Psalm 56 King James Version

<< Psalm 55 | Psalm 56 | Psalm 57 >>

A Prayer of Trust

56 Be merciful unto me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth me. 2  Mine enemies [1] would daily swallow me up: for they be many that fight against me, O thou most High. 3  What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee. 4  In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me. 5  Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil. 6  They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul. 7  Shall they escape by iniquity? in thine anger cast down the people, O God.

8  Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book? 9  When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me. 10  In God will I praise his word: in the Lord will I praise his word. 11  In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me. 12  Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee. 13  For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?
