To the leader: Do Not Destroy. Of David. A Miktam, 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, until the destroying storms pass by. 2 I cry 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 those who trample on me. Selah God will send forth his steadfast love and his faithfulness.

4

I lie down among lions that greedily devour a Cn: Heb rescue human prey; their teeth are spears and arrows, their tongues 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 path, 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 soul! 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 as high as the heavens; your faithfulness extends to the clouds.

11

Be exalted, O God, above the heavens. Let your glory be over all the earth.
