57 lBe merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me,
for in you my soul mtakes refuge;
in nthe shadow of your wings I will take refuge,
otill the storms of destruction pass by.
to God who pfulfills his purpose for me.
3 qHe will send from heaven and save me;
he will put to shame rhim who tramples on me. Selah
4 My soul is in the midst of ulions;
the children of man, whose vteeth are spears and arrows,
whose wtongues are sharp swords.
5 xBe exalted, O God, above the heavens!
6 They set ya net for my steps;
my soul was zbowed down.
They adug a pit in my way,
Awake, fO harp and lyre!
10 For your gsteadfast love is great to the heavens,
11 xBe exalted, O God, above the heavens!
