The Book of Psalms

  Psalm 56  

56:1 Unto the end, destroy not, for David, for an inscription of a title, when he fled from Saul into the cave

56:1 In finem ne disperdas David in tituli inscriptionem cum fugeret a facie Saul in speluncam

56:2 Have mercy on me, O God, have mercy on me: for my soul trusteth in thee. And in the shadow of thy wings will I hope, until iniquity pass away.

56:2 Miserere mei Deus miserere mei quoniam in te confidit anima mea et in umbra alarum tuarum sperabo donec transeat iniquitas

56:3 I will cry to God the most High; to God who hath done good to me.

56:3 Clamabo ad Deum altissimum Deum qui benefecit mihi

56:4 He hath sent from heaven and delivered me: he hath made them a reproach that trod upon me. God hath sent his mercy and his truth,

56:4 Misit de caelo et liberavit me dedit in obprobrium conculcantes me misit Deus misericordiam suam et veritatem suam

56:5 and he hath delivered my soul from the midst of the young lions. I slept troubled. The sons of men, whose teeth are weapons and arrows, and their tongue a sharp sword.

56:5 Et eripuit animam meam de medio catulorum leonum dormivi conturbatus filii hominum dentes eorum arma et sagittae et lingua eorum gladius acutus

56:6 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens, and thy glory above all the earth.

56:6 Exaltare super caelos Deus et in omnem terram gloria tua

56:7 They prepared a snare for my feet; and they bowed down my soul. They dug a pit before my face, and they are fallen into it.

56:7 Laqueum paraverunt pedibus meis et incurvaverunt animam meam foderunt ante faciem meam foveam et inciderunt in eam

56:8 My heart is ready, O God, my heart is ready: I will Sing, and rehearse a psalm.

56:8 Paratum cor meum Deus paratum cor meum cantabo et psalmum dicam

56:9 Arise, O my glory, arise psaltery and harp: I will arise early.

56:9 Exsurge gloria mea exsurge psalterium et cithara exsurgam diluculo

56:10 I will give praise to thee, O Lord, among the people: I will sing a psalm to thee among the nations.

56:10 Confitebor tibi in populis Domine psalmum dicam tibi in gentibus

56:11 For thy mercy is magnified even to the heavens: and thy truth unto the clouds.

56:11 Quoniam magnificata est usque ad caelos misericordia tua et usque ad nubes veritas tua

56:12 Be thou exalted, O God, above the heavens: and thy glory above all the earth.

56:12 Exaltare super caelos Deus et super omnem terram gloria tua
