Psalm 56
Brenton's Septuagint Translation Par ▾ 

Be Merciful to Me, O God

1(55:1) For the end, concerning the people that were removed from the sanctuary, by David for a memorial, when the Philistines caught him in Geth. Have mercy upon me, O God; for man has trodden me down; all the day long he warring has afflicted me.

2(55:2) Mine enemies have trodden me down all the day from the dawning of the day; for there are many warring against me.

3(55:3) They shall be afraid, but I will trust in thee.

4(55:4) In God I will praise my words; all the day have I hoped in God; I will not fear what flesh shall do to me.

5(55:5) All the day long they have abominated my words; all their devices are against me for evil.

6(55:6) They will dwell near and hide themselves; they will watch my steps, accordingly as I have waited patiently in my soul.

7(55:7) Thou wilt on no account save them; thou wilt bring down the people in wrath.

8(55:8) O God, I have declared my life to thee; thou has set my tears before thee, even according to thy promise.

9(55:9) Mine enemies shall be turned back, in the day wherein I shall call upon thee; behold, I know that thou art my God.

10(55:10) In God, will I praise his word; in the Lord will I praise his saying.

11(55:11) I have hoped in God; I will not be afraid of what man shall do to me.

12(55:12) The vows of thy praise, O God, which I will pay, are upon me.

13(55:13) For thou hast delivered my soul from death, and my feet from sliding, that I should be well-pleasing before God in the land of the living.
