Psalm 57
Berean Study Bible

In You My Soul Takes Refuge
(1 Samuel 22:1–5; Psalm 108:1–13; Psalm 142:1–7)

For the choirmaster. To the tune of “Do Not Destroy.” A Miktama of David, when he fled from Saul into the cave.

1Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy,

for in You my soul takes refuge.

In the shadow of Your wings I will take shelter

until the danger has passed.

2I cry out to God Most High,b

to God who fulfills His purpose for me.

3He reaches down from heaven and saves me;

He rebukes those who trample me.


God sends forth

His loving devotion and His truth.

4My soul is among the lions;

I lie down with ravenous beasts—

with men whose teeth are spears and arrows,

whose tongues are sharp swords.

5Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;

may Your glory cover all the earth.

6They spread a net for my feet;

my soul was despondent.

They dug a pit before me,

but they themselves have fallen into it!


7My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast.

I will sing and make music.

8Awake, my glory!c

Awake, O harp and lyre!

I will awaken the dawn.

9I will praise You, O Lord, among the nations;

I will sing Your praises among the peoples.

10For Your loving devotion reaches to the heavens,

and Your faithfulness to the clouds.

11Be exalted, O God, above the heavens;

may Your glory cover all the earth.
