Psalm 56
Legacy Standard Bible►► 

In God I Trust, I Shall Not Be Afraid

For the choir director. According to [†]Jonath Elem Rehokim. A [†]Mikhtam of David. [†]When the Philistines seized him in Gath.

1Be gracious to me, O God, for man has [†]trampled upon me;

All day long, an attacker oppresses me.

2My foes have [†]trampled upon me all day long,

For many attack me proudly.

3[†]When I am afraid,

[†]I will trust in You.

4In God, whose word I praise,

In God I trust;

I shall not be afraid.

What can mere [†]man do to me?

5All day long they [†]distort my words;

All their [†]thoughts are against me for evil.

6They [†]attack, they lurk,

They watch my heels,

As they have hoped to take my [†]life.

7On account of their wickedness, will they have an escape?

In anger, bring down the peoples, O God!

8You have taken account of my wanderings;

Put my tears in Your bottle.

Are they not in Your book?

9Then my enemies will turn back in the day when I call;

This I know, [†]that God is for me.

10In God, whose word I praise,

In Yahweh, whose word I praise,

11In God I [†]trust, I shall not be afraid.

What can man do to me?

12Your vows are binding upon me, O God;

I will [†]fulfill thank offerings to You.

13[†]For You have delivered my soul from death,

Indeed my feet from stumbling,

So that I may walk before God

In the light of the [†]living.
