To the leader: according to The Dove on Far‐off Terebinths. Of David. A Miktam, when the Philistines seized him in Gath. 1

Be gracious to me, O God, for people trample on me; all day long foes oppress me; 2 my enemies trample on me all day long, for many fight against me. O Most High, 3when I am afraid, I put my trust in you. 4 In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I am not afraid; what can flesh do to me?

5

All day long they seek to injure my cause; all their thoughts are against me for evil. 6 They stir up strife, they lurk, they watch my steps. As they hoped to have my life, 7 so repay a Heb lacks with me them for their crime; in wrath cast down the peoples, O God!

8

You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your record? 9 Then my enemies will retreat in the day when I call. This I know, that b Or Cast what he has given you God is for me. 10 In God, whose word I praise, in the LORD, whose word I praise, 11 in God I trust; I am not afraid. What can a mere mortal do to me?

12

My vows to you I must perform, O God; I will render thank offerings to you. 13 For you have delivered my soul from death, and my feet from falling, so that I may walk before God in the light of life.

Notes:
