1Be merciful unto me, O Elohim, be merciful unto me: for my soul trusteth in Thee:
yea, in the shadow of Thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast. 2 I will cry unto Elohim most high; unto El that performeth all things for me. 3 He shall send from heaven, and save from the reproach of him that would swallow me up.
Elohim shall send forth His mercy and His truth. 4 My soul is among lions: and I lie even among them that are set on fire, even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.
5 Be Thou exalted, O Elohim, above the heavens; let Thy glory be above all the earth.
6 They have prepared a net for my steps; my soul is bowed down:
they have digged a pit before me, into the midst whereof they are fallen themselves.
7 My heart is fixed, O Elohim, my heart is fixed: I will sing and give praise. 8 Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake early. 9 I will praise Thee, O YHWH, among the people: I will sing unto Thee among the nations. 10 For Thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and Thy truth unto the clouds. 11 Be Thou exalted, O Elohim, above the heavens: let Thy glory be above all the earth.
Psalm 57 RNKJV
