Psalm of David
1 Be gracious to me, O God, be gracious to me for I take refuge in you. Yes, in the shadow of your wings, I will take refuge until disaster has passed.
2 I cry out to God Most High, To God who works for me.
3 He will send from heaven, and save me, He rebukes the one who is pursuing me. God will send out his loving kindness and his truth.
4 I am among lions. I lie among those who are set on fire, even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows. Their tongue is a sharp sword.
5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens! Let your glory be above all the earth!
6 They have prepared a net for my steps. I am bowed down. They dig a pit before me. But they have fallen into it.
7 My heart is steadfast O God. Yes my heart is steadfast. I will sing, yes, I will sing and make melody.
8 Wake up, my glory! Wake up, stringed instrument and harp! I will wake up the dawn.
9 I will give thanks to you among the peoples, O Jehovah. I will sing praises to you among the nations.
10 For your great loving kindness reaches to the heavens, and your truth to the skies.
11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens. Let your glory be over all the earth.
