Psalm 57


Let Your Glory Be over All the Earth



 TO THE CHOIRMASTER: ACCORDING TO DO NOT DESTROY. A MIKTAM OF DAVID, WHEN HE FLED FROM SAUL, IN THE CAVE. 


      1 Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me, 

      for in you my soul takes refuge; 

      in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge, 

      till the storms of destruction pass by. 

      2 I cry out to God Most High, 

      to God who fulfills his purpose for me. 

      3 He will send from heaven and save me; 

      he will put to shame him who tramples on me. Selah 

      God will send out his steadfast love and his faithfulness! 


      4 My soul is in the midst of lions; 

      I lie down amid fiery beasts— 

      the children of man, whose teeth are spears and arrows, 

      whose tongues are sharp swords. 


      5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! 

      Let your glory be over all the earth! 


      6 They set a net for my steps; 

      my soul was bowed down. 

      They dug a pit in my way, 

      but they have fallen into it themselves. Selah 

      7 My heart is steadfast, O God, 

      my heart is steadfast! 

      I will sing and make melody! 

      8 Awake, my glory! 

      Awake, O harp and lyre! 

      I will awake the dawn! 

      9 I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples; 

      I will sing praises to you among the nations. 

      10 For your steadfast love is great to the heavens, 

      your faithfulness to the clouds. 


      11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! 

      Let your glory be over all the earth!
