Tehillim 57

Orthodox Jewish Bible (OJB)

(For the one directing. Set to Do Not Destroy. Mikhtam of Dovid, when he had fled from Sha’ul into the me’arah [cave]). Channeni, O Elohim, channeni; for my nefesh taketh refuge in Thee; yes, in the tzel (shadow) of Thy wings will I make my refuge, until these devastations pass by. 2 I will cry out unto Elohim Elyon; unto El that fulfilleth all things for me. 3 He shall send from Shomayim, and save me from the disgrace of him that would swallow me up. Selah. Elohim shall send forth His chesed (lovingkindness) and His emes (truth). 4 My nefesh is among lions, and I lie even among them that devour Bnei Adam, whose shinayim (teeth) are spears and khitzim (arrows), and their leshon a sharp cherev. 5 Be Thou exalted, O Elohim, above Shomayim; let Thy kavod be above kol ha’aretz. 6 They have prepared a reshet (net) for my steps; my nefesh is bowed down; they have dug a pit before me, into the midst whereof they are fallen themselves. Selah. 7 My lev is nachon (steadfast), O Elohim, my lev is nachon; I will sing and make music. 8 Awake, my kavod (glory, soul, life); awake, nevel and kinnor; I myself will awake the shachar (dawn). 9 I will give thanks unto Thee, Adonoi, among the peoples; I will sing of Thee among the peoples. 10 For Thy chesed is gadol unto Shomayim, and Thy emes unto the heights. 11 Be Thou exalted, O Elohim, above Shomayim; let Thy kavod be above kol ha’aretz (all the earth).
