Holman Christian Standard Bible
1For the choir director: "Do Not Destroy." A Davidic Miktam. When he fled before Saul into the cave. Be gracious to me, God, be gracious to me, for I take refuge in You. I will seek refuge in the shadow of Your wings until danger passes.
2I call to God Most High, to God who fulfills His purpose for me.
3He reaches down from heaven and saves me, challenging the one who tramples me. Selah God sends His faithful love and truth.
4I am surrounded by lions; I lie down with those who devour men. Their teeth are spears and arrows; their tongues are sharp swords.
5God, be exalted above the heavens; let Your glory be over the whole earth.
6They prepared a net for my steps; I was despondent. They dug a pit ahead of me, but they fell into it! Selah
7My heart is confident, God, my heart is confident. I will sing; I will sing praises.
8Wake up, my soul! Wake up, harp and lyre! I will wake up the dawn.
9I will praise You, Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to You among the nations.
10For Your faithful love is as high as the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches the clouds.
11God, be exalted above the heavens; let Your glory be over the whole earth.
