Tehillim 56

Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

(For the director. Set to The Silent, Distant Yonah. Of Dovid. A mikhtam—when the Pelishtim seized him in Gat.) Chaneini (be merciful) unto me, O Elohim: for enosh (man) tramples upon me; kol hayom they press their attack against me. 2 Mine adversaries kol hayom trample me; for they be rabbim that fight against me, Marom (Most High). 3 What time I am afraid, I will trust in Thee. 4 In Elohim I will praise His Word. In Elohim I have put my trust; I will not fear what basar can do unto me. 5 Kol hayom they twist my words; all their machsh’vot (thoughts) are against me for rah (evil). 6 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they are shomer over my steps, when they wait for my nefesh. 7 Shall they escape by iniquity? In Thine anger cast down the amim (peoples), O Elohim. 8 Thou hast acted as a sofer, recording my wanderings; put Thou my tears into Thy wineskin; are they not in Thy Sefer (Book)? 9 On the day when I cry unto Thee, then shall mine oyevim turn back; of this I have da’as; for Elohim is for me. 10 In Elohim will I praise His Word; in Hashem will I praise His Word. 11 In Elohim have I put my trust; I will not be afraid. What can adam do unto me? 12 Thy nederim are upon me, O Elohim; I will render todot (thank offerings) unto Thee. 13 For Thou hast delivered my nefesh from mavet (death). Wilt not Thou deliver my feet from stumblimg, that I may walk before Elohim in the Ohr HaChayyim (the light of the living)?
