Psalm 57 American Standard Version

A Prayer for Rescue from Persecutors

57 Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me; For my soul taketh refuge in thee: Yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I take refuge, Until [these] calamities be overpast. 2  I will cry unto God Most High, Unto God that performeth [all things] for me. 3  He will send from heaven, and save me, [When] he that would swallow me up reproacheth; [Selah God will send forth his lovingkindness and his truth. 4  My soul is among lions; I lie among them that are set on fire, Even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, And their tongue a sharp sword. 5  Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; [Let] thy glory [be] above all the earth. 6  They have prepared a net for my steps; My soul is bowed down: They have digged a pit before me; They are fallen into the midst thereof themselves. [Selah]

7  My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing, yea, I will sing praises. 8  Awake up, my glory; Awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake right early. 9  I will give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the peoples: I will sing praises unto thee among the nations. 10  For thy lovingkindness is great unto the heavens, And thy truth unto the skies. 11  Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; [Let] thy glory [be] above all the earth.
