Psalm 57

1  Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me, 
   for my soul takes refuge in you;
2  In the shadow of your wings will I take refuge 
   until the storm of destruction has passed by.
3  I will call upon the Most High God, 
   the God who fulfils his purpose for me.
4  He will send from heaven and save me
      and rebuke those that would trample upon me; 
   God will send forth his love and his faithfulness.
5  I lie in the midst of lions, 
   people whose teeth are spears and arrows,
      and their tongue a sharp sword.
6  Be exalted, O God, above the heavens, 
   and your glory over all the earth.
7  They have laid a net for my feet;
      my soul is pressed down; 
   they have dug a pit before me
      and will fall into it themselves.
8  My heart is ready, O God, my heart is ready; 
   I will sing and give you praise.
9  Awake, my soul; awake, harp and lyre, 
   that I may awaken the dawn.
10  I will give you thanks, O Lord, among the peoples; 
   I will sing praise to you among the nations.
11  For your loving-kindness is as high as the heavens, 
   and your faithfulness reaches to the clouds.
12  Be exalted, O God, above the heavens, 
   and your glory over all the earth.
