In God I Trust
To the choirmaster: according to The Dove on Far-off Terebinths. A pMiktam of David, when the qPhilistines seized him in Gath.
56 rBe gracious to me, O God, for man stramples on me;
all day long an attacker oppresses me;
2 my enemies trample on me all day long,
for many attack me proudly.
3 When I am afraid,
I tput my trust in you.
4 In God, whose word I praise,
in God I trust; uI shall not be afraid.
What can flesh do to me?
5 All day long they injure my cause;
all their thoughts are against me for evil.
6 They vstir up strife, they wlurk;
they xwatch my steps,
as they have waited for my life.
7 For their crime will they escape?
yIn wrath zcast down the peoples, O God!
8 You have kept count of my tossings;
aput my tears in your bottle.
bAre they not in your book?
9 Then my enemies will turn back
cin the day when I call.
This I know, that dGod is for me.
10 In God, whose word I praise,
in the Lord, whose word I praise,
11 in God I trust; uI shall not be afraid.
What can man do to me?
12 I must perform my evows to you, O God;
I will erender thank offerings to you.
13 fFor you have delivered my soul from death,
yes, my feet from falling,
gthat I may walk before God
hin the light of life.
