    Psalm 56

    To the choirmaster: according to The Dove on Far-off Terebinths.

    A Miktam of David, when the Philistines seized him in Gath.

    1 Be gracious to me, O God, for man tramples on me;

        all day long an attacker oppresses me;

    2 my enemies trample on me all day long,

        for many attack me proudly.

    3 When I am afraid,

        I put my trust in you.

    4 In God, whose word I praise,

        in God I trust; I shall not be afraid.

        What can flesh do to me?

    5 All day long they injure my cause;

        all their thoughts are against me for evil.

    6 They stir up strife, they lurk;

        they watch my steps,

        as they have waited for my life.

    7 For their crime will they escape?

        In wrath cast down the peoples, O God!

    8 You have kept count of my tossings;

        put my tears in your bottle.

        Are they not in your book?

    9 Then my enemies will turn back

        in the day when I call.

        This I know, that God is for me.

    10 In God, whose word I praise,

        in the Lord, whose word I praise,

    11 in God I trust; I shall not be afraid.

        What can man do to me?

    12 I must perform my vows to you, O God;

        I will render thank offerings to you.

    13 For you have delivered my soul from death,

        yes, my feet from falling,

        that I may walk before God

    in the light of life.
