56:4 In God I will praise his word, in God I have put my trust; I will not fear what flesh can do unto me.

56:5 Every day they wrest my words: all their thoughts are against me for evil.

56:6 They gather themselves together, they hide themselves, they mark my steps, when they wait for my soul.

56:7 Shall they escape by iniquity? in thine anger cast down the people, O God.

56:8 Thou tellest my wanderings: put thou my tears into thy bottle: are they not in thy book?

56:9 When I cry unto thee, then shall mine enemies turn back: this I know; for God is for me.

56:11 In God have I put my trust: I will not be afraid what man can do unto me.

56:12 Thy vows are upon me, O God: I will render praises unto thee.

56:13 For 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?

God, shalt bring them down into the pit of destruction: bloody and deceitful men shall not live out half their days; but I will trust in thee.
