Chapter 57

PSA.57:1 <<To the Chief Musician. Set to “Do Not Destroy.” A Michtam of David when he fled from Saul into the cave.>> Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me! For my soul trusts in You; And in the shadow of Your wings I will make my refuge, Until these calamities have passed by.
PSA.57:2 I will cry out to God Most High, To God who performs all things for me.
PSA.57:3 He shall send from heaven and save me; He reproaches the one who would swallow me up. Selah God shall send forth His mercy and His truth.
PSA.57:4 My soul is among lions; I lie among the sons of men Who are set on fire, Whose teeth are spears and arrows, And their tongue a sharp sword.
PSA.57:5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; Let Your glory be above all the earth.
PSA.57:6 They have prepared a net for my steps; My soul is bowed down; They have dug a pit before me; Into the midst of it they themselves have fallen. Selah
PSA.57:7 My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing and give praise.
PSA.57:8 Awake, my glory! Awake, lute and harp! I will awaken the dawn.
PSA.57:9 I will praise You, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing to You among the nations.
PSA.57:10 For Your mercy reaches unto the heavens, And Your truth unto the clouds.
PSA.57:11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; Let Your glory be above all the earth.
Chapter 58
PSA.58:1 <<To the Chief Musician. Set to “Do Not Destroy.” A Michtam of David.>> Do you indeed speak righteousness, you silent ones? Do you judge uprightly, you sons of men?
PSA.58:2 No, in heart you work wickedness; You weigh out the violence of your hands in the earth.
PSA.58:3 The wicked are estranged from the womb; They go astray as soon as they are born, speaking lies.
PSA.58:4 Their poison is like the poison of a serpent; They are like the deaf cobra that stops its ear,
PSA.58:5 Which will not heed the voice of charmers, Charming ever so skillfully.
PSA.58:6 Break their teeth in their mouth, O God! Break out the fangs of the young lions, O LORD!
PSA.58:7 Let them flow away as waters which run continually; When he bends his bow, Let his arrows be as if cut in pieces.
PSA.58:8 Let them be like a snail which melts away as it goes, Like a stillborn child of a woman, that they may not see the sun.
PSA.58:9 Before your pots can feel the burning thorns, He shall take them away as with a whirlwind, As in His living and burning wrath.
PSA.58:10 The righteous shall rejoice when he sees the vengeance; He shall wash his feet in the blood of the wicked,
PSA.58:11 So that men will say, “Surely there is a reward for the righteous; Surely He is God who judges in the earth.”
