For the Chief Musician; set toAl-tashheth. A Psalmof David: Michtam: when he fled from Saul, in the cave.

1Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me; for my soul taketh refuge in thee: yea, in the shadow of thy wings will I take refuge, until thesecalamities be overpast.

2I will cry unto God Most High; unto God that performeth all thingsfor me.

3He shall send from heaven, and save me, whenhe that would swallow me up reproacheth;

Selah

God shall send forth his mercy and his truth.

4My soul is among lions; I lie among them that are set on fire, even the sons of men, whose teeth are spears and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.

5Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; letthy glory beabove all the earth.

6They have prepared a net for my steps; thy soul is bowed down: they have digged a pit before me; they are fallen into the midst thereof themselves.

Selah

7My heart is fixed, O God, my heart is fixed: I will sing, yea, I will sing praises.

8Awake up, my glory; awake, psaltery and harp: I myself will awake right early.

9I will give thanks unto thee, O Lord, among the peoples: I will sing praises unto thee among the nations.

10For thy mercy is great unto the heavens, and thy truth unto the skies.

11Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens; letthy glory beabove all the earth.
