Psalm 56
Orthodox Jewish Bible
1 (For the director. Set to The Silent, Distant Yonah. Of Dovid. A mikhtam—when the Pelishtim seized him in Gat.) Chaneini (be merciful) unto me, O Elohim: for enosh (man) tramples upon me; kol hayom they press their attack against me.

2 (3) (3) Mine adversaries kol hayom trample me; for they be rabbim that fight against me, Marom (Most High).

3 (4) (4) What time I am afraid, I will trust in Thee.

4 (5) (5) In Elohim I will praise His Word [T.N. see Yn 1:1,14]. In Elohim I have put my trust; I will not fear what basar can do unto me.

5 (6) (6) Kol hayom they twist my words; all their machsh'vot (thoughts) are against me for rah (evil).

6 (7) (7) They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they are shomer over my steps, when they wait for my nefesh.

7 (8) (8) Shall they escape by iniquity? In Thine anger cast down the amim (peoples), O Elohim.

8 (9) (9) Thou hast acted as a sofer, recording my wanderings; put Thou my tears into Thy wineskin; are they not in Thy Sefer (Book)?

9 (10) (10) On the day when I cry unto Thee, then shall mine oyevim turn back; of this I have da'as; for Elohim is for me [Ro 8:31].

10 (11) (11) In Elohim will I praise His Word; in Hashem will I praise His Word [Yn 1:1; Proverbs 30:4; Ps 33:6; Proverbs 8:30].

11 (12) (12) In Elohim have I put my trust; I will not be afraid. What can adam do unto me?

12 (13) (13) Thy nederim are upon me, O Elohim; I will render todot (thank offerings) unto Thee.

13 (14) (14) For Thou hast delivered my nefesh from mavet (death). Wilt not Thou deliver my feet from stumblimg, that I may walk before Elohim in the Ohr HaChayyim (the light of the living)?
