|<< Psalm 56 >>|
Aramaic Bible in Plain English
Show mercy upon me, God, because man has trodden upon me, and all day the warrior has persecuted me, because a multitude of warriors are risen up against me.
2My enemies have trodden upon me all day.
3In the daytime I will not be afraid, because it is upon you I trust.
4In God I shall triumph; in God I have hoped; I will not be afraid what a man does to me.
5All day they have been conspiring against me and they have been plotting evil against me.
6They will lie in wait and they will stay and they will watch my steps as they lay wait for my life.
7And they said, “There is no Savior for him.” Judge them in the wrath of the nations, oh, God!
8I have shown you my confession; put my tears before you and in your book.
9Then my enemies shall turn their back and I shall know that God is for me.
10I shall praise the word of God!
11In God I trust. I will not fear what a man does to me.
12To you, oh God, I shall fulfill my vows, and I shall offer thanksgiving to you.
13Because you have delivered my soul from death and my feet from slipping, that I may be pleasing before you, God, in the land of the living.
