In God I Trust

To the choirmaster: according to The Dove on Far-off Terebinths. A Miktam of David, when the Philistines seized him in Gath.

1Be gracious to me, O God, for man tramples on me;

all day long an attacker oppresses me;

2my enemies trample on me all day long,

for many attack me proudly.

3When I am afraid,

I put my trust in you.

4In God, whose word I praise,

in God I trust; I shall not be afraid.

What can flesh do to me?

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.

7For their crime will they escape?

In wrath cast down the peoples, O God!

8You have kept count of my tossings;

put my tears in your bottle.

Are they not in your book?

9Then my enemies will turn back

in the day when I call.

This I know, that God is for me.

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?

12I must perform my vows to you, O God;

I will render thank offerings to you.

13For you have delivered my soul from death,

yes, my feet from falling,

that I may walk before God

in the light of life.
