1: To the Overseer. -- 'On the Dumb Dove far off.' -- A secret treasure of David, in the Philistines' taking hold of him in Gath. Favour me, O God, for man swallowed me up, All the day fighting he oppresseth me, 2: Mine enemies have swallowed up all the day, For many [are] fighting against me, O most High, 3: The day I am afraid I am confident toward Thee. 4: In God I praise His word, in God I have trusted, I fear not what flesh doth to me. 5: All the day they wrest my words, Concerning me all their thoughts [are] for evil, 6: They assemble, they hide, they watch my heels, When they have expected my soul. 7: By iniquity they escape, In anger the peoples put down, O God. 8: My wandering Thou hast counted, Thou -- place Thou my tear in Thy bottle, Are they not in Thy book? 9: Then turn back do mine enemies in the day I call. This I have known, that God [is] for me. 10: In God I praise the word, In Jehovah I praise the word. 11: In God I trusted, I fear not what man doth to me, 12: On me, O God, [are] Thy vows, I repay thank-offerings to Thee. 13: For Thou hast delivered my soul from death, Dost Thou not my feet from falling? To walk habitually before God in the light of the living!
