For the Musical Director.
To the tune of “Silent Dove in Distant Lands.”
An inscribed poem of David when the Philistines seized him in Gath.

 1 Be merciful to me, O God, for man wants to swallow me.

 All day long, he attacks and oppresses me.

 

 2 My enemies want to swallow me up all day long,

 for they are many who fight proudly against me.

 

 
3 
When I am afraid,

 I will put my trust in you.

 

 4 In God I praise his word.

 In God I put my trust. I will not be afraid.

 What can flesh do to me?

 

 
5 
All day long they twist my words.

 All their thoughts are against me for evil.

 

 6 They conspire and lurk;

 watching my steps,

 they are eager to take my life.

 

 7 Will they escape by iniquity?

 In anger, cast down the peoples, O God.

 

 
8 
You number my wanderings.

 You put my tears into your bottle.

 Aren’t they in your book?

 

 9 Then my enemies will turn back in the day that I call.

 I know this: that God is for me.

 

 
10 
In God I will praise his word.

 In Yahweh I will praise his word.

 

 11 I have put my trust in God. I will not be afraid.

 What can man do to me?

 

 
12 
Your vows are on me, O God.

 I will give thank offerings to you.

 

 13 For you have delivered my soul from death,

 and prevented my feet from falling,

 that I may walk before God in the light of the living.
