Psalm 57:1-11 (KJV):
1Be merciful unto me, O
God, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in thee: yea, in the shadow of
thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast.
2I will cry unto God most
high; unto God that performeth all things for me.
3He shall send from heaven,
and save me from the reproach of him that would swallow me up. Selah. God
shall send forth his mercy and his truth.
4My soul is among lions: and
I lie even among them that are set on fire, even the sons of men,
whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.
5Be thou exalted, O God,
above the heavens; let thy glory be above all the earth.
6They have prepared a net
for my steps; my soul is bowed down: they have digged a pit before me, into the
midst whereof they are fallen themselves. Selah.
7My heart is fixed, O God,
my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise.
8Awake up, my glory; awake,
psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early.
9I will praise thee, O Lord,
among the people: I will sing unto thee among the nations.
10For thy mercy is
great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the clouds.
11Be thou exalted, O God,
above the heavens: let thy glory be above all the earth.
