1To the chief Musician upon Jonathelemrechokim, Michtam of David, when the Philistines took him in Gath. Be merciful unto me, O God: for man would swallow me up; he fighting daily oppresseth me.2Mine enemies would daily swallow me up: for they be many that fight against me, O thou most High.3What time I am afraid, I will trust in thee.4In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.5Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.6They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.7Shall they escape by iniquity? in thine anger cast down the people, O God.8Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?9When I cry unto thee , then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.10In God will I praise his word: in the LORD will I praise his word.11In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.12Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee.13For thou hast delivered my soul from death: wilt not thou deliver my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of the living?

In God I Trust
1To the choirmaster: according to The Dove on Far-off Terebinths. A Miktam of David, when the Philistines seized him in Gath. Be gracious to me, O God, for man tramples on me; all day long an attacker oppresses me; (1Sa 21:10; 1Sa 22:1; Ps 4:1; Ps 16:1; Ps 57:1; Ps 57:3)2my enemies trample on me all day long, for many attack me proudly.3When I am afraid, I put my trust in you. (Ps 11:1)4In God, whose word I praise, in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can flesh do to me? (Ps 27:1; Ps 118:6; Isa 51:12; Heb 13:6)5All day long they injure my cause; all their thoughts are against me for evil.6They stir up strife, they lurk; they watch my steps, as they have waited for my life. (Ps 10:8; Ps 59:3; Ps 71:10; Ps 140:2; Isa 54:15)7For their crime will they escape? In wrath cast down the peoples, O God! (Ps 7:6; Ps 55:23; Ps 59:5)8You have kept count of my tossings; put my tears in your bottle. Are they not in your book? (2Ki 20:5; Ps 39:12; Mal 3:16)9Then my enemies will turn back in the day when I call. This I know, that God is for me. (Ps 102:2; Ps 118:6; Ro 8:31)10In God, whose word I praise, in the Lord, whose word I praise,11in God I trust; I shall not be afraid. What can man do to me? (Ps 56:4)12I must perform my vows to you, O God; I will render thank offerings to you. (Ps 50:14)13For you have delivered my soul from death, yes, my feet from falling, that I may walk before God in the light of life. (Ps 49:15; Ps 49:19; Ps 116:8; Ps 116:9)
