they dug a pit for me,
but they fell into it. Selah.

8My heart is firm, O God;
my heart is firm;
I will sing, I will chant a hymn.

9Awake, O my soul!
Awake, O harp and lyre!
I will wake the dawn.

10I will praise You among the peoples, O Lord;
I will sing a hymn to You among the nations;

11for Your faithfulness is as high as heaven;
Your steadfastness reaches to the sky.

12Exalt Yourself over the heavens, O God,
let Your glory be over all the earth!
