Tehilim Chapter No 57

Tehilim 057

Translation

1. To the chief Musician, Altaschith, A Miktam of David, when he fled from Saul in the cave.
2. Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me, for my soul trusts in you; and in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge, until calamities have passed over.
3. I will cry to God most high; to God who performs all things for me.
4. He shall send from heaven, and save me; he scorns him who would swallow me up. Selah. God shall send forth his loving kindness and his truth.
5. My soul is among lions; and I lie down among those who are set on fire, the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.
6. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be above all the earth.
7. They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down; they dug a pit before me, and into its midst they have fallen themselves. Selah.
8. My heart is constant, O God, my heart is constant; I will sing and give praise.
9. Awake up, O my glory! Awake, O lyre and harp! I will awake the dawn!
10. I will praise you, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing to you among the nations.
11. For your loving kindness is great to the heavens, and your truth to the clouds.
12. Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let your glory be above all the earth.
