Psalm 56 (WEBP)

[1] Be merciful to me, God, for man wants to swallow me up. All day long, he attacks and oppresses me.
[2] My enemies want to swallow me up all day long, for they are many who fight proudly against me.
[3] When I am afraid, I will put my trust in you.
[4] In God, I praise his word. In God, I put my trust. I will not be afraid. What can flesh do to me?
[5] All day long they twist my words. All their thoughts are against me for evil.
[6] They conspire and lurk, watching my steps. They are eager to take my life.
[7] Shall they escape by iniquity? In anger cast down the peoples, God.
[8] You count my wanderings. You put my tears into your container. Aren’t they in your book?
[9] Then my enemies shall turn back in the day that I call. I know this: that God is for me.
[10] In God, I will praise his word. In Yahweh, I will praise his word.
[11] I have put my trust in God. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?
[12] Your vows are on me, God. I will give thank offerings to you.
[13] For you have delivered my soul from death, and prevented my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living.
