57:1 For the Leader; Al-tashheth. A Psalm of David; Michtam; when he fled from Saul, in the cave.

57:2 Be gracious unto me, O God, be gracious unto me, for in Thee hath my soul taken refuge; yea, in the shadow of Thy wings will I take refuge, until calamities be overpast.

57:3 I will cry unto God Most high; unto God that accomplisheth it for me.

57:4 He will send from heaven, and save me, when he that would swallow me up taunteth; Selah; God shall send forth His mercy and His truth.

57:5 My soul is among lions, I do lie down among them that are aflame; even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.

57:6 Be Thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; Thy glory be above all the earth.

57:7 They have prepared a net for my steps, my soul is bowed down; they have digged a pit before me, they are fallen into the midst thereof themselves. Selah

57:8 My heart is stedfast, O God, my heart is stedfast; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises.

57:9 Awake, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp; I will awake the dawn.

57:10 I will give thanks unto Thee, O L-rd, among the peoples; I will sing praises unto Thee among the nations.

57:11 For Thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and Thy truth unto the skies.

57:12 Be Thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; Thy glory be above all the earth.
