Have mercy.
I run to you

In the shadow of your wings,
I seek protection
till danger dies down.
57 Chapter recording
List of all recordings of KJV
To the chief Musician, Altaschith, Michtam of David, when he fled from Saul in the cave.
Altaschith: or, Destroy not
1 Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast.
2 I pray to you, my protector.
2 I will cry unto God most high; unto God that performeth all things for me.
3 You will send help from heaven
and save me,
but you will bring trouble
on my attackers.
You are faithful,
and you can be trusted.
3 He shall send from heaven, and save me from the reproach of him that would swallow me up. Selah. God shall send forth his mercy and his truth.
from the...: or, he reproacheth him that

4 I live among lions,
who gobble down people!
They have spears and arrows
instead of teeth,
and they have sharp swords
instead of tongues.
4 My soul is among lions: and I lie even among them that are set on fire, even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.

5 May you, my God, be honored
above the heavens;
may your glory be seen
everywhere on earth.
5 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; let thy glory be above all the earth.

6 Enemies set traps for my feet
and struck me down.
They dug a pit in my path,
but fell in it themselves.
6 They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down: they have digged a pit before me, into the midst whereof they are fallen themselves. Selah.
7 I am faithful to you,
and you can trust me.
I will sing and play music
for you, my God.
7 My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise.
fixed: or, prepared
8 I feel wide awake!
I will wake up my harp
and wake up the sun.
8 Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.
9 I will praise you, Lord,
for everyone to hear,
and I will sing hymns to you
in every nation.
9 I will praise thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing unto thee among the nations.
10 Your love reaches higher
than the heavens;
your loyalty extends
beyond the clouds.
10 For thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds.

11 May you, my God, be honored
above the heavens;
may your glory be seen
everywhere on earth.
11 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: let thy glory be above all the earth.
