Supplication for Rescue and Grateful Trust in God.
1 Be gracious to me, O God, for man has trampled on me; all day long the adversary oppresses and torments me.
2 My enemies have trampled upon me all day long, for they are many who fight proudly against me.
3 When I am afraid, I will put my trust and faith in You.
4 In God, whose word I praise; in God I have put my trust; I shall not fear. What can mere man do to me?
5 All day long they twist my words and say hurtful things; all their thoughts are against me for evil.
6 They attack, they hide and lurk, they watch my steps, as they have [expectantly] waited to take my life.
7 Cast them out because of their wickedness. In anger bring down the peoples, O God!
8 You have taken account of my wanderings; put my tears in Your bottle. Are they not recorded in Your book?
9 Then my enemies will turn back in the day when I call; this I know, that God is for me.
10 In God, whose word I praise, In the Lord, whose word I praise,
11 In God have I put my trust and confident reliance; I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?
12 Your vows are binding upon me, O God; I will give thank offerings to You.
13 For You have rescued my soul from death, Yes, and my feet from stumbling, So that I may walk before God in the light of life.Psalm 56:1-12 (AMP)
