To the director; set to “Do Not Bring to Ruin.” Of David. Mikʹtam.* When he ran away from Saul into the cave.+
57 Show me favor, O God, show me favor,
And in the shadow of your wings I take refuge until the troubles pass.+
2 I call to God the Most High,
To the true God, who brings them to an end for me.
3 He will send help from heaven and save me.+
He will frustrate the one snapping at me. (Selah)
God will send his loyal love and his faithfulness.+
I must lie among men who want to devour me,
Whose teeth are spears and arrows
And whose tongue is a sharp sword.+
They have dug a pit ahead of me,
But they fell into it themselves.+ (Selah)
I will sing and make music.
8 Do awake, my glory.
Do awake, O stringed instrument; you too, O harp.
I will awaken the dawn.+
