56:1 {To the chief Musician. On Jonathelem-rechokim. Of David. Michtam; when the Philistines took him in Gath.} Be gracious unto me, O God; for man would swallow me up: all the day long fighting he oppresseth me.

56:2 Mine enemies would swallow [me] up all the day long; for they are many that fight against me haughtily.

56:3 In the day that I am afraid, I will confide in thee.

56:4 In God will I praise his word, in God I put my confidence: I will not fear; what can flesh do unto me?

56:5 All the day long they wrest my words; all their thoughts are against me for evil.

56:6 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves; they mark my steps, because they wait for my soul.

56:7 Shall they escape by iniquity? In anger cast down the peoples, O God.

56:8 *Thou* countest my wanderings; put my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?

56:9 Then shall mine enemies return backward in the day when I call: this I know, for God is for me.

56:10 In God will I praise [his] word; in Jehovah will I praise [his] word.

56:11 In God have I put my confidence: I will not fear; what can man do unto me?

56:12 Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render thanks unto thee.

56:13 For thou hast delivered my soul from death; [wilt thou] not [keep] my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?
