1Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me, For my soul takes refuge in You; And in the shadow of Your wings I will take refuge Until destruction passes by.
2I will cry to God Most High, To God who accomplishes [all things] for me.
3He will send from heaven and save me; He reproaches him who tramples upon me. Selah. God will send forth His lovingkindness and His truth.
4My soul is among lions; I must lie among those who breathe forth fire, [Even] the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows And their tongue a sharp sword.
5Be exalted above the heavens, O God; [Let] Your glory [be] above all the earth.
6They have prepared a net for my steps; My soul is bowed down; They dug a pit before me; They [themselves] have fallen into the midst of it. Selah.
7My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises!
8Awake, my glory! Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn.
9I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to You among the nations.
10For Your lovingkindness is great to the heavens And Your truth to the clouds.
11Be exalted above the heavens, O God; [Let] Your glory [be] above all the earth.
