Psalm 57
Darby Bible Translation

My Soul Takes Refuge in You

(1 Samuel 22:1-5; Psalm 142:1-7)

1{To the chief Musician. 'Destroy not.' Of David. Michtam; when he fled from Saul in the cave.} Be gracious unto me, O God, be gracious unto me; for my soul taketh refuge in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings do I take refuge, until the calamities be overpast.

2I will call unto God, the Most High; unto God that performeth [all] for me.

3He will send from the heavens and save me; he hath covered with reproach him that would swallow me up. Selah. God hath sent forth his loving-kindness and his truth.

4My soul is in the midst of lions; I lie down [among] them that breathe out flames, the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.

5Be exalted above the heavens, O God; let thy glory be above all the earth!

6They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul was bowed down: they have digged a pit before me; they are fallen into the midst thereof. Selah.

7My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing, yea, I will sing psalms.

8Awake, my glory; awake, lute and harp: I will wake the dawn.

9I will give thee thanks among the peoples, O Lord; of thee will I sing psalms among the nations:

10For thy loving-kindness is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds.

11Be exalted above the heavens, O God; let thy glory be above all the earth!
