By day the LORD directs his love, at night his song is with me-- a prayer to the God of my life.
As for me, I call to God, and the LORD saves me.
For the director of music. To the tune of "A Dove on Distant Oaks." Of David. A miktam. When the Philistines had seized him in Gath. Be merciful to me, my God, for my enemies are in hot pursuit; all day long they press their attack.
My adversaries pursue me all day long; in their pride many are attacking me.
