Chapter 56

1To the Overseer. -- `On the Dumb Dove far off.` -- A secret treasure of David, in the Philistines` taking hold of him in Gath. Favour me, O God, for man swallowed me up, All the day fighting he oppresseth me, 2Mine enemies have swallowed up all the day, For many [are] fighting against me, O most High, 3The day I am afraid I am confident toward Thee. 4In God I praise His word, in God I have trusted, I fear not what flesh doth to me. 5All the day they wrest my words, Concerning me all their thoughts [are] for evil, 6They assemble, they hide, they watch my heels, When they have expected my soul. 7By iniquity they escape, In anger the peoples put down, O God. 8My wandering Thou hast counted, Thou -- place Thou my tear in Thy bottle, Are they not in Thy book? 9Then turn back do mine enemies in the day I call. This I have known, that God [is] for me. 10In God I praise the word, In Jehovah I praise the word. 11In God I trusted, I fear not what man doth to me, 12On me, O God, [are] Thy vows, I repay thank-offerings to Thee. 13For Thou hast delivered my soul from death, Dost Thou not my feet from falling? To walk habitually before God in the light of the living!
