Psalms 57

For the choir director: A psalm [1]  of David, regarding the time he fled from Saul and went into the cave. To be sung to the tune "Do Not Destroy!"
 1  "Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy! I look to you for protection. I will hide beneath the shadow of your wings until the danger passes by."  2  I cry out to God Most High, [2] 
  to God who will fulfill his purpose for me.
 3  He will send help from heaven to rescue me,
  disgracing those who hound me.    Interlude
My God will send forth his unfailing love and faithfulness.

 4  I am surrounded by fierce lions
  who greedily devour human prey—
whose teeth pierce like spears and arrows,
  and whose tongues cut like swords.

 5  Be exalted, O God, above the highest heavens!
  May your glory shine over all the earth.

 6  My enemies have set a trap for me.
  I am weary from distress.
They have dug a deep pit in my path,
  but they themselves have fallen into it.    Interlude

 7  My heart is confident in you, O God;
  my heart is confident.
  No wonder I can sing your praises!
 8  Wake up, my heart!
  Wake up, O lyre and harp!
  I will wake the dawn with my song.
 9  I will thank you, Lord, among all the people.
  I will sing your praises among the nations.
 10  For your unfailing love is as high as the heavens. Your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.  11  Be exalted, O God, above the highest heavens.
  May your glory shine over all the earth.
