Psalm 56

Jason Hemmings

1 Be gracious to me, O God, for man tramples on me;
all day long an attacker oppresses me;

my enemies trample on me all day long,
for many attack me proudly.

When I am afraid,
I put my trust in you.

In God, whose word I praise,
in God I trust; I shall not be afraid.
What can flesh do to me?

All day long they injure my cause;
all their thoughts are against me for evil.

They stir up strife, they lurk;
they watch my steps,
as they have waited for my life.

For their crime will they escape?
In wrath cast down the peoples, O God!

You have kept count of my tossings;
put my tears in your bottle.
Are they not in your book?

Then my enemies will turn back
in the day when I call.
This I know, that God is for me.

10 In God, whose word I praise,
in the Lord, whose word I praise,

11 in God I trust; I shall not be afraid.
What can man do to me?

12 I must perform my vows to you, O God;
I will render thank offerings to you.

13 For you have delivered my soul from death,
yes, my feet from falling,
that I may walk before God
in the light of life.
