Psalms Chapters

1 Unto the end, for a people that is removed at a distance from the sanctuary for David, for an inscription of a title (or pillar) when the Philistines held him in Geth.

2 Have mercy on me, O God, for man hath trodden me under foot; all the day long he hath afflicted me fighting against me.

3 My enemies have trodden on me all the day long; for they are many that make war against me.

4 From the height of the day I shall fear: but I will trust in thee.

5 In God I will praise my words, in God I have put my trust: I will not fear what flesh can do against me.

6 All the day long they detested my words: all their thoughts were against me unto evil.

7 They will dwell and hide themselves: they will watch my heel. As they have waited for my soul,

8 For nothing shalt thou save them: in thy anger thou shalt break the people in pieces, O God,

9 I have declared to thee my life: thou hast set my tears in thy sight, As also in thy promise.

10 Then shall my enemies be turned back. In what day soever I shall call upon thee, behold I know thou art my God.

11 In God will I praise the word, in the Lord will I praise his speech.

12 In God have I hoped, I will not fear what man can do to me.

13 In me, O God, are vows to thee, which I will pay, praises to thee:

14 Because thou hast delivered my soul from death, my feet from falling: that I may please in the sight of God, in the light of the living.
