57:2 I cry out to God Most High, To God who accomplishes my requests for me.
57:3 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.
57:4 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.
57:5 Be exalted, God, above the heavens! Let your glory be above all the earth!
57:6 They have prepared a net for my steps. My soul is bowed down. They dig a pit before me. They fall into the midst of it themselves. Selah.
57:7 My heart is steadfast, God, my heart is steadfast. I will sing, yes, I will sing praises.
57:8 Wake up, my glory! Wake up, psaltery and harp! I will wake up the dawn.
57:9 I will give thanks to you, Lord, among the peoples. I will sing praises to you among the nations.
57:10 For your great loving kindness reaches to the heavens, And your truth to the skies.
57:11 Be exalted, God, above the heavens. Let your glory be over all the earth.
