Psalm 57 (WEBP)

[1] Be merciful to me, God, be merciful to me, for my soul takes refuge in you. Yes, in the shadow of your wings, I will take refuge, until disaster has passed.
[2] I cry out to God Most High, to God who accomplishes my requests for me.
[3] He will send from heaven, and save me, he rebukes the one who is pursuing me. Selah. God will send out his loving kindness and his truth.
[4] My soul is among lions. I lie among those who are set on fire, even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.
[5] Be exalted, God, above the heavens! Let your glory be above all the earth!
[6] They have prepared a net for my steps. My soul is bowed down. They dig a pit before me. They fall into the middle of it themselves. Selah.
[7] My heart is steadfast, God. My heart is steadfast. I will sing, yes, I will sing praises.
[8] Wake up, my glory! Wake up, lute and harp! I will wake up the dawn.
[9] I will give thanks to you, Lord, among the peoples. I will sing praises to you among the nations.
[10] For your great loving kindness reaches to the heavens, and your truth to the skies.
[11] Be exalted, God, above the heavens. Let your glory be over all the earth.

[1] «To the chief Musician H5329 (8764), Altaschith H516 (8686), Michtam H4387 of David H1732, when he fled H1272 (8800) from H6440 Saul H7586 in the cave H4631.» Be merciful H2603 (8798) unto me, O God H430, be merciful H2603 (8798) unto me: for my soul H5315 trusteth H2620 (8804) in thee: yea, in the shadow H6738 of thy wings H3671 will I make my refuge H2620 (8799), until [these] calamities H1942 be overpast H5674 (8799).
[2] I will cry H7121 (8799) unto God H430 most high H5945; unto God H410 that performeth H1584 (8802) [all things] for me.
[3] He shall send H7971 (8799) from heaven H8064, and save H3467 (8686) me [from] the reproach H2778 (8765) of him that would swallow me up H7602 (8802). Selah H5542. God H430 shall send forth H7971 (8799) his mercy H2617 and his truth H571.
[4] My soul H5315 [is] among H8432 lions H3833: [and] I lie H7901 (8799) [even among] them that are set on fire H3857 (8802), [even] the sons H1121 of men H120, whose teeth H8127 [are] spears H2595 and arrows H2671, and their tongue H3956 a sharp H2299 sword H2719.
[5] Be thou exalted H7311 (8798), O God H430, above the heavens H8064; [let] thy glory H3519 [be] above all the earth H776.
[6] They have prepared H3559 (8689) a net H7568 for my steps H6471; my soul H5315 is bowed down H3721 (8804): they have digged H3738 (8804) a pit H7882 before H6440 me, into the midst H8432 whereof they are fallen H5307 (8804) [themselves]. Selah H5542.
[7] My heart H3820 is fixed H3559 (8737), O God H430, my heart H3820 is fixed H3559 (8737): I will sing H7891 (8799) and give praise H2167 (8762).
[8] Awake up H5782 (8798), my glory H3519; awake H5782 (8798), psaltery H5035 and harp H3658: I [myself] will awake H5782 (8686) early H7837.
[9] I will praise H3034 (8686) thee, O Lord H136, among the people H5971: I will sing H2167 (8762) unto thee among the nations H3816.
[10] For thy mercy H2617 [is] great H1419 unto the heavens H8064, and thy truth H571 unto the clouds H7834.
[11] Be thou exalted H7311 (8798), O God H430, above the heavens H8064: [let] thy glory H3519 [be] above all the earth H776.

Young’s Literal Translation

Psalm 57 (YLT)

[1] Favour me, O God, favour me, For in Thee is my soul trusting, And in the shadow of Thy wings I trust, Until the calamities pass over.
[2] I call to God Most High, To God who is perfecting for me.
[3] He sendeth from the heaven, and saveth me, He reproached-who is panting after me. Selah. God sendeth forth His kindness and His truth.
[4] My soul is in the midst of lions, I lie down among flames-sons of men, Their teeth are a spear and arrows, And their tongue a sharp sword.
[5] Be Thou exalted above the heavens, O God, Above all the earth Thine honour.
[6] A net they have prepared for my steps, Bowed down hath my soul, They have digged before me a pit, They have fallen into its midst. Selah.
[7] Prepared is my heart, O God, Prepared is my heart, I sing and praise.
[8] Awake, mine honour, awake, psaltery and harp, I awake the morning dawn.
[9] I thank Thee among the peoples, O Lord, I praise Thee among the nations.
[10] For great unto the heavens is Thy kindness, And unto the clouds Thy truth.
[11] Be thou exalted above the heavens, O God. Above all the earth Thine honour!
