Psalm 56

1  Have mercy on me, O God, for they trample over me; ♦︎
   all day long they assault and oppress me.
2  My adversaries trample over me all the day long; ♦︎
   many are they that make proud war against me.
3  In the day of my fear I put my trust in you, ♦︎
   in God whose word I praise.
4  In God I trust, and will not fear, ♦︎
   for what can flesh do to me?
5  All day long they wound me with words; ♦︎
   their every thought is to do me evil.
6  They stir up trouble; they lie in wait; ♦︎
   marking my steps, they seek my life.
7  Shall they escape for all their wickedness? ♦︎
   In anger, O God, cast the peoples down.
8  You have counted up my groaning;
      put my tears into your bottle; ♦︎
   are they not written in your book?
9  Then shall my enemies turn back
      on the day when I call upon you; ♦︎
   this I know, for God is on my side.
10  In God whose word I praise,
      in the Lord whose word I praise, ♦︎
   in God I trust and will not fear:
      what can flesh do to me?
11  To you, O God, will I fulfil my vows; ♦︎
   to you will I present my offerings of thanks,
12  For you will deliver my soul from death
      and my feet from falling, ♦︎
   that I may walk before God in the light of the living.

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.
