Psalm 57 - Let Your Glory Be over All the Earth

Let Your Glory Be over All the Earth

To the choirmaster: according to Do Not Destroy. A Miktam[1] of David, when he fled from Saul, in the cave.


1 Be merciful to me, O God, be merciful to me,

for in you my soul takes refuge;

in the shadow of your wings I will take refuge,

till the storms of destruction pass by.

2 I cry out to God Most High,

to God who fulfills his purpose for me.

3 He will send from heaven and save me;

he will put to shame him who tramples on me. Selah

God will send out his steadfast love and his faithfulness!


4 My soul is in the midst of lions;

I lie down amid fiery beasts—

the children of man, whose teeth are spears and arrows,

whose tongues are sharp swords.


5 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!

Let your glory be over all the earth!


6 They set a net for my steps;

my soul was bowed down.

They dug a pit in my way,

but they have fallen into it themselves. Selah

7 My heart is steadfast, O God,

my heart is steadfast!

I will sing and make melody!

8 Awake, my glory!

Awake, O harp and lyre!

I will awake the dawn!

9 I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples;

I will sing praises to you among the nations.

10 For your steadfast love is great to the heavens,

your faithfulness to the clouds.


11 Be exalted, O God, above the heavens!

Let your glory be over all the earth!
